    Lets hope it runs well at the lower end of the spectrum, otherwise it will be GTA4 complaints all over again. That said my system will more than handle it and judging by the video previews i can't wait
    Insert signature here.

    Offically?

    Have not checked their website in a few weeks and I cannot get to my PC until later. Those specs are good news. I will buy this game the day it is released.

    Looking forward to the HEXUS article

    Re: Dragon Age system requirements

    Interesting that the recommended CPU is a Quad.

    Given the engine was designed for X360, PS3 and PC it's not really a surprise that they've multi-threaded it so the more cores the better. Intel Quads are also darned fast in general - be interesting to see how much difference there is between a phenom quad and triple.

    Graphics recommendations are very low however - they've done their homework on PCs out there, most of which have fast CPUs but poor graphics. Plenty of hard disk usage suggests to me a fair amount of pre-rendered stuff

    You know what is great about these multi platform games?
    My PC will be able to run it.

    Well spotted - it's behind an age gate. If you visit the dragon age forums:

    http://daforums.bioware.com/

    And verify your age then the link should work.

    The video card will probably affect your experience more. Even though you'll get the full game experience on the minimum required graphics cards, having a recommended or better video card will make a difference in the visual quality of the game. That said, it very much depends on what kind of gamer you are and how much attention you pay to graphics. I personally enjoyed the game just as much on my laptop playthrough using the lowest visual quality setting.
