On another note, the if you use the "but if I wait there will be better and cheaper" reasoning to delay buying a PC, you will never buy one ;) remember that every day you don't own it is a day you're not enjoying it, which is also worth its $.

My reasoning is "If I wait they will be better and cheaper and I might have saved up at least SOME monye by then". So it's not a matter of putting it off, it's a matter of actually being able to afford it.

One thing that I really hate - Microsoft / Ubisoft.

AKA: Greedy, lazy, companies that bribe and false advertise and can't seem to get much right.

Well, as I have said before.... don't base any upgrade plans around us.  :thumbsup:

It's more about when to buy the game - before or after I upgrade. I mean there's no point buying the game before I can even play it, it would just tease me and I already made that mistake just this week with ArmA 2.

No, it supports both DX 9 and DX 10. We cuurently support ShaderModel 2 as well but the overall quality of the visuals is less than with SM 3

Thanks mate - I do plan on upgrading it eventually, was just wondering if I have to do it before I get this game or not. Thanks again.

The engine already uses DX10 so that is a moot point and we won't have DX 11 support unless it's added by Epic. We do not have the resources nor the desire to code and maintain our own rendering paths.

I'm not very tech-savvy, but does that mean that DX9 will NOT be supported. I have DX9 with Shader models 2 and I can't run ArmA 2 because of it (that game requires shader models 3 or higher).
