Graphic detail and screen resolution will most likely need to be turned down to get a smooth frame rate. But, this is all just speculation...

I won't be getting the game until I upgrade.

* 1024MB (1GB) RAM
* ATi Radeon 9800pro, AGP with 256MB video RAM
That doesn't look too scary. Besides, I really don't think I need every bell and whistle, it'd just be nice to get decent framerates on something that doesn't look rediculously pixelated. Moderation.

Hmm... no offense or anything, but can I ask for some second opinions. It just seems like a pretty important basic part and I don't want to screw it up.
Also, if you wouldn't mind, could I ask you to explain why it is that that would be your personal choice?

Their LanParty NF4 UT boards are pretty much 2nd to none in alot of departments, most noticeable overclocking. Most reviews heap praise on them, including the TR one that summarizes: "Those are minor quibbles, though, in the big picture. DFI has put together an excellent board in the NF4 Ultra-D, proving that paying attention to the little things can really make a board unique. If you're looking for an enthusiast-oriented nForce4 Ultra, the NF4 Ultra-D should be on your list, probably at the top."
