Hi every one
iam buying a new system and i was just wondering if it would be able to run empire total war with all the graphics setting maxed on medium resolution? The specs of this system are...

CPU- intel core i7 930 @2.8ghz
GPU- xfx radeon HD5770 1gb
RAM- 6gb (3, 2gb sticks) of corsair xms ddr3 @1600mhz
HDD- intel x25-m 80gb ssd with Read- 250mbps Write- 70mbps
PSU- corsair HX1000watt ATX
MOBO- gigabyte X58A UD7
CASE- coolermaster haf 932
OS- windows 7 ultimate
CPU COOLER- zalman CNPS10x aftermarket cooler

I want to be able to max empire total war with good fps even in large battles with lots of troops with the unit scale on max if possible

Can i max it??? Please, if you can help, don't hesitate

most likely yes. Empire ran fine on my c2d E6750/8800GT. Ideally if you can run Medieval total war 2, empire should run better, because M2 was designed for a single core, so the lower clocked duals/quads dont really help at all. Empire was designed to run on Quads and it shows, really really smooth on my i7.

I currently have an i7920 @3.2ghz and an ati 5850 and it doesnt even break a sweat on empire.


If I were you i would save 100 sumthin bucks and get a corsair 750TX

you can put that money toward a 5850

without increasing your total cost.

That PSU is just way overkill. 750TX powers my 5850/i7920@3.2 no problem.

Not sure about ETW, but NTW must be i7-friendly (i7 logos is all over the disc box and loading screens of the game).
Btw, why don't you istall demos of both games (available via Steam)?
Cheers!

Dude I have an i7 920 and an ATI 5850. it doesnt even break a sweat on Empire, I have the game!

My core2duo e6750 8800GT played it fine on mixed med/high settings.

What is med res? I have a 1680x1050 native res monitor if that gives you an idea.


IT WILL BE FINE.
