A valiant attempt. However, I think your underestimating the laziness of most users.

And there is really nothing you can do to soothe stealth brag topics.

sucks,my pc pretty much has the minimum specs besides the processor(says 2.4 intel pentium 4 or equivalent and i gotta amd sempron 3400+ 2.00 ghz).but i dont know,i might get it anyway and try runnin it on low detail.but i dont know,ive had bad luck buying pc games lately

i guess i need to upgrade my pc,but its hard to do that when your broke and dont have the money

The sempron 3400+ is just a little slower than the Athlon 64 3200+, which is about the same as a P4 3.2GHz. So you're above minimum.

when i first saw the system req's i was happy cause I built my computer more then a year ago and I was shocked that this game is not very demanding at all.

It uses the same basic engine as Oblivion, right? My memory is, as far back as last year, most people didn't think the system requirements would be that much more than Oblivion. I don't find it surprising at all.
