I wouldn't call it low end. More 'enthusiast' entry-level, especially with the T3PA pedals. The T80 would be very low end. My first few online races in the first closed beta had me very excited that I was racing against some really clean drivers. On my second day of the closed beta, I had some AWFUL online races and was matched with half of field of retarded noobs. Will probably take a little while to get out of the noob zone once I get the game.. that is... if I ever decide to go racing randoms. Must say... those graphics are abso-fucking-lutely MINT!
