My short version of LOTRO's true system requirements based on my own experience is that you need a 64-bit OS, at least 4 GB RAM (8 GB would be better), and a decent-ish graphics card. The latter has never been a limiting factor for me - I'd upgraded to something pretty recent on my old computer - so I can't offer much in the way of specifics there. If you're still using a 2007-era graphics card, though, that would be a problem... Turbine's official minimum and recommended system specs are laughably out of date (my old computer greatly exceeded their "recommended" specs), so I read that particular entry in the 20 Questions as just meaning that they're going to try to bring the official specs into line with the game as it currently exists.
No need to decide between buying HD or replacing your computer right now. Wait until Nov. 18, log in, run around for a while in the new zones, see if your fps are terrible (fiddle with lowered graphics settings, iterate, etc.), see if you crash, tag some new stables and see the new sights while you're at it. Then if you find that it's playable, buy the expansion, if not, don't. That's exactly what I did with RoR last year, and it worked out fine. Would have been nice if it had been playable on the old computer, but there were plenty of single player games to keep me busy instead.
Glad to hear it seems like the discussed increases of system requirements will probably be a recommendation. If I do run into issues with HD hopefully it is only in that area or only when attempting Epic Battles, leaving the majority of the game open to continue enjoying.
Did we ever get an official comment about the festival currency unification?
Please forgive me if this has already been covered. I read that there will be a seals reset. Will there also be a marks & medallions reset?
