What kind of computer?

Recommended Posts

The Manual lists minimum specs as 1ghz CPU, 512MB RAM, CPU with 128GB VRAM. Pretty mild.

I have the game on a Core2Duo laptop with a dedicated GPU with 256 MB VRAM and on a desktop that blows that out of the water. Both machines have 8GB RAM. Runs smooth as butter on both.

I use an AMD FX8150 with an SSD drive and a HD6950 GPU. Total RAM is 24 GB running under Win 7 Ultimate 64 bit. The GPU and RAM are overkill but the SSD helps the game load much faster.

My recommendation would be to get a 4 core Intel chip like an I5 sandy bridge and run it under Win XP 64 bit. Win XP executes it faster than Win 7 and the 64 bit OS will allow you to get more than 4 GB of memory in use. The game seems to execute mostly in memory and I would think a fast CPU and reasonably fast memory would be best.

The AMD chips are cheaper in the US and a good value but the Intel chips do run the code better, probably due to the fact most compilers are optimized for Intel CPUs.
