  1. Nope. In fact your rig is pretty outdated. Make sure you get 4 gigs of ram and 2 7800 GTX 512s and MAYBE you'll get to play with 30 FPS...
  2. Seriously, if you can't play it at those settings, I'm gonna have to jump off a bridge.
  3. well the game looks graphically intense, just wanted to know if my rig could handle the highest settings minus AA.

    What you have there, sir, is a paperweight. Throw it away and get a proper system. I'll take that heap of junk off your hand and you can have my, er, calculator. Deal?
  7. Just send me the hardware and I’ll test it for you (don’t want you to spend 40-50$ on a game you cannot play on your rig) :tongue: . You can get a Dell instead and they are good for p0rn too.

    Seriously though you should be fine.
  8. Not that this answers your question but I have an ATI x1900xtx and I play the game at 1680x1050 with everything maxed. Draw distance, textures, shadows, character and object fades, even shadows on grass. Great framerate, even with over a half dozen npcs on screen. I haven't even bothered to OC the card because it would be pointless.

    I can get that with beyond maxed settings, with x6AA, but otherwise the same as that, but with a FAR lesser system:Athlon64 2800+ (OC'ed from 1.8GHz to 2.0GHz)
    512MB 444MHz RAM @3-3-3-8
    Radeon X800XT AGP 256MBHowever, if you're uncertain, add me, too, along with the list of others who would gladly test your system for you.
  10. My rig is an X2 3800+, bumped to 2.2 ghz, which more than meets the cpus requirements. I haven't upgraded my video card in awhile, though, so I'm using a 6600 GT, slightly less than the "recommended" hardware but well above the minimum requirements.
    The game setup utility recommended the "medium" graphics level, so I let it install to the defaults.
    So I'm not at maximum resolution and I don't have all the eye-candy elements turned on.
    Game still looks great, it flows smoothly without any hiccups and it's been a lot of fun to play.
    So, in short, the game will still look incredible if you run it at the medium settings. But if you want to run at the max (1280 x 1024, anti-aliasing on, full shadows, full details, etc.), you probably need to have a cpu running at 2.4 ghz (AMD) or 3.4 for Intel and a $500 - $600 video card (X1900, 7900 GT).
    I'm getting by quite fine with a 6600 GT right now, but I'm going to upgrade later this year ... not so much for the resolution, but so I won't be slowed down when I install the mods that other people, more talented than I am, are now working on (better heads, improved bodies, more people added to the game, more monsters and critters, etc.).
