The minimum system specifications for Empire: Total War have been announced on the official ETW website. To run ETW your computer will need at least the following:
2.4Ghz single core processor
256MB Gfx card (DX9 compaitble)
1GB RAM (For XP, 2GB if using Vista)
So for everyone who has been wondering if their computer can run ETW: here's your answer. Keep in mind that these are just minimum specs, if you want the game to look like it does on the screenshots you'll need a more powerful pc.

Here's the announcement.

I was expecting it to be very scaleable as previous TW games are, but this spec is lower than I expected. Good news for all those who don't want to fork out the dosh on a more powerful computer.

My pc should do pretty well if that is the minimum. I'll not have any problems it appears.

I'm a bit confused about the specs too . I hope the game comes on this site before I get it (for easier checking). I can run M2TW on all settings but I'm not sure if ETW will work.

I can run it. Up yours Ubisoft!!!

Brigadier-General Oxley- They are lying out in No Man's Land, sir. And most of them will never stand again.

I’m not quite up there on the exact equivalency in speed between single, dual, core2duo and quad core processors myself. Still, those specs are surprisingly low – with the exception of the graphics card, the rest can be found in even a fairly low-end machine. That's quite impressive if the game is that scaleable.

I was expecting minimum to be amped up a bit, doesn't really matter, I beat the minimum by a mile in a half.

Yeah, you're good on the VRAM.
Do you have an 8 series?

Jomas:

Graphics Card
(wouldn't hurt to read up on computers!)

Bandito:

Upgrade the graphics card and you will be good to go!
(It's fine right now, but the graphics won't be very enjoyable.)

Don't forget people, the minimum specs only run it at the lowest level. You try running M2TW on 512MB RAM, or RTW on 256MB RAM, you will have trouble.

According to the dxdiag:

-My Processor is "AMD Athlon 64 Processor 3500+, MMX,3DNow,~2.2 GHz"
-My RAM should be enough (a little over 1 GB)
-Not sure about Gfx Card but it might be "NVIDIA GeForce 6600" with 256.0 MB memory

Could I run ETW with these (not sure about the processor)?
