Hi everyone! I just want to get some opinions on this rig I'm building for S2:TW and many other games in the present and future (mainly things like portal 2, HL2:E3, Fallout, Crysis, Black Ops etc):-
System Specification - OS:Win 7 64-bit Home Premium - Case:Xigmatek Midgard Midi Tower - Black - Power Supply:Corsair CX 600W - CPU:Intel Core i5 760 2.93GHz overclocked to 4.00GHz - Motherboard:Gigabyte P55-USB3 Intel P55 (Socket 1156) DDR3 Motherboard - Cooler:Xigmatek Dark Knight CPU Cooler - RAM:Corsair XMS3 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 1600MHz Dual Channel Kit - Hard Drive:Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 500GB SATA-II 16MB Cache - Graphics Card:MSI Cyclone GeForce GTX 460 1024MB GDDR5 - Sound:Realtek 7.1 Channel Sound (On-Board)
The Overclocking is safe and will be maintained at that 4GHz Level. I've not played Empire or Napoleon TW so I can't really say how well this rig would perform against it. The RAM amount looks a bit low, but it isn't a cheap brand of RAM so I hope that will hold.
