    700MHz
    128MB RAM
    32MB Direct3D Card
    500MB hard disk space
    Win98/ME/2K/XP
    DirectX 8.1

    Did I miss something or is this a really high spec?

    I have a good PC, just not a good video card. Was good at the time but it seems games double in the amount of video MBs needed in the last 8 months.

    It's a non official awnser from Microsoft about the speculations about the PS3. It's from an intern at the X-Box dev team. If you look at the numbers, it's just what they dream about. The most numbers are just a bit higher then PS3 rumors that were around lately. Call it hot air or maybe marketing.

    My current computer is a pII 550 mhz with a integrated video, and a voodoo5 if I hold my mouth just right (it fights with the integrated video and is a pain to make it work in win2k)

    on the other hand...my new athalon xp 1.67 ghz + 256 meg DDR ram + geforce 4 ti 4400 (128 meg ddr) is scheduled to be delivered sometime this week...muahahahaha

    Mine's like a rock...

    Wow. If I compare my computer to yours it would be like Mine:Yours :: Rock:A ray of light

    You people should feel ashamed! I'm only running P1 200 MHz, and only have 2MB of video ram! Picking on us sucky computers like that.

    Thats not as bad as i was expecting. when i heard the graphics would be enhanced on pc version i feared the worst. i dont quite meet the video card requirements(i have a laptop as well) but im gonna give it a shot anyway. i got ghost recon to be mostly playable, so i have high hopes for this game.
