I get regular mailings from Nvidia and in my latest e-mail i had a Link to test my Graphics Card (which is an Nvidia GeForce GT420) and the result says my Graphics card is not up to the recomended specifications for ME3.

What a skocker for me, so now i will have to wait until i get ME3 to see if the game will run (may do on low Quality!)if it will not run i have priced up a new card and it will cost me at least 200:00 to replace not Funny,i cannot believe that EA have made these changes to affect so many Gamers,we will just have to wait and see,again its no joke what EA have done,"RISKY"

Your 420 is fine, just don't expect to play it in super amazing settings.

As for future reference when buying Nvidia GPU's, go for the x60+ in the family.

Like 460, 470, 480 or 490... and so on. Anything below a x60 is cheaper remodels.

The changes don't really affect everyone like you think, they have to design the game to work on specific cards, a lot of people grab the x20 or x30-40 cards and think what a great deal.... but its not, and that isn't the publisher or developer's fault.

I've found that the specs don't mean a thing in the majority of cases. Up until recently I had been using a slightly overclocked 8800GTX, and had been doing so for the last 5 years, up until the point where it had a heart attack and I had to replace it.

Despite it becoming outdated and almost every game telling me that even the recommended settings were higher than what I had I was still running the latest games at high settings. More often than not I could set the options to the highest available without any noticeable performance issues.

Performance also works on the combination of your hardware, i.e. CPU, GPU, RAM, access speed of your hard disk, etc etc, and how they work together. A diagnostic tool will, more often than not, simply compare individual items to the recommended hardware it's been given without taking into account the entire system.

Use a specification as a guideline, not a rule, and you should be fine. Still, a well designed engine will still look good at lower graphical settings.

It's a nice excuse to upgrade to some new drool-worthy hardware though.

I just want to wait until i get the game,then i will be happy either way,also games i know like ME1 and ME2 i don't check out Demo's when i already have the previous 2 so that way i do not spoil the game for me. but thanks anyway for the Idea of trying the Demo.
