For anyone here who plays CIV 4 what would you consider the game to need for max settings on huge map? The only thing that doesn't need to be at the highest is resolution (I use 1280x1024 but will drop down to 1024x768 if I need to).
You will be fine with those specs.
I run a AMD64 3000+, 6600GT, 2 GIG ram system and it handles the big maps fine with there only being slowdown from the modern age onwards.
That's with the biggest map, full graphic detail and 17 civs in play.
