i can barely find time for starcraft II so i doubt i'll be buying this (never played the previous iterations but i'm sure i'd like it)...maybe i'll pick it up from the bargain bin someday

I loved 4 but there is no way this will run on my PC. I need a new computer. First no SC2 now this.

The new grid looks awesome. Kind of like Settlers of Catan. I just hope they find a way to make battles more fun.

yeah i am barely running SCII (i dont meet the min specs...i have a 2.4Ghz single core, min is 2.6) but i do have 3 GB RAM and an adequate Video Card (NVIDA GEFORCE 8600)...i can only run graphics on medium though and it lags during big battles

i believe Civ 5 requires a Dual Core 2.4GHz for it's min specs...i suppose i could try it but would have my doubts how it would run

Diablo 3 will probably be the one that makes me break down and buy a new PC

I hope they put a lot of effort into making multiplayer work.

I would like a system where you could log in once a day and do your turn(s) and have a multiplayer game finish in a couple months and not two years.

yeah, the specs on this one aren't too friendly, are they?

Code: Select all
Civilization 5 Minimum Requirements:

- Operating System: Windows XP SP3/ Windows Vista SP2 / Windows 7
- Processor: Dual Core CPU
- Memory: 2 GB RAM
- Hard Disk Space: 8 GB Free
- DVD-ROM Drive: Required for disc-based installation
- Video: 256 MB ATI HD2600 XT or better, 256 MB nVidia 7900 GS or better, or Core i3 or better intergrated graphics
- Sound: DirectX 9.0c-compatibile sound card
- DirectX: DirectX version 9.0c

I can make the minimums, but I have no idea if an nVidia Quadro NVS 160M is good enough. So, I'm waiting until they release the demo on release day.

Here's hoping for the best! :-o

So I asked over at civfanatics, and someone said my specs should be above min.

I'm strongly considering that pre-download. :-B
