Yeah he clicked lucas' link, he has an i7-970 which is a socket 1366 CPU, and as I wrote there are tons of boards for socket 1366 that can handle 24 GB.

Thats correct. 24gb here. Ram is pretty cheap these days. 24gb cost me less than $200. My cpu can handle it, however the clock speed must be low. Still better to have 24gb of ddr3 ram with a lower clock speed than have 8gb on a higher speed.

Also, regarding steam install directories, you can move your games and still run them pretty much anywhere. There are youtube tutorials on how to do this. Its called symbolic shortcuts and they are established using the command prompt. Ill post a link later

If it's really that well optimized I'm impressed. I'm expecting to be running it on mid/high settings with my 4 y/o PC.

And that's a slow PC...

I did

And then the website promptly knocked me to the ground by causing my computer to bluescreen

No joke, I can't run Futuremark SystemInfo without my computer crashing hard.

I'd still take it with a spoon-full of grains of salt.

This one doesn't work nearly as good for my as SysRequirementsLab.

Too bad they don't have the game's requirements up yet though.

yeah system requirements tends to be a little faster, either way if you try their's out and you pass then you pass the offical recommended specs for the time being (until they adjust theirs) since they over estimated the requirements...

Lulz, I dig on tooting your own horn, mine didn't score quite as high. That doesn't bother me though, I'm just exited about my chance to be a even bigger Bethesda Hammer Legion Member.
