My 3x480's may finally get a good workout!

With those specs, this better be one outstanding looking game and not just blurry console port assets.

A 480 AND GTX 285 recommended? That's insane! These are the highest physx requirements we have seen so far. Nvidia must have paid them off pretty good ;) So good that almost no one will be able to run physx on high if you need a freaking 285 who the hell uses that powerhouse for physx?

It's worth pointing out that the normal recommended specs are quite low... physx once again is a massive hit on performance for no real equal benefit.

Yeah, PC market is becoming some what of a scam with the way they time and rig everything. Each new generation locks out the previous in some way, which is clearly done with intent to force purhases. The way they use Cryostasis for example really highlighted this.

Maybe I'll put my 9800GTX physx in my rig again for this one but I'll probably wait for you guys to give me the thumbs up if its worth all the fuss.

i don't really care, since I can't have physX onna computer with an ATi card. I just hope game is good. Hell, if it's half as good as Mafia 1, I'll be happy.

Hmm.....those recommended settings = 10fps? Game can't be that well optimized :/

you simply can't win with some people

game has low specs, boohoo a new game doesn't push the PC to the max, damn port
game has higher specs, boo hoo a new game requires a bit more power must be coded bad.

I'm sure it will run better than Metro 2033 did for me so bring it on!
