More about will sims medieval play
  1. wow is this that hard of a question???? what..... should i know the anwser????
    listen i went to some sites and they said i need "pixel shader 2.0" is that true?.....cant i just download the software so it will run???? WTF?????
  2. Sims Medieval, will run on your system, no doubt about it. you just won't be able to play with all the eye candy turned on though.
  3. I would like to look at it in crstal clear 3D like the creators of the game. if that involves me to get a high-end graphics card......which on should i get? Cant i just overclock my cpu and my on-board graphics to improve the quality of picture? and i am connected to my 60inch, SHARP, HDTV and working in a 1080i field already.
  4. depending on your power supply i would recommend bang for buck either a nvidia 460, or a 560. or an ati 6870 if you want power savings.
    all the cards should allow you to run at max or near max settings @1080p or 1080i if your tv cant to progressive.

    you will need at least a 450watt but preferably a 550 watt unit to give a little headroom also as you have an am3 board a 3.0ghz quad core cpu to make sure you dont bottleneck your gpu...

    I have a 550 watt psu...a athlon 2 X 2 dual core at 3.1GHz(stock) but can O.C. to 4GHz if nessacary. so will it play in good is my question or do i need a graphics card?
  6. Which PSU is it ? Is it cooler master, corsair, antec.. etc ?

    Also, could you state the model as well.

    Getting a GPU or graphics card, would be better. Other than this one, what games do you play ? GTX 460 or GTX 560 or a HD 5870 or above, would be nice.

    Could you please state your budget as well ?
  7. Its an Ultra 550 Pro PSU.... but i would proabably spend 100-150 on a good graphics card. and this is my first build after 10 years... ive been out of the pc gaming world and want to get this as my first game but want to make sure it looks good. im more of a cod fan and rpgs...
  8. I don't know much abot 'Ultra', but if you going to spend 100-150 $, I would suggest you go for a HD 5770 or above
    OR
    If you like nvidia, then a GTX 460 or so.
  9. Ultra sucks. They are basically considered sub-par (crap).

    I would get an AMD card over a nVidia card due to lower power consumption for the Ultra PSU. Therefore, a HD 5770 should be fine.
