A 4870 as recommended and Q6600? Wow. I guess this game will be a lot more optimized. I had a 4870 and a Q6600 on my old system and wouldn't imagine it running Rome II all that well. I now have a 6950.

to put it simpler whatever you can run shogun on you should be able to run rome on or very near to

Interested in buying a new pc but I have no idea what computer will run "Total War Rome 2" on the recommended system requirements. Any suggestion for a pc? Got to be under £400 Thanks!

surely any computer under £400 is jsut a glorifyed toaster or porn machine.

Hope you don't take this the wrong way, but man do I hope not. What I mean is that Windows XP has only directx9. it is fine and dandy that they have backwards compatibility, but I really hope they aren't spending tons of resources on that. I know a lot of people love XP and all of that, but seriously, Windows 7 is pretty good and we have DirectX 11 now, with better shaders and optimized graphic abilities. I'd much rather have them spend time making sure the gameplay is good and that directx 10 and 11 work well then a bunch of time on an outdated technology. take it or leave it, that is my hope at least.

they started on rome 2 since shogun 2 was released they have had plenty of time to balance dx9 and dx11 heck they had aliasing*8 avaliable as an option in medieval 2 total war!!!
Champion of Sparta May 30, 2013 @ 2:19pm 
they have spent more time on rome 2 than shogun 2

sure, but this is almost the same as having the new Halo come out and asking if it will be on Xbox as well as the 360 (or 360 and ONE)... I mean, it is great that they are providing DX9 (most likely due to the same architecture that already supports it), but it doesn't seem like something they should spend a ton of time on. also, I don't do graphics programming, but it could be due to a bad compatibility in how dx10/11 do antialiasing and dx9 does... I'd much rather have them spend time on newer technologies than adding features for obsolete systems (and as much as I know people love their XP, it is an obsolete system, at least as far as gaming goes)

you might not know this but 38% percent of pc users still use windows xp that is a huge part of the os market read this http://www.tomshardware.com/news/Windows-8-Windows-XP-Market-Share-Windows-98-Zombie,21341.html i know alot of people use windows 7 to but they would make a lot of xp users mad.... which there are alot of!!!

Yes, I actually do realize that, which is why I'm fine with them still supporting it, all I'm saying is that I personally hope they don't spend a bunch of resources making your graphics more pretty... I would rather have them spend their time making sure the game runs well, is optimized, and graphically, spend time on the better tech (10 and 11)...

If they do decide DX9 is worth the resources, that is fine, I just personally think that it isn't something they should do.

also, I didn't say XP was obsolete in itself... i say it is obsolete for gaming... many companies are starting to slowly stop supporting XP compatibility.

also, this is less than a year out, which shows that it will become obsolete for security reasons april of next year (and I really hope Rome 2 is still going strong at that time) and it will then truely be supporting an "obsolete" system...
