I am totally stoked to finally get the game running. I bought it at launch knowing that I was pushing it to get the game running on my old rig. I thought I might have got away with it on all the lowest settings, but alas for any encounter involving more than the smallest amount of other ships brought the poor system to its knees.
After a long time saving up I finally got my new rig, and the game works a treat on the higher settings. May have gone overboard on the specs. But once I get the windows partition shrunk down and my OS of choice installed It'll be VM tastic.
Reading though some of the posts it seems that season 3 looks like its just the right time to be getting back.
