Battlefield 3 case mod
If you’re not familiar with case modding, it’s the practice of taking a boring PC tower case and turning it into something more pleasant to the eyes. Or building something from the ground up. The guys over at SeeBark Media (via Battlefieldo) started with an old storage container of some sort, and completely modded it to hold one awesome, Battlefield 3-inspired PC. Check out more pictures below, and at SeeBark’s site (including making-of photos and system specs).

        Couldn’t help myself when I read your comment, but an example needs to be set. You really have no idea how computer parts scale do you? With his setup ( http://battlefieldo.com/mind-blowing-bf3-modded-pc-case/ ), which is OC’d his/her computer will play games at least 3 years from now fine @ 30FPS+ w/high-settings. This notion that computer illiterates fail to realize is that you constantly upgrade to maintain that 60+ FPS @ 8xMSAA with everything else maxed out. This is what we call “enthusiast” not “elitist”. If people choose to spend money on what they please so be it. There are those who spend thousands of dollars every year on cars or on boats, planes, guns. If by chance you’re still confused or upset feel free to click on my name, it illustrates your ignorance.

          “his/her computer will play games at least 3 years from now fine @ 30FPS+ w/high-settings.”

          Not being a crybaby dickhead fanboy, but consoles can play any games released on them @30+ fps and max settings for 6-7 years and they cost half as much..

          Not saying ur an idiot for buying a PC, your entitled to make that choice, but stop acting as if their superior in every way. we know that they can run things better. we also know they cost alot more and become outdated alot faster, this is the price you must pay for running things better. stop trying to say that they are cheaper because anyone with more than one brain cell can tell you that PCs cost more.

          @Colt_Gun
          Actually you’re the one who’s implying that PC’s are more expensive, my original response was the ignorance revolving around annual upgrades. But now that you’d mention costs, are PC’s really that expensive? Do you buy new or used or even wait? People always get suckered into advertising to “BUY NOW” mentality when really you can wait a year for prices to drop 15-50%. Consoles at release and during that year were at $1000-$900, at least by waiting to buy a new GPU you let drivers mature and tweak bugs. Unlike the console industry CPU/GPU companies compete with each other quarterly which leads to better products/lower prices, when it comes time to seasonal sales that’s usually the time to upgrade (given that products that haven’t been released in last 2months). But why bother trying to sell you on these points. Console manufactures, game publishers and game retailers gouge their customers with overpriced DLC, keeping just about the same price for new used game, XBL/PS3+ and micro transactions. Whereas PC you have Steam sales or Direct 2 Drive that usually don’t abide that $10 manufacture costs and also have daily sales. But I’m assuming you’re a console user so I’ll let you enjoy your entertainment.

          fucking hell. all you PC guys have done is prove your elitist fags. All I said in my comment is that PC’s arn’t superior in every way because to keep up to date it costs alot more. And I get the shit flamed out of me by angry fanboys who are probably pissed off that they had to work so hard to pay for their shitty fucking computer when they could have gotten a console that runs things only slightly worse for under half the price. I dont care what any PC fags yell across the internet to me, I have a decent computer and could run BF3 no problem, but I dont want to because the whole PC community is either hackers, or elitist arseholes who send me hate every time I die. Not saying consoles are perfect, far from it but its my choice where I play my game. get over it.

        I built my PC in 2005/6, and upgraded the graphics card in 2008. Then and this year.. this week in fact, I am upgrading Motherboard/Memory/CPU so I wil be able to play BF3 with pretty good visuals and performance..

        I can see these new parts lasting me at least 4 years into the future “not that my current hardware is slow or dying, I consider Battlefield 3 a game worth upgrading for, the same I thought BF2 was a game worth upgrading for” to think one needs to upgrade your PC every single year would be doing nothing more than proving your inability to understand what a Gaming Machine consists of and how much more powerful one is when compared to the cuirrent generation of consoles.

        Of course some people do upgrade every year, and in some cases every few months, they are enthusiasts and they enjoy buying PC hardware and trying it out new things and being at the very cutting edge of technology.

        I starting gaming in the 80′s// how about you?

          Seriously? All I was saying is that it would be too bad that they would have to upgrade every year because if they wanted to be at the tip top of tech for that computer, it would be a hassle to open that thing up, and replace the processor or GPU, CPU, etc., and I get called ignorant because of that? Geez kids, grow up.

          Have fun spending around $300 -$500 every 2-3 years updating a PC, nerds. I’ll be playing Xbox where I don’t have to type in someone’s IP Address just to talk to one group of people all the time, when I can just join a party and automatically connects and I can speak instantly, and where games are OPTIMIZED to play on that specific console. Take a look at BC2 for instance… The graphics are no different except for the 60 FPS and the so called “Higher Resolution” that PC’s give. *which is a crock of shit because I have an 26″ LED Visio Razor that puts out 1080i, so you can suck on that one.* Waste your time and money, while the majority is the console market, in which games will always be optimized to the max for consoles, and the minority being PC’s because you have to optimize your system just to play the game. Dislike me because you know you are wrong. I’m done here, I will not read anymore comments posted below this one, unless it is one of my friends on here *Elite, plum, Maxbox, avalanche, etc…* agreeing with me. Your argument, from here on, is INVALID. Have a nice life. :)

          *on a side note that I forgot to mention* Yes PC’s are more powerful, but games aren’t OPTIMIZED for the PC, they optimize for the consoles because markets know thats where the money is, PC is the minority because you have to OPTIMIZE your PC in order to play the games. You see the reversal right? Just checkin’. :)

          Um, the thing is, that there is only one type of Xbox 360 or PS3. So it’s easy to optimize a game for a specific console. But there are thousands of different computers out there (PCs, I don’t know about this in MACs.)
          so if you optimize a game for one PC, some computers won’t even run it due to all kinds of hardware and software errors. So I think DICE is at this point just making sure that BF3 WORKS with every PC. The optimizing paths are coming after the release.

          @ϟKRI||ƩX
          Dismiss all you want but you failed to realize that your beloved console is outdated, severely. I have both an Xbox & PC and quality of games/atmosphere is bland and childish on consoles, you know it’s bad enough when the Executive Producer Patrick Bach @ DICE replies to a question “Do you feel the consoles are holding PC games back?” saying “Yes, absolutely…”
          http://www.geforce.com/News/articles/battlefield3-interview

          You talk about wasting time, money and life revolving around an issue that deals with games & computers/consoles, games in themselves are viewed as wasteful to society. I could care less what people view my (and many others) form of entertainment/hobby because I work for my belongings, not a dependent leech of loved ones. It wasn’t until lately that I ignored your comments but some things you say about PC/hardware/comparisons etc. are totally idiotic, discrediting the hard work that some people put into their hobbies. Calling others “troll” and “grow up” is the most pathetic excuse for the lack of intelligence to respond to a statement, you hardly contribute to posts without bashing one side of ideals. Instead you feed rants such as this one knowing deep down that you’re the wrong one and is childish (16-18yr, don’t bother telling me how old you are because this is the internet not high school).

          I’m not hating, I’m stating the truth, and you just can’t handle it. It’s ok that you over pay for shit that you don’t need, that’s your choice because you can afford it. Not everyone else can. And i’m not hating on the PC community, i’m just trying to let people who don’t know anything about computers or consoles like you or looming debt chrisis know that you are wrong, which is why I have so many dislikes, because people now days can’t accept the fact that they are wrong, THAT is called ignorance. I’m sorry that you can’t take it like a man and be mature about the situation and agree with me. Have fun playing on your PC, because when the new consoles come out, they will match the performance of next generation PC’s, just like they did back then, and PC will be obsolete once more, and all you little PC kids will ne’er brag about your specs until the new Xbox’s and PS’s get older… It’s a cycle that you cannot stop, it’s just the way it is.

          @ThexDLolNoob

          There are actually two types of each consoles. The PS3 and then the PS3 Slim, The Xbox 360 and then the Xbox 360 slim.

          The Old Xbox didn’t have a touch to open/turn on interface like the Old PS3 did. However, the New Xbox HAS a touch interface as the New PS3 does not have one. The Hardware is the exact same, (except for some minor upgrades like combining the GPU and the CPU on the new Xbox and updating the SPU’s on the new PS3), but the hardware is just newer.

        Silly you, you almost got away, forget what post my comments were on?
        Wii-U thread isn’t where we last left off :(
        http://bf3blog.com/2011/08/battlefield-3-not-coming-to-wii-u-until-2013/#comment-12909

        You get so many dislikes on this website because you lurk threads and spout idiocy, from your hardware opinions on how things “work” you know nothing more than 5mins of Wikipedia googling. Still thinking your correct by getting your go-supporters on a Wii-U thread? I obviously read the article if I linked it. Raising the bar for what, graphical eye-candy and animation only makes up a quarter of immersion, sound being the other 1/4 and gameplay immersion makes up for half (MP elements such as teamwork and communication). I’ve responded to all your replies accordingly yet you fail to see the moral or the truth, instead you frantically dismiss such accusations. Reading & comprehension was never your strong skill in school huh? I hate using the terminology “troll” mainly because it’s so widely misunderstood and has become an instrument to deny intellectual exchange for laziest but… I would say that you’re either a very patient troll or a typical teen shit-head that has plagued every website.

        TL;DR version: You’re a useless non-contributing reader of BF3 blog and it’s rather sad that you made some reply in frustration reflects upon the BF community. The BF community never really had this notion of being better until of other genres or platform until minors with conflicting ideas actively comparing this to that.

        Oh btw mentioning or boasting about a 1080i (aka 540p/non-HD)monitor isn’t something worth writing about, it makes you look stupid. “Lulz 1080i is better than 720p….”

      Well, if you are smart and buy a year code for Xbox live *which is smart unless you want to pay $10 every month* other than that it doesn’t cost anyhting to play online, unless a game requires that you buy and online pass, that allows you to play past a certain rank *they do this because if you buy a used game that was made by DICE, DICE doesn’t get profit from that used game, so they put a $10 price for an online pass so they get some revenue, which is fair imo.* anyways, it costs $50 a year if you want to play online, but you are paying for a better service, considering that PSN kinda sucks because its free.

        1 year= 60$
        3 months= 25$
        1 month= 10$

        Hope it helps
