    Nice article from GameSpot if you have problems running CoH's might be worth a read... I can brag that I don't haha. ;)

    My Radeon 9600 ran the demo just fine. It looked better than DoW and ran better too. Hooray for new engines.

      Am I the only one looking at photos which appear identical and wondering why I wouldn't turn down the settings?

        Mouse-over to see the difference. I get by on my XPS laptop, but if I want to keep the fps up I need to switch off post effects. Which is a little disheartening.

          I got a 7800 gtx 256mb and i play with most of the stuff on high or ultra. I did have to drop a few things to get it to run smoother though. Damn those dx10 cards cant come out soon enough...

            I've got the game now, and I'm quite happy with how it runs on my 9800Pro at 1440x900. I was beginning to wonder when the 9800 Pro wasn't even on the list.

              Thats encouraging. I have a 9700 pro. I can accept the fact that ill probably have to play on the lowest settings, but the gameplay is far more important to me than eye candy.

                  I've a Athlon X2. Only problem I have is sound stuttering that's fixed by reloading a saved game. Installing AMD's Dual-CPU optimizer makes my mobo go crazy.

                    Hmm. I wanted to try the demo but was scared away when they said they recommended minimum card was a 6600GT and I have a 6600. Guess I'll have to redownload the demo and give it a whirl.

                      Ah, gotcha!

                      The only interesting difference in ANY of the comparisons was the shadows vs no shadows. I can live without shadows if I must.

                      I was told that you can even play this thing on a GF3 card!

                        I seem to only have lag (and a lot of it) when there are many trees present. What would be the best setting to turn down?

                        I have a AMD64 3200+ and a 6800GT.

                        3) Support game play in a near-simulation environment. Where the focus of play would not be solely on doing what it takes to win, but doing so utilizing real-world combat strategy and tactics rather than leveraging exploits provided to players by the design of the game engine.

                            I agree. I rather have the game playable than jerky movement because the graphics are set way too high.

                              Hmm.. Redownloaded the sp demo and gave it a whirl through the training and the initial landing. Game runs fine on mostly low settings (whatever it autodetected from the performance test? AMD64 3000+/1.5GB/GF6600). Pretty fun. Not sure I wanna buy it cuz I have a feeling that it'll get shelved pretty quickly.
