Maybe someone should re-evaluate what is considered "minimum." What's listed above isn't going to run the game in any playable fashion. Yes it'll start and you'll see the pretty Vanguard splash screen, but really, is it going to be playable?
I just think it's misleading to say the least. The minimums should yeild an experience that someone, at least one person in the world, might consider enjoyable...or, for lack of a more specific term, "playable."
Just my 2 cents...I'm upgrading tomorrow from a p4m 1.7ghz, 1gb ram, and 6800go 256mb....it's a slide show of a game if there's more than a few trees around.
