Is this game going to support dual core cpus such as the Intel G3258 or G3220? I ask this because the minimum requirements are labeled as an i3 which is a dual core w/ hyper threading. If its going to require an i3 at minimum it means that the game is going to be following the suit of Dragon Age Inquisition and Farcry 4. I really hope 50% of the gaming market isn't going to be isolated here, I was really looking forward to this.

Lol, the Minimum system requirements are below the laptop that I use as a netflix streaming machine on my nightstand that was built in 2008 and runs at 185 F degrees struggling to cope with overheating issues. An i3 processor fits any of these: http://ark.intel.com/products/family/65503/3rd-Generation-Intel-Core-i3-Processors#@All and Pretty sure this will run on an AMD machine, which is what I have. 

 

4 gigs of Ram is Cheap: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&IsNodeId=1&N=100007611%20600006067 for 1 stick, $30, so $65 to get the Recommended RAM listed, $32 for the "Minimum"

 

A 1 gb graphics card is the "Recommended" one, which if that's truly and issue. I have two sitting in a box in my closet someone can have. 

This game isn't graphically intensive at all from the listing I am reading for system requirements. I wouldn't worry too much.

My computer is a proprietary small-form factor with a specially designed motherboard (including special motherboard mounts that fit *no* other board) and proprietary power supply (shaped specially to fit into the small form factor); I am incapable of upgrading beyond my Core 2 Duo 2.13 Ghz or my Radeon 6400 without buying an entirely new computer.

That is sad news. One of the reasons I got myself a large tower and put the parts in myself. I can fit any mobo, processor, power supply out there into my case. I've been down the road of getting pre-built PC's with special, unique parts in them before and raged when I couldn't replace them without buying a whole new computer. Your processor doesn't meet the minimum requirements. That's bad news man.

That's what you'd think, but I've seen a stream of somebody with my exact processor running the backer beta just fine with no problems at all. So I don't know what's going on.

Well I hope it runs for you. I'm no specialist on this stuff. I built my own system, but, had to take it to a shop to get it to run right. >.< So had help. It's looking like the developers setup this game to be able to run on a system that has parts which were designed and released about 6-8 years ago. Folks who haven't upgraded their computers in the last 6 years will possibly have issues I imagine.

Few month ago the minimum requirements were very very low (Pentium IV, etc.), now they are talking about i5 processor (on Mac)... This is a bad joke or a scam ! :banghead:

We need answers. I backed the game to play on my dualcore...

I bought the computer for 150 bucks in 2012; I really can't complain about the price, especially since the upgrades that it does have (it didn't come with a graphics card, and it originally had a 50 GB hard drive while it now has a 110G solid state and a 500 GB storage) were free, given to me by friends who had extra equipment lying around.

Nah, they are talking a Dual Core i3 2.5 ghz processor, 4 gigs of RAM, 1 gig Video card. Which, one can get off Newegg for about $250 for the three nowadays. Not an i5. Big difference.

I remember when BG1 came out, and I didn't meet the minimum.  My party was teleporting along the sword coast, and I had to pause more to ensure my health was ok.  It was painful, but I beat it.  I hope it runs for you all.  

That's what I did for BG2. It was a nightmare because I was also very bad. If the game runs like that, I'm gonna jump through the window.

Yeah alot of system requirements are a hit or miss. My crappy hp laptop can run games I have been told it would never be able to even start. And then hasn't been able to play games the I meet the recommended requirements for. Seriously I can play heavily moded skyrim but when I tried to play a slender game my laptop crashed :p

I don't know the reasons behind the changing of past expected requirement listings, but I'd agree with others that they are often a bit over-stated, in that many a bit below "minimum's" may still be able to run the game, just with low settings or resolutions and/or not the best fps numbers.

 

As usual, PC's just have too many variables, both in hardware/drivers and software that may affect things, to make "requirements" absolute, most of the time.
