These are the Min. Specs but the rig needed to run this game on Maxed out settings will need to be a beast.

DirectX10?? DirectX10 is worse then DirectX11 and is widely unused. It is also a power hog. Why didn't they do DX11??

I have played, or tried to play the game but I have Windows XP and the game barely supports DX 9. It is a buggy mess at present and should never have been released in this state. I know "IL-2 Sturmovik" had problems in 2001, but lessons are there to be learned not repeated.

Well am running on the new rig, and while the fps drops markely over land and cities (London is a slideshow), the game is running silky smooth maxed-out, and with a beta patch already in testing (loads of new content, some unwelcome) it looks to improve. Still, it's a fairly basic Sim, with an engine not much improved over the Daidalos Team's 4.09 Patch for "IL-2: 1946".
