For sure these requirements are not accurate, but if optimization is good, do you think I could get away with no aa, lower resolution low settings with around 25 fps ?

for gaming, 6 gb ram are enough! but i don't recommend 8 gb in quad channel! 2 gb ddr3 stick is not cheaper of 4 gb ddr3 stick!if you wanna upgrade your ram, get a dual channel 8 gb (4x2)! ;)

Man, ubersampling is too demanding for your gpu. with ubersampling on, you will get many fps drops! so the game will be unplayable. you will be able to run it on max settings with ubersampling off! :)

AFAIK, AA is extremely demanding and Ubersampling (if they still have that). A friend also told me that shadows and textures are other factors.Not sure if true.

Optimized means how the developers code the game so that we as PC-gamers can run it smoothly on low-performance rigs to high-performance rigs. So, if the developers optimize this game well, you should be able to run on ultra settings. The game isn't released yet so i can't give you any specific details regarding individual settings. What I can tell you is to go easy on the AA for higher frame-rates though ;)

Thanks! I've never demanded anything over 30 or 40 fps (I'm used to it) Do you think I can push ultra with both AA and ubersampling off with 30 or 40 fps?

absolutely YES my friend! maybe your cpu is not a beast, but your gpu is perfect at 1366*768!!! at your res, you can go ultra settings, but with AA and ubersampling off. i am sure you will keep 45+ fps!
