Does this mean it is a 64bit game??

If so it would be one of the first mainstream 64bit games would it not?

This outdates mine too. I just crossfired 2 HD 5850 with 8GB RAM and Q6600 and I wonder if I'll be able to fire this up on any decent graphics settings

Wow. That's amazing. My laptop will be struggling to play this even on minimum settings. And I'll have to upgrade my ram.
Might be time to build that desktop pc
