1. Hi everyone!
    This is a kind reminder to rate the builds you play or read. The ETA for the new rating system is not yet here, but if everyone active could rate 1 build per day, we can have everything rated in only 1 month! Don't feel bad about giving bad ratings with some constructive criticism :)
    Thanks in advance -- the MechSpecs team.

    Hi everybody,

    talked about this topic in the staff lounge. Vergere told me to post it to help our members with hardware questions. So ok, i do it now after collecting some more useful resources. Enjoy and additions are welcome!

    This thread is opened with the purpose to share info about system requirements for MWO to optimize gaming rigs for MWO. Since the game is still buggy, and there are hardly benchmark tests found in the internet, which focus on MWO, i list here some resources that i found for MWO and also datas, which might be useful for comparison, because they are from games based on the same CryEngine 3.

    So if you have an old pc, which barely can get playable fps in MWO, and you are ready to upgrade your machine but do not know where to start or you have a tight budget, check this thread first to get some hints.

    The info might be not up-to-date, some are 1-2 yrs old, but since MWO hasn't evolved greatly due to graphix/performance improvements these could still be used as a reference for upgrading ur gaming rig, find out bottlenecks or to simply share ur own benchmark datas with us all. Feel free to contribute.

    I have recently revised the guide and added additional information based on the current meta of the game which is using DX11
