I would reverse that order. Everyone today has 2GB+ in new computers and you will not get an fps increase from adding more. Be sure. The CPU is naturally important but the mid-range core 2 duo:s (like the E6850) pulls any game off without beeing the bottleneck. It's on the GPU where the magic happens - and thats where I would recommend you to put your hard earned dollars

OK - my recommendation for a gaming rig that runs any game fine today (and in the near future), without beeing super expensive:

2Gb+ memory. Add some if you use a 64 bit OS, I run a dual boot XP-32bit and Vista 64 Ultimate. I never run Vista 64 for gaming as the performance is worse on ALL games I have tried...

Intel Core 2 Duo E6850 CPU - Good value for money...

Nvidia 88xx Series graphics card. Today this card is the only one to buy. There are some new cards on the horizon that may be worth waiting for, the 8800 GT (G92) is a "budget" card that looks interesting...

Regards /Mazex

My own rig below (almost a year old now so don't take it as a recommendation - a year ago I would naturally have endorsed it, but not in the "budget" class):

Intel Core 2 Duo E6700 (@3.0Ghz - 1200Mhz FSB)
Asus Striker Extreme NForce680i SLI MB
Asus GeForce 8800GTX 768Mb
2 x 1Gb Corsair PC6400 XMS2 XTREME CAS4 @900Mhz 4-4-4-15 2,1 Volt
1 x RAPTOR 150GB + 2 x Raptor 74Gb (raid 0) + Hitatchi T7K500 320GB
Creative SB X-Fi Xtreme Gamer Fatal1ty Professional
Zalman CNPS9700 Cpu cooler
Antec TruePower Trio 650W
Antec P180B Chassis
Dual boot - Windows XP SP2+ and Vista64 Ultimate

Finally, BoB may arrive in 2009 so hardware recommendations for that game are hard to foresee

Good luck! /Mazex

Sorry if this has been asked before (I didn't see anything but I'm new ), is there any word on whether or not BOB will support multi-core CPU's?

Hi

As Oleg said long before.. be ready to change your hardware for BoB.. as we can expect roll out of BoB for 2008 (certainly late 200 it's a bit hard to preview what hardware will be the average for BOB.

think Dual Core will be supported.. DX10, but what about openGL... it's a mistery..

Recently a demo of Game PT Boat was only available for Vista

I also couldn`t wait any longer. My pc, I have here, is very slow, and I cannot play the newer games anymore. And as the release date of BOB is not known jet, maybe at the end of next year, I couldn`t wait any longer.
Got now a quadcore, 4 gig ram and the 8800GT(when it comes out).
Hopefully it will be enough for BoB, I wont´t change anything except the GraficCard.

Hi folks!

Here we begin to post development news of BoB.... some time, but not so rare... I hope once per 2-3 weeks or so .... and more close to beta - each week like in old good time with IL-2
you will know that we are far away from a beta...

Oleg said a long time ago that all "optimization" will be made.... so it is safe to assume that dual core (quad core ?) is in....

As far as DX10... when I asked Oleg this question earlier this year he said that BOB will be OPEN GL ans NOT DX10....

As for iL2 BOB will have a multitude of features that will be "turned on" as hardware becomes more powerfull....
