Technology MOVES ON!
For a 'gamer', those specifications are quite low actually. Even the recommend ones aren't exactly 'cutting edge'. :/
O/S: Windows 2000/XP
CPU: Pentium 4 2.4c (can be overclocked easily to 3.1GHz)
Graphics card: Radeon 9700 Pro (had it for a year now)
RAM: 512 MB (Dual Channel DDR PC 3500)
HDD: I've got 27GB free on this partition
100% DirectX 8.1 compatible Sound Card (Audigy 2 here)
IMPORTANT: DVD ROM Drive!!! (had one since January 2000)
My machine specs aren't exactly earth-shattering- people have much better out there...
"...and what folly is this - toasting an independent press? We are the tools and vassals of rich men behind the scenes. We are the jumping jacks, they pull the strings and we dance. Our talents, our possibilities and our lives are all the property of other men. We are intellectual prostitutes." - John Swinton (former Chief of Staff- NY Times).
