    PC version is going to have better graphics and 64 player multiplexer support (vs 24 players for console. You should totally try to get the PC version if your computer can handle it.

    I have an I7 920, 4850X2, 6 gigs of ram, etc. I built this in 2009. Do you think this will be good enough or do I need to make improvements?

    I think I want to do a nice triple monitor setup to play this game, also I want to try to play it with those new razor hydras cause it looks fun. What do you think?

    Your system will be able to handle it fine,Although id recommend upgrading the graphics card if you can afford it for some DX11.

    Oh okay, which card do you suggest, one of those eyefinity ones so I can do the triple monitor easier? Also what do you think of the razor hydras?

    First your PSU model/specs and Brand and then a suggestion on GPU,although with your current config I would say no need to get a GPU now you can easily wait till the next GPU series. :D

    IMHO the 4950x2 probably still kicks the crap out of games. DX11 is nice to have but Not worth the upgrade if you have a GPU like that.

    I agree completely, there is absolutely no reason to upgrade anything. If it turns out the game needs higher specs, then go for it, but I wouldn't get it now, I would wait, firstly to be certain you actually need it, and secondly because prices will have probably dropped by that time

    absolutely pointless :)

    You would be at a huge disadvantage in games. It may add to immersion, but try playing against people with a mouse and keyboard when you have a wiimote. That is what it would be like. You won't be able to turn as fast, you won't be able to aim as precisely, buttons won't feel as natural as wasd and mouse does. you are at a disadvantage if you play FPS games on PC with a gamepad, that controller would make it a hell of a lot worse than that

    The only gadget I would ever recommend for FPS gaming is TrackIR, though it is only any use if they implement it into the game, and if you are able to move your FOV independent to your movement. Basically, if you can turn your head but not your body in game, it would be worth it

    Not worth it. You will be at a disadvantage in PC gaming against the mouse and keyboard.

    EDIT: Aastii beat me to it :(

    Those specs are not official,they are based on his personal experience with computers.
    He has written Predicted Specs.

    But anyways his recommended specs are way to high.

    Is that right 60fps at 1280x720 and around 30fps at 1920x1080p so if i set my res lower i get better fps.:)

    Yeah, i figured as much, but there a decent guideline to follow for now. And yea, i agree, the recommended are way to high to be right. Luckily, i fall somewhere in between, so i should be good to go. :good:
