Default Wanting to play Guitar Hero III...

I am thinking about getting GHIII for PC. The only thing is, it's requirements ask for NVIDIA GEFORCE 7600 and above ("supported chipsets").

I've only got a 6800GS. In a few days I'll have two in SLI. Will this not work? Are the graphics cards simply not supported, or just not powerful enough?

Cheers.

i can run it fine on a 6800GT. two in SLI would be more than enough to run it. I just had to turn down the settings a little bit and it runs fine.

Yeah, but the fact they have the requirements so high, showed they didn't really care about porting it over from the consoles properly.

What big time graphics are really on GH3? I've seen it played many times and don't see anything that should require a 7600GT or better...

Yeah but still, its just circles going really quick, what can be so graphically intensive on that game?

The fact it was coded so inefficiently to play on a PC, from a console port.
