Correction, the weekly deal on the PSU at OCUK will end in the middle of this week, rather than next week. calvinmc5 June 20, 2011 7:06:04 PM Okay, would this system be able to run empire total war/css/wow on the best graphics (maybe with AA turned off)? Silvune June 20, 2011 9:08:53 PM A 6870 is a really strong card, especially at 1366x768, so I would expect that it would be able to max games out, unless maybe they are very CPU heavy games. calvinmc5 June 20, 2011 9:16:59 PM Are css and the total war series CPU heavy games? even if they are would i be able to play them with good graphics? blubbey June 20, 2011 9:40:56 PM I haven't played them but I'd assume that system could quite easily run it on max settings at that resolution. 6870 is definately powerful enough to run them, the CPU should be too. Just a (relatively) educated guess, but yeah it looks fine. calvinmc5 June 20, 2011 10:01:33 PM Okay, thanks for the help guys! I'm getting my dad to show the guy whos making my computer these specs tomorrow! calvinmc5 June 21, 2011 4:35:53 PM ? Can't find your answer ? Ask !
