And this comment is to Bioware Developers/EA.

The game box has this information regarding requirements:

MINIMUM: CPU: AMD Athlon 64 X2/Dual Core 4000+ or better / Intel Core 2 Duo Processor 2.0GHz or better * OS: Windows XP with 1.5GB RAM or higher / Windows Vista/7 with 2GB RAM or higher ... * Video: ATI X1800 or better / NVIDIA 7800 or better / Intel 4100 or better / 256MB minimum video RAM / Shader 3.0 or better...

RECOMMENDED: CPU: AMD Phenom 2 X4 Quad Core 2.5GHz or better / Intel Core 2 Quad Processor 2.4 GHz or better * OS: WIndows 7 64bit SP1 with 4GB or higher * VIDEO: ATI/AMD Radeon HD 4850 or better / NVIDIA GeForce GTX 280 or better / 512 MB minimum video RAM / Shader 3.0 or better.

Did you actually tested that game on those minimum settings???? My desktop is a mix of minimum/recommended settings and with patch 1.4 is crashing every hour or so.

My system (the one crashing an hour or so since 1.4)
CPU: 2.4 GHz Intel Core Duo (not quad, but in GHz in the recommended, so kind of a mix).
RAM: 4GB RAM (above both the bottom minimum and recommended minimum)
Video: ATI Radeon HD 6850 with 1 GB RAM /w Shader 4.0. Above recommended by a mile. Is not the top of the line, but until recently a nice mid card, and definitely is not crap.
OS: Windows 7 32-bit. No need to go 64-bit since system has 4GB, and 64-bit OS has a larger memory/disk footprint due to having both 64-bit and 32-bit libraries and components.
