Huh, looks a little higher than when it was first announced, weren't the original projections around a 700 mhz CPU? Suprising they still support DX7 cards though...wonder how this game would run on a Voodoo 3

I usually take those kind of things with a grain of salt. The game isnt released yet.
As an example, I once saw that Morrowind was going to be released on PS2, there was a box shot an all, Cant remember if it was on amazon though.

I wasn't sure how well it would run on my computer, but after seeing that I'm pretty sure that I'll be able to run it on medium to high

Thoughs are the latest official specs released by Valve. They (Valve) also said that a Radeon 9600 would be the minimum requirement to play the game with everything turned on (DX9 mode).

cool. does that mean i would be able to get it to run on my old highly modified 500Mhz Celeron with PCI GF2. I used to get GTA3 running on it at low graphics with no lag.
