My name is Alexandros and I am currently thinking of throwing a large amount of money to be able to play mostly total war games at ultra graphics and with large amounts of troops without a glitch at as much FPS as possible. I have been a total war player all my life and now is the time for me to at last create a beast to be able to handle any total war.
After reading as many comments as possible in the forum regarding how the rig should be built and watching relative videos I have concluded with the following specs. Please give me your opinion guys. Any comment on how the game would perform and any suggestion as to how it could be potentially improved or thoughts that it is overkill at some parts are welcome.
