FM 2011 Official System/Specs Thread

Recommended Posts

Hi, I've been running FM10 with around 15-20 leagues and it's processing fine after 20 or so seasons.

For a new career save in FM11 I'd like to add in a few more countries, as I'm suffering from lack of good regens outside the 4 countries I've got loaded. I like to play lower leagues so I'd rather not drop the lower tiers I've got loaded in order to get more countries in. Is it likely I'd be able to run more than 20 leagues with this set-up?

AMD Athlon 64 X2 dual core 4200+ 2.20GHz

2GB DDR2 533 Mhz memory

Windows 7 32-bit

Sapphire Radeon HD 4550 512MB GDDR3 PCI-E 2.0x16 Graphics Card

Is it worth upgrading to 4GB RAM, or 64 bit OS? (bearing in mind costs, and that I can change RAM but have never installed a new OS before!)

Cheers.

I don't recommend loading more than 20 leagues. 4GB RAM & 64bit will help but not drasticaly.

I have the same setup as this and running the demo, FM2011 3D is a bit jerky on full quality but perfectly fine on Medium replete with all the other affects. Very encouraged about running 20 leagues though!

Same ques again.

As I said HP is the best IMO. Just slightly behind lenovo in specs but lenovo has a poor Fn and Ctrl key placement.

Hi,

I am thinking of buying this laptop:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00440D5MC/ref=s9_simh_gw_p147_d0_i2?pf_rd_m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&pf_rd_s=center-2&pf_rd_r=0JQSE6C7ESR5AB0GYJ2K&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=467128533&pf_rd_i=468294

intel i3-370m 2.4ghz

intel hd graphics

3gb ram

Will it run the game ok and will it run the 3d match engine? I want to get a fairly portable machine (my current 15.4" laptop is too big) but none seem to have dedicated graphics card so am a bit worried the integrated graphics won't be good enough :|

Does FM11 take advantage of the latest DirectX for me to bother putting it on a Windows 7 machine or is Win XP perfectly good for it?

Its very hard to find a laptop CPU for a good price. You can buy a better laptop for the price of T9300.

Haha fe. Although knowing me I'll load the extra leagues anyway, sacrificing processing speeds. How much would they actually be affected? :D

Thanks for all your help too! :D
