    Seagate 1TB Sata6gb

    Always nice to see a fellow builder in the forums. I think my rigs have me spoiled and I wouldn't even want to play BF3 on the SPRO.

    Update on BF3. Over in an EA thread, they provided us with a special version of Origin for Surface Pro to fix the issue with launching Origin games. I was able to run BF3 at 20fps at 1366x768 on low. This was on multi-player/online, so I'm hoping I can get a few more fps out of it during offline/campaign mode. I'm pretty impressed...hope I can make a few more tweaks and get it to 25fps.

    I am always amazed when trolls decide to give their 2 cents. Thanks for the great contribution.
    $2500?!

Even if it's just to play the campaign that I haven't gotten around to doing yet.
    You, sir or madam, have more patience than I do. I tried to play the campaign and gave up trying. It's pretty terrible. Expect to have your hand held for EVERYTHING, and to go through a completely different flying experience than in multi-player. Seriously, this game's campaign is not meant to be played, I think. Sorry, just my $0.02.

    They have said before that the BF SP is little more than a tutorial. All the games have played like that. The Bad Company off shoots were funny though. I liked the BF3 campaign though.

    You don't fly the jet in BF3's SP...do you? I thought you were just the gunner? It has been a long time since I played that mission...
