My computer is too old, I think my graphics card is a gforce 7900 256MB. All we have is a Wii too. Guns and Brewing equip are higher on the list for the holidays too. Oh well, all the hype really makes the game look pretty cool.

Looking forward to slaying some motha****ing dragons.
Well played.

I've been playing a lot of BF3 lately and my girlfriend has not stopped complaining. Maybe I should have done the same...

Playing on minimum settings is still great, a little more jagged but the graphics are still decent and the gameplay is what makes it fun. I think you'll be fine to play on minimum settings with a decent framerate.

Yeah, lately i've only really been playing my xbox when she's at work on the weekends or later at night after she's passed out.

After reading so much about this game, i've gotten the feeling that that's just not going to be enough, hahaha. So i'm hoping this little peace offering will get me a bit more gaming time with out much resistance from her.

It looks like Oblivion on my laptop (in terms of the graphics). I agree the game play makes it worth it to fight through the lag if you're a big fan. I've been playing TES games since Arena so I try not to assume other people might be willing to put up with fighting a machine that can only play the game on the lowest possible settings.

It's an ATI Radeon HD 4670, whatever that means.

I'll probably wait a while before buying this one, maybe see if I can borrow a copy to check whether it runs well or not. I don't care if the graphics look like Morrowind, I just don't want to deal with constant lagging.
