My projected configuration to run the game very well (with all graphic options enabled, in 1280*1024) is:
dual core at 3 GHz (quad core is appreciated but not mandatory)
2 gb of ram
nVidia 8800 GT 512mb (ATi 4850 512mb)
512mb on the video card is a minimum to play the game with every option checked. We're trying to make the game to fit into 256 mb of video memory (with the lowest settings).

And a video card with at least 256MB (but I'd recommend at least a 512 or better... of a decent GPU... no bargain-bin OpenGL crap)
Assassin's Creed was created by a completely different studio with a completely different engine. Those requirements are caused by the fact that their main target is the Xbox 360.
Silent Hunter has nothing to do with the Xbox 360.
The game will run on Windows 7, even the 64bit edition.
