You're right adl, that minimum requirement is way over the top. For a minimum i'd say Pentium 1ghz or AMD equiv. 512mb's ddr, might get away with 256 and something like a geforce 2 or Radeon 8500, 40 gig drive, 17" monitor. I don't inderstand why you need a DVD player for a minimum system? Surround sound system?

Anyhow, nem, why not save yourself some money and go dual AMD? I've had zero problems running mine for 6 months now. I ccan highly recommend it.

its just im always upgrading the computer in drips and drabs, and now its just way too old and instead of upgrading, id like a totally new one, and if i get a new one which is pretty darn good, then i wouldnt have to upgrade for a while (which is gd for me cos i can just concentrate on everything else instead of having my computer crash on me all the time) so thats why the box specs are rather high
the totaly cost the the specs i chose is bout £2000 round about, i know thats pretty hefty, and i aint gunna buy a computer for that much, no way. im just tryin to get the cost down to £1500ish, thats an ok price for me
theres just a lot about hardware and compatibility that i dont understand, whichis the thing holding me back

However I´ve been working/studying about two years now on my HP Pavilion, and I was stunned at the minimum requirements you´re actually asking for here. I mean dude, did you know that just by inserting a GeForce TI4600, 3d performance in my computer would be boosted to 1335%, I mean, I certainly like to follow trends, see where everyone´s going and stuff .. but I do remember to keep my feet here, on Planet Earth.

-and lastly, I know this post might be a certainly almost offensive one, so I apologize to my fellow moderators, and I´ll try to avoid these for a while (at least till the next PP) -

**EDIT**: Looks like while I was fixing me something to drink the thread advanced a bit, so please ignore this post and keep on with conversation.
sorry for that minimum requirements thing... i meant;f
or a good performance... a minimum requirement would be:
