    PC Gamer gives it 94%
    It’s about as ready as it’s gonna get. According to the new PC Gamer (came in the mail today), they recommend 2GHz, 512MB RAM, good video card, etc etc. Of course for most of the effects turned on you’ll need around 3GHz and more RAM. They gave it a 94% too (they got an advanced copy of the finished game).

      If I took every PC in the office and put them all together, I might have one PC that could run this well.

      Actually, I’d have to take “beefy” (4 Xeon 2.4GHz processors, 2 gigs o’ RAM, massive RAID5 array webserver), reformat it, install Windows, then buy a $500 Radeon video card. Even that wouldn’t cut it because this system doesn’t have an AGP slot, only PCI (and I think there’s a PCI-X slot, but nobody makes video cards for that yet).

      I could afford the video card if I could find a way to dispose of all the old hardware. Anyone in the midwest US need a bunch of 486es, USR dialup racks, dead useless modems/routers/wireless cards, dead SCSI drives, and similarly obsolete hardware? :-)

        You can take the hardware to Office Depot and they’ll get it recycled for you (for free until Labor Day). Not sure that’ll help you with your video card problem, but at least you won’t have all that garbage lying about.
