Minimum System Requirements:
Windows XP/Vista
1GB System RAM (XP)/ 2GB System RAM (Vista)
2.4 Ghz Intel Pentium 4 or equivalent processor
Direct X 9.0c compliant video card with 256MB RAM (NVIDIA 6800 or better/ATI X850 or better)

Does the above minimum allow for decent graphics and performance without turning it into a slide show? I'm trying to gauge my system and whether an upgrade can be justified.

XP Home
2 GB RAM
64bit AMD 3500+
8800GT with 512 RAM

I've been debating upgrading to a dual core and second 8800GT.

Moliere, I think in the case of FO3, going dual core will be a big benefit.  FO3 is exactly the kind of game that could make use of multiple cores, especially since it's been developed for the 360 and PS3, both systems use multiple cores.

Not sure about the second video card though.

I'd like to know about this too. My specs are:

Vista Ultimate
2 GB RAM
64bit AMD 3500+
7900 GTX with 256 RAM

I have no upgrades planned.

I've found "minimum" specs accurate if you realize that you are going to have to run at lower than "gamer" resolutions (i.e. you will need to run at 1280 or 1024 or possibly lower) and if you realize that your framerates are going to be playable but noticeably slower than ideal.

Whether you consider that acceptable is another thing.

I tried to run Stalker and Oblivion at min settings most recently (Unmodded) and neither were playable due to frame rate issues.  Sure I could move around and stuff but combat was outta the question, which is a big part of both.  Mods helped both become somewhat playable but the new computer was key slywink

I think if Fallout 3 were being offered over Steam, my ability to avoid an impulse purchase by virtue of the gamestores being out of my way would be circumvented. Clearly, it is a good thing that Bethesda doesn't offer titles through Steam!

I think gold announcements these days are just pre-timed PR announcements and aren't necessarily indicative of when a title necessarily enters manufacturing.  Fallout 3's release date has been set for quite a long time and nothing was really going to change that on either end.

it might be able to since the minimum is a 6800, plus on a PC you can tweak your settings.

Very nice.

Kathode - do you know what copy protection you're using for Fallout 3 yet? I'm assuming you're keeping with that you used for Oblivion (a CD-check), but I don't think it's been fully 'confirmed' yet.

Actually, they do treat us like pirates. By making us not notice the copy protection, we get the same experience as the pirates do. slywink

They are not preloading, so you will have to dowload the whole game whenever it does get unlocked, which could mean you will face slow servers depending on what the demand is.  Also, the countdown clock on Steam for the game, though it says it's "approximate," counts down to 10AM PST/1 PM EST on Tuesday. 

In other words, unless you go to a retailer that is doing a midnight opening (a few Best Buys only as far as I've heard), you won't get it until Tuesday morning.

My Gamestop is doing a midnight launch. And I'm thinking about attending it for this game.
