I'm so excited for this game, and the minimum requirements seem reasonable. How well do you think this will run on a 2.4gHz intel iMac? I have 1 gig of ram now but i might bump it to two for this game.

Intel-based Mac

Mac OS X 10.5.3 Leopard or higher
Intel Core Duo Processor
1024 MB RAM
128MB ATI Radeon X1600 or NVIDIA GeForce 7300 GT, or Intel Integrated GMA X3100
At least 4.7GB of free hard drive space, on top of "additional space for creations"
Spore will not support older, PowerPC-based Macs.

Supported Mac-compatible Graphics Cards

ATI Radeon series

X1600, X1900
HD 2400, HD 2600
NVIDIA GeForce series

7300, 7600, 8600, 8800
Intel Extreme Graphics (Integrated)

GMA X3100

definatly boost up to 2gb RAM. this game is guna be a memory eating monster.... if you feel a bit fruity maybe OC ur processor too, just give yourself a bit more umph, but beware of heat issues, especially if u got a macbook pro, which already cook eggs just encoding video files....

should run ok, depends on how much they let you change in the game detail wise, shaddows physics etc will make it run slower/faster depending on how much u set them at.

a 128mb gfx might also suffer, so a 256mb one will give you alot more flexability, i used to be all for ATi, but it now seems nVidia are leaving them for dead.. stick with nVidia.

4.7gb minimal space required... after you have made a few creatures i think it will be more like 10gb....

cant wait for that game, been waiting like 3 years for it...
