PIII 800 MHz
256MB RAM
30GB Hard Drive
32MB NVIDIA geFORCE AGP Graphics Card

Is that a good enough system to run Obi-Wan, (you think?)

No. Obi-Wan will require at least two 800 MHz CPU's to run correctly.

ARE YOU SERIOUS?? If so, then LEC's crazy! Who has those computers?? 1 person out of a 1000 almost!

Of course I'm serious. Obi-Wan is actually not even being designed to run on x86 Windows-based systems. It will require at least a 667 MHz DEC Alpha 21264 with 512 MB of RAM running on UNIX to get any kind of decent framerate. Dual or quad CPU's preferred.

Then Obi-Wan will not make ANYmoney at all. Oh by the way, someone else just told me to punch you for telling me a non-true, non-sense fact. Visit http://205.229.72.73/html/Forum1/HTML/003670.html and see for yourself.

Qui-gon - Argath is joking.

He merely played along with his story because the machine specs you quoted are sufficient enough to be running Quake 3 Arena, Unreal Tournament, and Obi-Wan at the same time. A PIII 800mHz is sufficient enough for you! http://www.jediknight.net/mboard/smile.gif
(no offense, but you seemed to be extremely confused).

Oh, really? Cool! Cause I'm getting that computer. I just wanted to know if it was good enbough, and since it is, I will buy it.

Of course Argath was joking, in reality, only supercomputers can run ObiWan. It will be at least five years before any consumer pc will be able to handle the sheer power it takes to run.

Qui-Gon:

Does that GeForce Card have DDR RAM? If it doesn't, I'd get one that does - it gives a boost to performance.

Also, it occurs to me that the Athlon 850Mhz chip was released this month, which is faster than the Pentium III 800Mhz. Even if you don't want an Athlon machine, Intel are sure to respond quite soon and bring out an even better chip.

Personally, I'm holding off a little while myself from buying any new computer. Although I have a lowly Pentium 200Mhz with a Voodoo 1 card, most of the games I have will run at an acceptable frame rate - including Unreal Tournament and Wheel of Time. So I haven't got the highest texture settings, and not everything is switched on, but for now it will suffice until my dream machine becomes available.

Intel and AMD are supposedly going to release 1Ghz+ processors in the third quarter of this year - but judging by last year, I think they'll bring those release dates closer http://www.jediknight.net/mboard/smile.gif Maybe I can convince my wife to buy me one for my birthday (in June), then I can spend my savings on all of those wonderful games that will be coming out.

Now there's a thought...
