Hello,
I want to buy a pc setup to play rome 2 on max settings.
Got a 2000 to spend on it.
Was thinking about the following:

Asus rampage 4 extreme ROG Motherboard.
i7 820
2 x 8gb corsair platinum memory with 9cl 2400 mhz
1050w corsair hx powersuply
h100 cooling
asus gtx 780 direct cu2
1tb harddisk
120 ssd kingston hyperx 3k

Is this a good setup? Or any ideas for improvement or what would simply work better to function for the total war series?
Got this setup as an advice from a friend of mine.
Hope someone can help.

Thank you

Get a bit more RAM, OC it and water cool it.

Also having the whole game on a SSD would do good. So buy accordingly.

Hi, thanks for the reply.
So if i understood you right.
4 x 8gig corsair platinum 2400mhz cl9 would be better
Not sure what you mean with OC it?
And watercool the processor? Is a corsair h100 sufficient?
I like to build the system so i could upgrade in the future and dont have to buy a whole new set again.
And dont want to save on quality.
Thanks again for your feedback.

I meant, overclock the ram and cool it with watercooling as it will get hot. Rome needs fast SSD and fast RAM to load normally.

GPU and CPU have to be good too but the ones you listed should be ok.

Hi, thanks again.
Will have to get into overclocking or find a guy.
Im not that experienced yet.
Gues i have to find me a faster ssd.
Another question.
If i get a set of corsair platinum.
Is it wiser to get the 2400hz 4 x 4 gb cl 9, or 4 x 8gb cl 10?
Lower cl works faster right?
Thnx again

Yeah but it's usually better to have them in 8gb pairs.

Go with the OC thing only if you have the budget for it. It will be pricy. But that is pretty much what can speed up your total war. Total war has sick loading time if you just go with medicore ram and some HDD :/

Ok, thank you.
Will go for tht 4 x 8 gb then.
For ssd i take kingston hyperX 3k 240gb, seems a pretty fast and a good deal for the price.
Getting into cooling and clocking at a later stage.
Will let you know how it turns out.
Cant wait to see total war, played all of them, only always on pc that could barely handle the game on low settings.
Have a good one.
Cheers
