There's a big problem with PC specs, in that CPU speed doesn't mean shit anymore, and hasn't for a freaking long time.

I think that spec is related to a way older CPU than yours, since it's referring to things like Geforce 7600s in the same blurb.

I tend to check the GPU - does it list one at least a generation behind mine? If so, I'm fine.

Jayve, I'm sure your laptop will have no issues with this.

You for instance scraped and managed to build a "fuckin' awesome" gaming rig for I assume a very nice price. You don't price out gaming laptops when your hurting
This has been my main gaming rig since last summer... Paid $450 when it came out.

I've had no troubles with games as long as I turn off AA, set shadows to low and disable post processing. I also installed a Momentus XT hybrid drive and increased the memory to 8GB.

One more day god damnit. I am so tempted to take tomorrow off of work, and just play Xenoblade Chronicles and Grimrock all day. That would be so worth it.

This was the game that pushed me over the edge to buy a new pc so I HAD to preorder from the devs directly. Will be playing with gusto this weekend.

Pretty sure from the sense of the forums I've seen that the release will be later in the day tomorrow to sync up with Steam. Tomorrow's not the day to take off for this...

Well like I said there's Xenoblade Chronicles in the meantime....

But alas I'll suffer at work instead!
