It also said that you only need a GeForce 3.. however, those screenshots were running on something high end (assuming it's running on a consumer level PC). The GeForce 3 is crippled by the use of Anti-aliasing (as used in all screens I've seen), so you'll want something higher end to produce screens like they've shown.

<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR> does this mean they're not going to use actors? <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>I get the impression that they're going to use motion capture to make digital animations using live actors, much like Gollum in the LOTR films. Should be interesting to see, really. Maybe they'll look something like our Uru avatars, but with much more naturalistic behaviors. When you think about it, this makes a lot of sense if they're going to stay with realtime 3D and still have recognizable in-game characters.

Note that early in Uru, we see a hologram of Yeesha; she walks around the room, and we can turn to watch, or even follow her. They can't do that with a live actor, but motion-capture CGI would make it possible.
