Magic eight ball will give you the best answers right now. Or in short: no idea.

My intentions are to build a new rig to replace my current one December/January-ish when AMD Phenom X2 and X4 are available and the new "Penryn" Core 2 Duos are out from Intel. Given that those two will probably dominate the CPU market for the following 12 months you can bet that they will be safe for good performance with Storm of War.

Your pc will need a Hemi.

Well, most modern IC engines have hemi or at least semi-hemi heads...and many Mopars 'in the day' were really semi-hemis anyway. Ford made lots of semi-hemis in the '60s and early '70s for instance

But I digress

For BoB, I think a PC will need the DX math co-processor, minimum

http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif Yeh that's what i'm doing already. Beginning to pinch gold loafs as i type, wait that's the coffee http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/34.gifhttp://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif Serriously, i think that's our best move right now is video,ram and a fast cpu..Those are going to be the most expensive upgrades, unless your building from scratch. Either way i'm gonna have to get another mobo to support duo core and the faster ram. Soundcards dont need to be so hightech for me. Just need the game to run fluid. But ya know us gamers, we want all the bells and whistles as time passes http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

BoB is a myth passed down from generation to generation of simmers.

But, if it were real, I'd imagine the requirement could be summed up in one word: More

I'd wager a decent dual-core rig with 2gb of fast RAM (relative to today's standards, but pc6400 minimum) and a next-gen VC in the X2800/8800GTS.

These rigs still have considerable untapped performance and that really shouldn't change too much in the next 6 months.

To summarize: No, the sky isn't falling.

Take good IL2 performer and multiplay its power by 2 that is PR=6000, 4GB fast RAM, a GF8800 class card and you set just fine...

Personally I would be surprised if a machine that will play IL2 on high settings would not play SOW on low settings.I doubt many in Russia have uber computers and I doubt Oleg wants to alienate his biggest market.

My current system is still in bits, but it ran FB fairly well. I fear that the old p4-2.8 and the 6800 ultra will be sucking hind tit when it comes to the eye candy of SoW-BoB. Too bad the bricks I ***t are not to the gold standard. I doubt the wife will have much pity on me. " Aw c'mon Honey...I quit hanging out in the bars 30 years ago. Don'tcha wanna keep me home?"
