Hi alzughoul. I would suggest, to keep the requirements for Legend in mind as indication for what TR:AE will be like.

IT should work fine, im asuming the graphics should be the same.

ONLY if there will be a normal mode of the game. Those specifications are not enough for next generation games.

No, it's not unconditionally OK, raiderfun. ONLY if there will be a normal mode of the game. Those specifications are not enough for next generation games.

processor:intel Pentium 3 @ 1.1GHZ - <--- this is the minimum.
vga:nvidia fx 5200 128MB - this is below requirements for ANY DirectX9.0c game. For next generation games, a fast card with 512MB DDR3 VRAM is recommended. nVidia 7950GTX or better, ATI X1800XT or better.
sdram:256 <--- Just about enough to run WindowsXP itself. For running applications on top of that, more system RAM is required. For next generation games, 1 GB DDR2 is required.
motherboard : via <--- old chip for Pentium 3.
sound card : c-media <--- this is no soundcard, but an onboard AC'97 chip. Not recommended for games. For games, a real soundcard is recommended. Like: Creative X-Fi series, Audigy series.

All in all, this is a very outdated PC, not fit for DirectX9.0c games at all. Only for DirectX8.1 and down.

But since we were told TR:AE would not be a next gen game, l would have thought it would be OK. Tomb Raider 8 is the next, next gen game, AE is meant to be current gen graphics. Although l still do not see what the point is of "guessing" the requirments, best to just wait until the game comes out
