Like to know...
are the needed PC specs listed for this game still current? Or is it better to go much higher. And how does AMD's processor hold up to the demands of the game. In my life money IS an object.
I assume here you are discussing IL2_1946 and NOT Cliffs of Dover.
The IL2_1946 box specifications are for the last "box" version of the game which is IL2_1946 version 4.07.
The features added in later patches (the current official patch version is 4.11 )are definitely more demanding and some unofficial mod add-ons can be exceptionally heavy on system resources. It is therefore better to up-spec from the IL2_1946 box specs.
However even 4.11 with mods does not require anything like the system you need for Cliffs of Dover, so providing you are sticking with IL2_1946 there is no need to go silly and buy a top end gaming rig.
