I'm sure part of the beta is to determine what the minimum specs will be, but does anyone know a good starting point for folks getting ready to build.

Maybe the minimum specs for crysis 3?

Have they even posted theirs?

Yeah I know that broseph lol.
I'd just hate to build what I think is a moderately priced and powered system only to find out one component is just below the threshold.

They will be doing testing in closed beta with different stats I am guessing to determine the min system req.

If you own a desktop computer within the last 6 years and can do DX9... I don't see why you could play. But yes, close beta will likely be used to determine hardware requirements.

I hope we can remove a lot of options just to play even in laptops (as I do).

Yeah, the more accurate our specs are the better they can make the game!

Do you think the NDA they might have to sign would have a stipulation about not posting their opinions of system requirements before the devs have made an official announcement?

Well they have stated they are using the Crytek 3 engine, so aim for at least Crysis 2 specs. Personally I don't think I've looked at a games min requirements for at least a year and a half.

My laptop can run crysis 2 at max anyway. I wouldn't be too concerned about options such as that though. Most games which have come out in the last I-dont-know-how-many years have all had options to remove shadows, shaders, dull down textures and the like. I would honestly be shocked if they remove this, as it was built into Crysis 2 anyways, and their both built on the same core engine.
