In the specs it says 5Gb install size.

Is this all that is needed, or is any extra space required for decompression / temp / stuff?

I'm hoping to make a 5Gb RAMdrive to install this baby on - need to make sure it's big enough.

Is the engine mostly IO or CPU or Video bound? I can't alter the specs of my laptop, and I really want to get it running as smooth as possible. How tweakable is it? Is it Largeaddress aware? Will it use RAM above 4Gb? Is it fully multi-threaded for 4 hyperthreading cores?

Will my 2Gb 5850 (only ddr3) burn up and die?

download size is 1.5GB (source: here)

no idea if that's uncompressed or not, nor the full file size if it is.

No way that is full size. That is pure Beta size only.

Im pretty sure the minimum/recommended specs stated would be for the beta only, a lot can happen between now and September

5GB is an estimated for installed full version
1,3Gb is setup/download file size
1,8GB is beta install filesize

Will the beta allow multiple installations from a single S/N?

I have 4 or 5 different systems I'd like to test this out on, various CPU / Video combos.
