I figured since I just bit down hard on the leather for a hefty system (the current system is struggling) to run SWG, I wanted to get a consensus of what people plan on running with. The next monster will start off like this...

Motherboard : Asus P4G8X Deluxe
Processor : Intel Pentium 4 2.8 Ghz 512K Cache 533Mhz Fsb
Memory : 2x512MB DDR 333 Mhz PC2700 (1.02 Gb Total)
Video Card : Geforce FX5800 128 Mb AGP 8x Tv-Out
Sound Card : Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 2
Power Supply : 465W Dual Fan Power Supply
Case : 21 Inch Thermaltake 5000

I have my fingers crossed 'cause I want to squeeze as much out of my IG time as possible!:cool:

Might need to pump the RAM, but I think this is a good start...

What's your plans...???

Sometimes, Wraith...

But don'tcha love it?!?!

When the 'powers that be' (read: wife) say, "go", dude I'm gone...

Athlon XP 1800
256 PCI 2100
GeForce 3

I'm not sure on the MoBo, because I got it through "a guy who knows a guy." It's not the best machine anymore, but it's still nice. I've been thinking of upgrading for a while, but I hate to buy a new machine when I still have this good one.

Wow, DirtyWombat, that is a beasty machine! One thing I would like to say-- if you are planning on building that computer a good idea would be to invest in a nice monitor if you dont have one already. My friend and I both play Dungeon Siege at full graphics and it looks seriously about 4xs better on his nice Sony monitor (a 19" G420...about $400 :eek: ) Currently I have a 1.5ghz P4 with 256mb RAM and an older 64mb GeForce2 card but I am planning on upgrading to something similar to what DW is getting, just maybe with an ATI 9700 pro instead of the newest ones ;) . I'd say at least 512mb RAM with a GeForce4 or equivalent card and a good monitor and this game should run awesome. I'm excited! :D
