Those are the most BS requirements i have ever seen in my entire life.

Nvidia 6800 ? oh comeon. That's taking the ****.


Sorry for the language, but it angers me so much when they just full on lie.

Makes me happy that I will bet getting at least one significant upgrade before the game hits.

I think that's the first time i've seen an 8800 recommended.
well maybe not for crysis and such. I never cared enough to look at what they recommend.

Oh well I don't mind the high recommendation. means it should at the very least look good. XD

o.O my GX2 could max a fully texture modded oblivion at 1920x1200 with great fps.
this 4870x2 blows my gx2 out of the water. Maxing crysis DX10 1920x1200.

I'm not worried about little ol' fallout, tons of shaders or not :/

I've looked through all the screencaps on the fallout page and it does look really good, but theres not even the tiniest indication it's going to be as hard to run as you're letting on.

Unless the official screencaps are all just really low quality, or it's a poorly optimized engine.

I'd say it's on par with oblivion graphics at least. It'll probbaly have some awesome lighting effects that oblivion doesn't have. But graphically it doesn't look like it has anything on crysis, so I don't know where it'll lose the performance.

I wish devellopers would start taking high resolution photos for a change.

From the looks of the gameplay videos I have seen so far all I can said is that I'm not surprised about the system requirements this game resemble very much Oblivion in terms of graphics, most likely is the same engine but optimized at the point where It doesn't require a high end PC and the graphics will look better than oblivion's and perform better also.
