Yeah I read that the other day....

I meet all of the requirements easily, but it's still an aging CPU. AMD64 X2 4600+ Should be enough, going by the "recommended" specs, but I still think it'll be the choke point. The game (like Crysis) looks like its going to really test even the very best of computers. Will be interesting to see.

Them mentioning DX10... does that mean it is coded for it?? This'll be the first time I've seen it in action if it is!!

I just ran it at 1920x1200 everything high or on where available on a 4600+ @ stock + 8800GTX @ 675/1000 + Vista 64. Framerate was low. Felt like <30 most of the time. I've give it another run with FRAPS on but I don't think the overlay works in DX10 mode ...

Just make sure your graphics card supports Shader Model 3. Mine only supports up to 2 so I won't be able to play

Looks awesome. Crashed my vid card driver on Vista 64 bit.

Q6600 and 8800GTX w/fact OC. Ran very very smooth until it crashed the vid card driver. Looking to make sure theres no later ones than what I have.
