Really looking forward to getting my new computer and getting this game. :)

Planning on:

Athlon 64X2 4800
3 Gigs of RAM
nVidia Geforce 8800 GTS 640 MB.

Hopefully, won't run into any issues with this game or STALKER on high details.

Woah.  Hadn't really looked at or heard about Crysis. 

Damn, that looks like an awesome game.  Hopefully that rig can handle all the pretties.

Somone on the gamespot.com forums was saying that their ati 800 would not be able to run bioshock. This set off a small alarm for me because I own an 850xt. I know most people on those forums overhype the newest graphics cards and technology, thus undervalue the older stuff, but I need someone to tell me I'm good to go :-[ I cant imagine somthing I use to play hl2/css, oblivion, and bf2142 on high would be outdated so quickly,  ::) but as I said I need another person to put my fears to rest. :'(

Minimum for video card is DirectX 9.0c compliant card with 128MB RAM (NVIDIA 6600/ATI X1300 or better, excluding ATI X1550)

Looks like your out of luck.

Also I preordered the Special Edition today.

I'll try it out, but my PC, while competent, probably won't do this game justice.

Also, I don't have a 360. Hopefully the game is a timed-exclusive and will eventually come to the PS3, but that assumption is unknown right now.

Someone will have to explain to me how I wont even be able to PLAY the @%*# game because of my card.... I only got the darn thing about a year ago. How does it go from playing everything maxed in all my recent games to worthless in the span of almost no time... I was kind expecting not being able to play it on high, but god, completly blocked? My freaking intergreated graphics card on my last computer had a longer use cycle than my x850xt.... which aparently wont even boot the game?

On the latest 1up yours podcast, one of the guys talked about the game and said it's really freaking good and that it blows every other game out of the water, as far as game of the year go. Oh why did my 360 have to blow up a week and a half before this game comes out?  :'(

Dont they say that about every game about to come out, though? Its another graphically intense first-person game which is claiming a lot, so out of experience the best i'll expect from it is good atmosphere and a stock high-end adventure-shooter. No doubt it'll be entertaining to some degree, but I wouldnt expect anything groundbreaking.

...then again, we'll have to see just how close it is to good old System Shock. Big boots to fill.
