From what I've read in magazine's, it runs like crap on even the best systems.

EQ2 currently has some issues with the 6800 series thanks to Nvidia and SOE trying to get all the SM3.0 bugs out of it... Once these get ironed out it will be awsome.

When I first started beta and was using Dx9b it ran like a dream, once Dx9c released and we began testing it... performance hit hard... they still have many more tweaks to do... hopefully they will get it done within 3weeks since its launch is then...

Well... I tried to get a shot of the game at 1600x1200 with 4xAA/8xAF @ Extreme Settings but it was a no go. It would barely load... if at all. Computer just kept thinking, never gave me a chance to take the shot... 1024x768 res with the current settings ran choppy as hell aswell...

I believe them when they say it will be a long time till PC's can max out this game...
