Yes, I did a google search and I know what the official system parameters are. And, yes, I have read many other opinions but there seems to be a number of contradictions out there in internet space. Thus, I come here to TS to ask, will my socket 939 PC run this game decently? I have read so many conflicting reports about what system specs work or don't work I'd like to hear directly from people who actually play(ed) the game. Here's my hardware (again, this is a socket 939): Athlon 3800+ dual core (2.0 GHz) -- I realize this might be a cause for bottlenecking XP Pro w/SP2 2 Gigs of OCZ Platinum PC3200 RAM 7200 SATA hardrive 9600GT 512 mb DDR3 video card * My LCD maximum resolution is 1280-x1024 which is where I like it anyway Thanks for the help.
