    It is listed, the Recommended list's windows 7 and vista because of their DX10/DX11 support, which the game Does support.

    Still need something with enough power? The GTX260/4870 provide similar performance, perhaps you need that much even in DX9 mode for the recommended level. What I thought was funny was the minimum said 256MBs, 7600GS. The 6800GT has 256MBs, and is faster then the 7600GS. Why isn't the 6800GT the minimum card?

    Like you said, the 6800GT is faster than the 7600GS, therefore they support slower cards than the 6800GT.

    Oh good, I still don't have to upgrade my 3 1/2 year old system. Well, I would IF I wanted the recommended settings but I don't really care as long as it place decently. I'm waiting for games to come out that won't even run on my computer. THAT might be a year, at least.

    You're looking in the wrong place, i remember reading early on in this games development that they planned Direct X 10 support from the beginning.

    It's probably on Wikipedia or something..

    Fantastic. 280GTX cards are silly cheap at the moment. i planned on selling my 2x 280's in sli for a 570 card, did just that, then found that the 280's are dirt cheap. Dammit.

    What a really STUPID reply. There might be thousands of people looking for reasonable upgrades with regards to graphics cards and the 280 is a great buy.

    You obviously cared enough to reply.

    I don't know which is worse in hindering pc games. Sloppy console ports or DX9 compatibility two OS generations after XP? Enough already, Just Cause 2 didn't support DX9 and it did just fine.

    The 280 a great buy HAHAhahahaHAHAhhahAHa
    are you for real... nobody should buy this card... the 5770 is a faster card and cost about 100$ and more energy wise... you prefer nvidia, go with a gts 450 (if you cant afford the 460 768meg)

    5770 - £96.00 ish
    280 - £A lot less.
    450 - £Over £100

    280 = Faster card.


    You should have had a quick look before misleading people.
