Hardware list (http://www.tech-report.com/etc/comparo/graphics/index.x?sort=mtexels) (FYI website is not linked with Eidos in anyway, but does have a very good table for comparisons)

Deus needs fill rate, like we need oxygen.. The link above shows a lot of cards (including some without pixel shader support unfortunately) but if you just look towards the bottom of the list you'll see which cards should give best performance in game - its sorted by fill rate. (check out the 6th column along)

This is obviously not a perfect list, and its not got the latest latest hardware on it, but its a good indicator for y'all..

Remember only GF3ti/GF4ti/GF Fx, Radeon 8500+ supported!

That's useful information, thanks.

Looks like the Radeon 9700 pro I just ordered will do nicely, can't wait for it to arrive :D

It will indeed! and congrads on your purchase...I keep telling people the 9700pro is the best bang for your buck..Fully Dx9 compatiable, blistering fast, and highly over clockable!

yeah the 9700Pro is damn good but according to HL2 benchs the 9600Pro is best bang for yer buck :p

Anyway, here is an alternate chart (http://freespace.virgin.net/neeyik.uk/3dspecs/) which shows nearly every single GPU ever made and its updated regularly.

No problemo, I've always found that chart to be useful as I hang around tech forums somewhat.
