I was able to squeak by with my old system for Oblivion: 3Ghz P4, 1 Gb RAM, ATI 9600 XT, etc. Played on lower-mid settings with shadows off, etc. and it played pretty well. However, NWN2 has higher system requirements and will probably look like a$$ on low settings (not much better than NWN1). So, I don't want to ruin the experience by not playing with a decent PC. I'm thinking I can get by with a vid card upgrade (the new x1650 xt that just came out), and another Gb of RAM. That should at least get me to where I can play at mid-level settings on, so it'll have some of the "next-gen" polish with lighting, etc.
Though it might be sacrilege to state so on these boards, I have to say that FFXII is looking pretty appealing right now as well, and I know that it will run well on my PS2.
