Ok, so I dont generally use my PC much for gaming anymore (Old games, and GGPO mostly for the last few years), and I do in theory have the specs that break the "minnimum" required for DA:O.
However, I do remember how NWN chugged along far to hard for what it was, so my question is this:
I have 1.80 ghz Intel Core 2 duo CPU
2 gigs o RAM
ATI (I think the 9200-9600) 512 MB video card.
Can my PC run this game (I dont care if I have to turn down the graphics setting) smoothly?
I have this game on the PS3 already, but I wouldent mind having this game for both platforms, cause some times the wife claims the TV (Damn Dr. Phil...) and I wouldent mind being able to geek out on my Bioware goodness at a secondary station as it were.
If anyone has DA:O running with old busted specs like this, please let me know how it runs?
Windows Vista/Windows 7 Minimum Specifications OS: Windows Vista with SP1, Windows 7 CPU: Intel Core 2 Single (or equivalent) running at 1.6Ghz or greater AMD 64 (or equivalent) running at 2.0Ghz or greater RAM: 1.5 GB or more Video: ATI Radeon X1550 256MB or greater NVIDIA GeForce 7600 GT 256MB or greater DVD ROM (Physical copy) 20 GB HD space
Recommended Specifications CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4Ghz Processor or equivalent AMD Phenom II X2 Dual-Core 2.7 GHz or greater RAM: 2 GB (XP) or 3 GB (Windows Vista/Windows 7) Video: ATI 3850 512 MB or greater NVIDIA 8800GTS 512 MB or greater DVD ROM (Physical copy) 20 GB HD space
If your not at least half way between the two don't buy it. Also the game is much harder on PC then PS3 it wont be some button smashing good time like it currently is.
That isn't a downside at the least but warning you unless you enjoy a real challenge you should invest in another TV :)
Jesus, I know you guys are posting, my thread is falling like a rock, does anyone run DA:O with specs like mine? If so does it run smooth, NWN 2 is kinda choppy on my PC, I just want to avoid the same thing with this game, it has lower specs, but im not sure, just looking for some info.
silverthornne posted... I don't have specs like yours, but I can tell you that NWN 2 is a horribly optimized game and that your experience with it should have no relevance to your possible DA:O experience.

Good to know, was using it has a referance to the last Bioware game I ran on my current PC. (I could play it, but it was pretty choppy)
I played Mass Effect on my 360, so no PC attempt there.
