    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?
