Recommended Specs:

Of course the score will be lower. Why would it be higher than 06? It's suppose to bring today's current hardware, to it's knees. Just like what 06 did before.

I guess so. Since DX10 is a requirement too.

They should release an XP version.

wait... so you can't run the dx9 cards here?

so people with the x1950xt (or any other dx9 card) can't run 3dmark08? so that means the people with 8600gt 's will have a score and the x1950's will have a 0 score like i do? oh thats real fair..
