Hey, need to know if my system (that is on its way) will work with BFV at it's highest settings with no lag.

Dell Dimension 8400: -Pentium 4 w/ 3GHz and HT -512MB of DDR2 SDRAM @ 400MHz -128MB PCI Express ATI Radeon x800SE graphics card -Integrated dolby sound -80 Gig hard drive -17" CRT monitor

So basically will I be able to play BFV with the settings maxed out? Or will I have to turn it down just a little bit? I know everyone will just be guessing, but as long as they are accurate then I'm fine. Thanks for the help guys and I hope to see you soon when I get my computer. Thanks for all your help.:cya: SIDE NOTE: Apologies to Padre and the other members of this forum for one of my friends obscene language and hostility in a recent thread.

You should be fine. Though if your wallet permits, some point down the road you may want to think about investing on another 512 stick O' RAM. Play ithe game first. If you liike the performance then go with what you got. It's also going to depend on how large a server you play on...Peoplewise. You could be playing on a 12-16 player server and everything will look absolutely stunning, but move up into the 32+ player servers and you will notice a difference in how your game reacts. You will probably need to turn down someof the graphics quality to get the same frame rates that you were getting in the smaller servers. But this is just what I've experienced.

Thanks for the reply; however, wouldnt the lag in a 32 person server be based mainly on my connection? (I've got cable) and also I've been told that the clocking speeds of the x800se are almost the same of the 9800. (Those came from Dell tech. reps, other forums, and family) Not to mention the prices alone are similar. Could it be possible for this card to be just as good if not a little bit better then 9800? Or maybe just a tad bit slower, but would keep up? Thanks for the replies.

I believe that card is a tad better than the 9800 pro. You will be just fine playing this game on that card. Install the latest Catalyst driver from ATI.

I would suggest a SB Audigy Z gamer sound card some time down the road. 512 RAm should be fine, but 1 gig would give you better load times and performance, but you will play fine with 512. As for online lag, yeah your connection speed plays a big role, but so does your computer, trying to draw more players and situations on larger player servers.

You should be fine with settings on high. Play around with it, see what FPS and quality you get, then tweak from there.

Oh and your friend needs to be slapped, please do it on behalf of this forum, he really needs to learn some people skills.

Having cable will help. However, with more people on the server it will require your computer to process more information than it would for samller servers, also high pings from other players 200+ can cause your system to bog down as well. Not much you can do about that other than hope that person leaves or initiate a kick vote.

ahh, ok... but all in all you don't think I'll experience much lag with the settings on high? (Maybe 1 or 2 on medium)

you shouldn't, though you might experience a hiccup every once in a while. Best way to find out is to run it and see how it works for yor. Nobody here can really tel you how it's going to run. After all, it's your computer, not theirs. People might be running others apps on their computers that take up some system resources, others may not. But from what I'm seeing in your specs, you should be alright. And if you ask me, I don't think the qualitry in the Med. and high settings are all that different. The game still looks pretty damn good. But like I said, this is just my opinion and you should treat it as such...Just an opinion.
