and to be max settings at 1920×1080 requirements? Thats the one I want to see. I really don’t think a 560 or 6950 would handle it maxed with DX 11 features enabled. My GTX 570 SC will also be pushing it. Guess we wont really know until release……

Sigh, get here already!

specs:
Core i5 2500k @4.4ghz
16 GB Corsair Vengeance 1600
MSI P67A-GD65
EVGA GTX 570 SC

They give ghz for the min. but not the recommended? I’ve got the recommended all but the quad core. It’s an E8400 but it’s OC to 3.9ghz. I’m thinking I’ll be fine with that. Maybe not super aa but still should be pretty good. I can’t wait for the beta!

yeah pushing 4.2ghz right now on a i5 2500k cpu (could go to 4.6ghz), 560ti geforce, If I can’t max almost every single thing out then I might buy another 560 ti and sli the sucker, 560′s scale vary good im told.
