It's ironic how the only thing i'm missing from the recommended settings is the OS.

Wow those recommend specs are insane. Glad I upgraded a few months back.

WTF

Um how?

Quad cores have been available for years, 560ti/6950 are $220 cards, and RAM is as cheap as it's ever been. I got 8GB in May for $90, and just bought another 8GB a month ago for $60.

Those recommended are perfectly fine for a PC centric game in 2011.

Nice, first game in which I don't have the recommend specs (I have a oc'ed GTX460 1gb). Looking forward to testing it out.

Yeah I'll need a few upgrades to play this at a decent setting I bet hah. Hope there is a demo so I can test how low I have to set it.

What is the gap between what they have been showing at shows on PC (2 GTX 580s in SLI) and a GTX560 Ti? I am glad I meet the recommended settings, but what exactly does that give me? Time will tell.

Only missing on GPU. Guess I'll start overclocking my 460 up to 560 speeds. Definitely won't be upgrading till the new architecture cards hit.
