Oooooo, that game will be badass. I heard it's full 64 bits and has multi core support. This is a pure test for modern systems. Wow, that is some budget system. The specs you posted will play UT2007, but I like to have a better gaming experience myself by beefing up the video card, CPU, RAM.

*Fact: Microsoft Window's Blue Screen of Death vs Computerforums.org's White Screen of Death. Which is worse?
