Default New computer requirements???????????????????????????????????

Now that ( apparently) we are closer to roll-out of BoB can anyone give us the PC requirements so that we can have purchased the right rig before we get the sim in our hot little hands...My PC which is 5 years old probably won't even run the titles & tracks let alone fly the game...Give us a break...let us be prepared...Pleeeeeeze?

Wait to upgrade then focus on 1. RAM followed by 2. CPU followed by 3. Video card (which doesn't matter near as much).

Release is expected in and around mid-winter (or possibly later)

Were I one to wager, I would bet perhaps Windows Vista 64 bit, Quad core Intel, crossfire video of 512mb, and maybe 3gb RAM. But then I just have described my dream machine for the next 5 years (OH- and it's a Mac with Bootcamp- personal choice )

Looking forward to BoB:SOW mightily though

Better strategy is to wait and see.

Sounds like prudent advice to me Sim. I had already upgraded once for IL-2. Like had been said at the other board, best to wait until we know And we won't know until we know.

Until then I'm happy with the performance of my dual core rig

It'll run just fine on what most of us have now.

The only reason to have a higher speced system is to run it at higher graphics settings.

I started playing IL2 FB on an Intel 866 processer with a G force 3 video card and 128 Mb of ram and it ran just fine at reduced settings.

It drives me nuts reading this 'all or nothing' cr@p all the time.

You want to upgrade your computer now...

Do it.

Everything will be just fine.

Oleg is not an idiot. He will build in scalability. The sky is not going to fall if you don't wait until the game is out and then drop six grand on a rig to play it.

Relax already, folks.

And what about Linux? Will the game support OpenGL? I really hope the devs will make the game support Linux natively. I've almost completely converted to Linux this summer and it's great! Vista was the turning point for me. IL2 works quite fine on Wine (a Windows emulator), but I really, really hope you devs can make it available for Linux.

A tip for the devs: Follow the trend as ID Software and Epic Games do!

http://www.kubuntu.com/
http:///www.ubuntu.com/

Edit: For me it's vital with Linux support, because otherwise I'll not buy the game.
