My bro is looking to get a new system. He isn't very good with hardware. I've been out of the scene for a while. I was wondering if someone already has a system they built and satisfied with. I can just copy the blueprints The goal is to build a system under $1,500.
Here are the minimum requirements for the game:
Some New Game (forget the name):
Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo 2.2 GHz or AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400+ or better
Video Card: 512 MB Card
Age of Conan is:
Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4 GHz (E6600) or better
Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce 7950GX2 or better
RAM: 2GB or more
When it plays I get about 25+ fps pretty much everywhere, but it kind feels like I'm at the lower end of min spec to keep the game "playable" without starting to stretch the definition to "technically its playable"
For motherboard I'd recommend going with a P35.
4GB RAM mandatory (definitely go for faster clocked ram, there is a big difference in the speed ,especially if you're going with a faster processor). Turn off pagefile with 4gb of RAM and zoning will be ultra fast.
Dual core is fine for this game, but it always burns one CPU at or near 100% once the game gets started, so go with the fastest processor you can afford.
