I can only speak with experience to civilization 4 and all its previous versions. In a nutshell, most any modern pc will do well. I have run it on a thinkpad T61 which has discrete but undistinguished graphics. It runs on a i3 duo of any kind, even with the integrated graphics. If you play on the largest of maps, the cpu can take a couple of seconds between turns for the ai. I see heavy cpu usage on one core, and half of a second, so a good duo should be fine. I use a 5870 on a 2560 x 1600 monitor with maximum detail and eye candy. The fps is restricted to 60, and it mostly stays there. Here is a link to the civ 5 minimum and maximum suggestions: http://www.joystiq.com/2010/08/07/civilization-5-system... Can't find your answer ? Ask !
