I dont know a ton about computers, but i know the one i have is pretty good. It should be able to run the game no problem. But i keep reading in the cust. service forum that people are having major problems with framerate...likely due to the high traffic.

Just wondering if anyone sees me having any problems when i am finally able to log on...which will probably be tomorrow. Here are my specs.

Nvidia Geforce GTX 460
intel core 2.8 ghz proc.
8GB ram.

I don't forsee a problem with your specs as listed, though I could be wrong about the CPU.

Framerates have nothing to do with high traffic. Framerates have everything to do with cranking up the (wrong) video quality settings with substandard hardware.

If the CPU is an i5 or i7, you'll be fine. You won't run highest quality graphics at 60+ FPS, but if you crank down the graphics (bloom, shadows, and trees especially), you'll be fine.

If you turn the shadows down/off, you shouldn't have many, if any, problems.

I'm running the specs below and I get 110+ fps.

i5 2500k (no overclock)
4GB RAM
nVidia 560Ti

You should be fine. This program takes so little overhead i'm able to use Splashtop from work and run the game on my i-pad, streaming it from home.
