My brother just gave me his PC cus he built a new one again. Don't know why he keeps putting together new ones but this time I guess it's good news for me!!!!!
To be honest I'm not too familiar with PC components cus I've used a ibook for the past couple years and before that had an old compaq but I'm really wanting to play that game
Medieval 2 : Total War and maybe Empire Total War when it comes out.
Wanting to know if I will be needing to upgrade to play either of those games on DECENT SETTINGS. Any suggestions please! I'm limited on $$$ and don't want to waste time + $$$ to buy a game that doesn't run well.
I do know that the acer monitor he gave me has a resolution that can't go any higher than 1680 by 1050 I think it's a 22 inch not sure but shouldn't matter too much should it?
I'm going to list all the specs information that I can find or think of.
AMD Athlon X2 6400+ 3.2ghz @ 3.49 so i'm not sure if it's 3.2 or 3.49 Wutever but that's what it says anyways ok next
3GB of DDR2 800 Ram
150GB Western Digital Raptor
Don't know why he has 2 hard drives in it. You'd think the 500GB would be enough.....
ok um the graphics card made by BFG Tech 8800GTX 768mb
not sure if sound card matters but it's a xtreme gamer by creative
oh almost forgot it's on a vista ultimate I'm more familiar with xp cus i've used it on friends
em besides that i see some zalman fan i asked him about that fan taped to the graphics card he said it runs cooler with it so i won't mess with it besides that i just see an excess of fans
here is a pic i took hosted hope you can see it below
OK so that's all I can think to list any other info you need I forgot to list please ask. Remember any advice would help! I really want to play
Medieval 2 Total War and Empires when released.
Sorry I sound like a 12 year old but I haven't kept updated with PCs since the Pentium 3. At least I got a decent camera to take some pictures so you guys don't get too bored.
Out of curiousity what on earth did your brother upgrade to? The only thing on there I may have done is got a better proc, and maybe added another GTX if I felt even that was necessary. As it stands the only thing ive had difficulty running at my monitors native res(1024x1280) with the highest detail settings is crysis.
thanks alot everyone bought the game going to install it later when i hav etime. oh tsd16 I talked to him on the phone about it
qx9650 core 2 extreme processor can't remember how fast he said it was maybe like 2.5 or like 2.7 I know it's the qx9650 core 2 extreme though
4gb of ddr3 1600 ram
two of nvidia 9800 gx2 model linked together
don't know about sound card or hard drives
