Minimum - hahaha, Oh sure.

Recommended - bwuh? The 7870 and 660 are 2gb cards.Do they even have 4gb versions to hit the 3gb recommendation?

They have 3gb 660 TI

Don't believe they have 3gb 7870s.

Finally a release where I fear my computer won't be up to par for "recommended" I knew it had to happen someday.

Larger battlefield 3 maps stress my computer to its limits already.

Wow... No wonder it looks just like Battlefield 3 still.

recommended win8 x64? Does the game engine support DX 11.2 or is my cynical nature suggesting MS paid for that recommendation.

I suspect your suspicions may be accurate. What the hell does this game need Windows 8 for?

For the inevitable Battlelog Metro app, I'm sure. Added functionality!

I'm pretty happy to see my rig will still hold its own on this, though I expected as much. Even though I haven't upgraded in a few years, system requirements have stalled recently.

Don't think this will be the reason I move my main rig to Win 8. But good to see I shouldnt have a problem running this. Hopefully I can run it well with all the bells and whistles turned on. I am guessing it should be the case, just a matter of if I can maintain 60-90 frames.

I cannot wait to see if that actually translates into higher benchmark results.

Me too. Only my 660 has 2 gig of RAM. Anyhoo, don't care much ATM. If I get this it'll be on the cheap!

This was my exact thought. Maybe their new engine is just the shit though.

Glad it's not too much of a bumper over BF3, I don't want my not-even-a-year-old gfx card to show its age just yet.

My impressions from the various videos (by which Ben claims devs are struggling to show) show me their new engine is the shit, so it is no surprise that has pretty high spec requirements.

Now, is someone going to tell me with a straight face that I can buy a "recommended system" for under $400? If so, then please include links.

Really? People still hate Windows 8? Please stop this. I would not go back to Windows 7 if you paid me. Both of my SSD RAID pc's use Windows 8 with no problems except for creative labs. Damn I hate soundblaster cards.

I use Windows 8 and haven't had any problems with games. I don't even use the Metro UI, I use Classic Shell so it looks like Windows 7.
