Battlefield 3 Graphic Comparison: With And Without Texture Packs

This post refers to

Great video showing the difference in Battlefield 3 with and without the texture packs installed. The difference is definitely noticeable and I am actually surprised how bad it looks without them installed.

For those of you not familiar with this. In order to get the best looking, most detailed graphics in Battlefield 3, you need enough hard drive space to install texture packs.
