Take cover! Beefy Battlefield 3 beta requirements posted

BF3 Sniper

Just when I thought my latest upgrade meant I was safe for another year, the Battlefield 3 beta requirements come along and disturb my bliss. I could run it on my Core 2 Duo, but somehow I suspect Battlefield 3 doesn't want me to. Call it a hunch, or call it the recommended system requirements that DICE posted online.

These are the beta requirements , but it seems like a safe bet that the final requirements won't depart too much from what DICE is saying right now. Hit the jump to see what you need, and what you really should have. Celebrate or weep appropriately.
