[Social] Dagget2: any idea yet on how old video cards can be and still run the new engine smoothly? IE, will the typical $20 PCI card from circa 2004 do ok?
[Social] Means: not 100% sure yet. They told me a 20$ card would probably be good enough

[Social] Pentaflake: If it runs AoC it runs AO maybe?
[Social] Nightingale: I sure hope so Very Happy
[Social] Means: AOC is heavy hardware...we won't be going anywhere near that
