Based on the GD predicted requirements I suspect ultra (it's an MMO, it needs to be accessible) with 60 FPS (based on your screen resolution).

That doesn't make any sense. Why would a company want to make more money? If you think more money doesn't make any sense, go to your boss and ask him yo lower your salary to the minimum you need

If you can, get one from the 9000 series, those are the best (e.g. Q9650). But choosing from those two I'd definately go for the Q6600. I have it myself and it's great, and take a look at http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-cpu-review-overclock,3106-5.html. The 8200 is a tier lower than the 6600...

I would love to get one from the Q9xxx series, but for me, my budget doesn't stretch that far at the moment. and i am going for the Q8200 because its a little cheaper and not much difference in specs and benchmarks

Problem here in the netherlands is availability. There are some core2 duo's, and everything above that is either not available or woefully overpriced (me paying €400 for a qx6800? No way)

This is going to be really massive but just the idea of reexploring the whole lands from previous games (morrowind, oblivion,skyrim) is just awful. They should have released this game first and the offline ones later lol.

youll be able to run it mate, your i5 should help seeing as games like this are very demanding on the ol`CPU.
and to the above comment made by linkster, whats wrong with notebook gaming :D? ive only ever had one desktop rig and that was years ago when the Geforce 8800 GTX was the top card on the market. ive had laptops ever since- Dell xps M1730 and now this beauty and it runs everything from metro 2033 to SWTOR.
trade off is limited screen size (my laptop is 17.3" 1920x 1090) but its good enough

I'd like co-op. The fact and flaw with this game is most quests in the game are SINGLE PLAYER. That means can't get help from others. Honestly co-op is enough... But nope... Gotta give those MMO players their fun... I hate MMO's >.&#60

They've licensed this engine: http://www.heroengine.com/ So I bet they'll be using that. They also acquired the rights for a Fallout MMO, so who's to say it's gonna be Elder Scrolls?
