I totally agree yessum (apart from the console spiel) the original consumed all the ram you could shove into its gangster mouth. Now the mafia team have purported that 2GB ram is adequate for the "recommended settings" is absolutely preposterous !

Dual Gfx cards yeah right, i enjoy games but not to that extent where i have a dedicated Physx GTX card running in unison with a 260. Maybe this was expected instead of utilizing the abundant and cost effective system ram they want you to buy more expensive gfx cards ! What happened to working these 64bit i7 8 cores FFS come on you lazy gimps stop coding like a corporate whore, there's a depression don't they know ?

I'd say 2gb is recommended is fair obviously 3gb+ is probably what the recommended should be though, with 2gb being mid, 1.5gb low. Although when you think about it they have to optimize the engine for the consoles which have pathetic amounts of ram in comparison to most gamers PCs. The bottle neck in ram will be more in wanting high resolution textures on a gfx card without enough gpu ram.

Having loads of pc ram and a slow cpu/gfx card isn't going to benefit this game.

And I don't buy into the 2xgfx card crap, personaly 1x really good gfx/cpu is better, 2x is just mostly wasted (unless you all you do is gaming) due to the fact drivers are shit and they don't even benefit production apps in the slightest.

best to just have a quad cpu if you want "PHYSX & APEX ENHANCEMENTS "

what surprises me is that the min recommended PHYSX gfx card is NVIDIA 9800GTX, surely an 8series card should be adequate for physx with a 9series for gfx.
