I thought I read somewhere that it had been planned for this week but it is was likely to be the 27th or something as they wanted to release it across all platforms at the same time and Microsoft/Sony had to clear it for beta.

The sooner you get behind, the longer you have to catch up.

He wont get any headstart as the only thing carried over from the beta is you soldier name, stats are all reset, Is in the faq about the beta on the bf3 site.

You haven't? Well, it's definitely paddling it's way right to you as we speak. The power supply unit seems to be the culprit. It's a shame I've got to send it to the Netherlands if I want a replacement within warranty.

I also read beta testers will have their stats reset so won't get a head start stats-wise. They'll be a little more practised though. Me? I will be lucky to even play the game on release, it's going to be a long time before my PC's back from its trip to Swanny-land. smile

Minimum system requirements have been announced. Looks like people playing on a PC will need to invest heavily in new hardware if they've anything older than Core 2 and a 8800/9800 series graphics card. No good having XP either.

The beta is planned for Tues 27th Sept for those with advanced tickets and Thursday 29th Sept for everyone else.

My PSU is dead. The only spare I have is 100 miles away. What am I gonna do????

The one I'm looking at is expensive. Had a look at a round up review at Bit tech and the recommendation seems to be Seasonic X series. Whichever way you cut it, it's going to cost me a tonne.

I need a load of sata power connectors as I have lots of drives which need powering and enough watts to power one hungry graphics card and overclocked CPU etc. So I don't need more than about 600W really. I could get away with a much lower rated one providing the quality is there but it won't have anywhere near enough connectors (as it'll be designed to power smaller loads and will cut back on the number of connectors).

Stability and power efficiency is important to me. The one it's replacing is an OCZ Elitestream 800W PSU, which had good reviews at the time. Unfortunately, though it's still under manufacturer's guarantee their RMA centre for Europe is based in the smegging Netherlands so it's going to cost me at least £20 to send this 3kg beasty back and that's without adequate insurance (£46 tops and no tracking/signature). It'll cost closer to £40 to get proper safeguards against it getting lost so I'm not sure it'll be worth sending back.

Hohum. confused Oh yeah, money? You gotta be kidding me right? Got my house insurance bill coming up this month and they want to take a nice bite out of the money I've not spent on games and gadgets. Guess I could cough up the dosh and buy a train ticket to go collect that old Enermax PSU though. Hmm. smile
