This Battlefield 3 Computer Could Stop A Bullet Or Two

This Battlefield 3 Computer Could Stop A Bullet Or Two

Put aside the platform pissing match between EA and Valve over Battlefield 3 for a moment, PC fans, and let’s all enjoy a nice custom PC casemod based on DICE’s upcoming shooter.

Marketing team SeeBark Media built this wonderful custom PC in honour of Battlefield 3, emblazoning the side with labels honouring the game’s engine and developers and sticking the whole thing inside a very military- looking case.

I’d be scared to turn it on. I’d think it would either blow up my neighbour’s house or I’d suddenly hear somebody on the radio screaming for close fire support. Which, you know, I don’t really do.

Those curious about its specs, they are as follows:

Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge Quad-Core Desktop Processor Fixed@3.7

Cooler Master GeminII 120mm CPU Cooler

Asus Maximus IV Gene-Z MicroATX Z68 Motherboard

Gigabyte GV-N570OC-13I GeForce GTX 570 1280MB Video Card

Corsair Vengeance 8GB (PC3 12800) 8-8-8-24@1600 XMS Memory

Crucial M4 64GB SATA III MLC Solid State Drive

Corsair 750-Watt HX Professional Series Power Supply

2x Cooler Master Excalibur 120mm PWM Case Fans

2x SilverStone 120mm Fan Filters with Grills

Custom BF3 Modded Case [Seebark, thanks Paul!]

    • What are you one of those people who has to have SLi, even though the current generation of cards doesn’t really need to run anything more.

      • I haven’t seen benchmarks for a final build of BF3…. but it looks like a beast.
        Why not a single 580 even?
        My point is with a custom machine as pretty as this i’d go completely balls out with the specs too. (not to mention the cpu)

      • Actually it’s far from overkill.

        On a rig like that (or similar) you’d get roughly (with everything on full);
        28-30 fps on Metro 2033 (DX11)
        35-36 fps on AvP(DX11)
        35 fps on Crysis Warhead(DX10)

        and so on.

        • not true. this is pretty much the same as my new built (i have the i7 2600k, same gpu, motherboard, ram)

          i get 50+ frames on metro and AvP with DX11 everything full.

          • Further looking into it; there is no way in hell you’re getting 50+ with everything on full (including tessellation) at 1900×1200. Benchmarks for the 570 using the same or similar rigs are achieving 47-49fps max with the settings only set to high (not full) and with tessellation turned off.

  • That is damn cool. Makes me want to really get into case modding and such.

    Just a shame about the choice of a single 570 and the system crippling 750w PSU.

  • The more I look at it now, the more I get a Fallout 3 vibe instead of a BF3 vibe, I think it’s the rounded edges of the box (which to me makes it seem dated) and the colour of the lighting.

  • thats a very good computer compared to mine now. i wonder if they will release this to be able to purchase. because i would. plus i hope it can run battlefield 3 max setting.
