Hi everyone!

How powerful computer has to be in order to handle the best graphics possible in RTW (including the highest pack size)

Lets say 2000 against 2000 fighting on a bridge

I have:

2.24 Ghz P4 processer
512 RAM
Fx5200 Graphics card

and I can run on medium-high settings onlarge battles with very little lag.

And beyond, green fields under a swift sunrise
Oh well, thats not so bad, is it?
No, no it's not

I almost have an identical Desktop system to you Carthage. But it is a family computer so i dont play on it and it has tons of files so it is laggy as hell so i play on my laptop which is not one of the best gaming things around

AMD Anthlon 64
512 RAM

It sucks to be poor

I have 2.16 Duo 1GB DDR2, 128 MB GeForce Go

And still I cannot play with the best graphics and largest unit pack size I want. If I have too many people involved in a battle then everything gets too slow and starts lagging.

I run a 1.8 Core Duo, 1 gig RAM Dell Latitude D820 laptop with an integrated Intel 945/50 graphics processor.

Not amazing, but it lets me play on huge scale with medium graphics except for high effect detail and it only lags when I speed up a high number battle or gets really bad when I have around 8000 people on screen.

I have a 1.8 ghz CoreDuo, 4 gb of dual channel DDR2 (667 mhz), and a GeForce 7600 GT. I play at 1024 x 768, 32 bit, on huge scale with almost everything turned up (I leave off the smoke & dust because I do not like it, and leave off the gloss as well), and anti-aliasing at Low. It runs fine for battles of 2-3k soldiers per side, but it starts to slow down in sieges and in battles with larger armies. I had a battle with an army of 2,700 vs 9,000, and I had to turn the AA and everything else off for it to run with any measure of smoothness.

Something to keep in mind that a good gaming rig is not only about buying the best hardware, but making the most with what you have by keeping your computer a lean, well-tuned machine. Defrag on a regular basis, prevent programs from starting automatically with windows, things like that. Tweak3D and Tweak Guides are good places to look for step-by-step help in doing that.
