Guys - posting without thinking the post through isnt going to provide you with helpful responses.

Did you mean - could you recommend a graphics card or how much ram etc?
The game is EXTREMELY CPU heavy and utilises quads. Also can use DX10 and 64bit OS natively. Supports dual screens to. A good GPU is recommended too for the engines good effects and models. But focus on the CPU.

Ya danny I agree people are inherently lazy, and that manifest itself here quite a bit.

I did google it but before I spend money on a new pc im looking for as much advice on a new system as possible, Which graphics card would you recommend?

Q6600 CPU
ATI HD4870 GPU
4GB RAM
Any hard drive you like, a P45 775 motherboard and a decent PSU.

what budget do you have? although what sheep reccommended is probably the best you can get for it price/performance wise

Around £600 - £700

Yeah what quantum sheep said except the 4850 gives a slightly better performance to cost ratio, and the previous gen ati card of the same level has no problem with supcom fa, the processor is what will always hold it back, supreme commander can utilize 32 cores as far as i remember.

Just to note, i do not think you will be able to run the game with maximum map size and population size and maximum players satisfactorily with current available hardware (current reasonably priced hardware). Would recommend getting a motherboard that has reviews of people over clocking the q6600 (or whatever processor you get) successfully on it

Are you going to build it yourself or buy a pre-built?

My system (Q6600 @ 3.2 Ghz, 8 gigs ram, 8600... yes gfx bottleneck but settings are down) can't keep up with Supreme Commander 4v4 with 1000 unit limit.

The expansion might work better though so I'm going to pick that one up
