Re: A bunch of *worrying* new Oblivion screens
Not even the developing system are that powerful. Most of the developers still have 9800Pro and processors in the 2.5-3GHz range. These figures comes straight from the horse mouth.
As for the specs of the PC used for the preview, it has been confirmed in the RPGCodex forums that the russians used a P4 3.4 GHz with 2GB of RAM and a 6800U 256MB
Talking about the MODs, it seems that the new mesh/face generation system will make "Better Bodies" much more diffiuclt to implement. Also, the purpose of modding is to add content, not to patch or remedy to the game shortcomings. If you see too much of the modders effort spent in patching the game rather than improving it, there's something wrong in the first place.
Pentium Dual E2180 (2GHz, 200MHz FSB)
Abit L95C (The one and only mATX with dual PCIe slots!) + 2x1 Geil Black Dragon PC6400
XFX 9600GSO 384MB
