The trouble with games like Battlefield 3 is that, unless and until you have a powerful enough rig to enjoy all of its bells and whistles, the much coveted ‘experience’ of it is just not complete. Of course, the visual treats comes at a hefty cost if you don’t know your way around, which is precisely why NVIDIA has jumped to help potential upgraders with a neat little guide to build a “kick-ass” PC that is not only optimal to play Battlefield 3 at the highest settings, but is also optimized for the wallet as well.

NVIDIA has come up with three builds that can play Battlefield 3 at High, Ultra Quality & Ultra Performance.

The ‘High Preset’ build consists of an Intel Core i5-2300@ 2.8GHz, 4GB of 1600 SD RAM, an Intel P67 motherboard and a GeForce GTX 560 1GB. It costs $703.

The ‘Ultra Quality Preset’ build consists of an Intel Core i5-2500K@ 3.3GHz, G.SKILL 8GB RAM, an Intel P67 motherboard and GTX 560. It costs a little higher at $1355.

And finally, the ‘Ultra Performance Preset’ build, which costs a massive $2000, consists of an Intel Core i5-2500K@ 3.3GHz, G.SKILL 8GB RAM, an Intel P67 motherboard, and a 1536MB GTX580.

The last build should be capable of playing the game with 3D Vision enabled, however NVIDIA is waiting for DICE to add “support for the game-enhancing features” before it proceeds with its benchmarks.

You can read the guide for exact details on how and why the systems were selected. I am sure hardware techies will beg to defer with some of hardware chosen by NVIDIA, so post your ideal configuration in our comments section below.
