It wont hurt but the game is fairly CPU & GPU intensive. It would prudent to splash your cash on those items and then increase your ram.

Re: Help!


4Gb is too low you're probably swapping out to disk from time to time. Whether to upgrade or not depends on the spec of your whole rig.

As an example during beta a tech dev was posting on here about how to get a good experience. He reckoned at the time that PS2 needed 6Gb to work smoothly which in practise means 8Gb installed. Of course that's not to say that it won't work with 4Gb.

Are you running a 64bit OS? I ask because 4Gb machines usually didn't and if your OS is 32bit then although you may have 4Gb installed you're actually only using about 3Gb.

Sethy is also correct, this game relies heavily on a fast CPU, if you have a slow CPU you'll get poor performance.

Game only runs on 64bit now...

I did the following test just now:

Logged in but only spawned in to the world and redeployed to a front line base. Didn't go outside or move from the spawn tube. The game is using 3GB. So getting in to places where the battle is heavy could probably take up another 1GB, leaving you to hit the page file on your hard drive which can slow you down...

In-game Settings
  • Graphics Quality: HIGH
  • Texture Quality: ULTRA
  • All the rest: MEDIUM
