It shouldn't be that heavy. The only ones that would way more, would probably be the case, power supply, and hard drive.


edit: Off topic but....hey, midn1gh7...You might want to make your sig smaller. I think it's too big. The rule is 8 lines of text bigger than size 1, with a graphic. You have 10.

I don't personally think you will be able to max out those games without a GTX. Even then, it might be a little short depending on what res you are going to be playing at. Time will tell though, the games aren't out yet and nobody knows how either of them will run.

You don't need 4GB of RAM to get maximum performance. 2GB is more than enough as we've said, time and time again.

2GB is good enough for a daily computing or gaming system. 4GB is only required when you're doing some video editing or photoshop or whatever.
