    Still beats MW2's HDD requirement...

    Looks like the graphics won't work with a 2400 HD/3200 HD/4350 HD anymore, which is a shame since that was ATI's longest running low-budget recycled card... Well maybe the 5000 HD series will have a new 2400 HD to replace the current ones. It doesn't look like they were gonna reuse the 2400 for the 5000 series anyways.

    I'm so happy I would be able to run that without any problems (probably).
    My previous computer was soooo bad compared to what I have now.

    Honestly, before this summer I had 512 MB RAM [​IMG] and a Pentium 4 processor @ 2.6 GHz...
    (now I have 8 GB RAM and a intel i7 processor: 8 cores @ 2.67 GHz each.. [​IMG] )

    few things wrong with that statement

    there is no such thing as a core i7 octo-core (quad ony)
    and each core is not clocked at 2.67, its shared among all cores

    Its most likely overclocked and has HT. That's why he thinks he has 8 cores. [​IMG]

    Well actually... The i7 has 8 logic cores, and 4 CPU cores, (and a intel core 2 quad has 4 logic cores).
    so no I'm not saying the i7 is an oct-core... tho it has 8 cores (logic cores).
    and If they aren't clocked at that frequency each I've been misinformed with the texts saying: Core speed 2.67 Ghz.

    They usually don't post recommended specs until closer to release for some reason.

    I will still be getting this on the 360 but it is nice to see a game that will not need a high end rig to play.

    its good to keep the requirements low for most ppl to get the working
    thts why runescape (i know many ppl hate it) survey their gamers on their specs to optimize accordingly
    if u ask me, most ppl here think quad core is 4 cores and i7 is 8 cores which is with hyperthreading (not thinking about logic or else)
