FM 2011 Official System/Specs Thread

2,120 posts in this topic

Just wondering, I'm looking to start a long term game now the new patch is out (30+ seasons probably), is it wise to have 53 games loaded on my set up? Will it affect it that much?

Otherwise, whats a good number of leagues to have for a longer term game and should I set some to view only [ones that I don't plan on playing in but would like to have up]

Cheers

53 is decent for a long term.

Which would be the better system to run FM including the 3D match engine?

I am presuming the first one?

Intel i5-2400 Quad Core 3.1 ghz, 6MB cache + HD graphics

ASUS P8H67-M LX SI Micro ATX Mainboard, LG1155, SATA 6.0gb/s

4GB Samsung DDR3 1333mhz

1GB ATI Radeon HD5770

1TB Serial ATA 3-Gb/s Hard Drive with 16MB cache (7,200 rpm)

Intel i5-655K Dual Core 3.2ghz, 4MB cache + HD graphics

ASUS P7H55-M SI: Micro ATX Value Mainboard, SATA 3.0gb/s

4GB Samsung DDR3 1333mhz

1GB ATI Radeon HD5770

1TB Serial ATA 3-Gb/s Hard Drive with 16MB cache (7,200 rpm)

3D is easily high on both.

First one will be twice as powerful than the second one.

The second one is outdated crap.

30 should be OK. :D

Thanks :) I selected Belgium, England, France, Holland, Germany, Italy, Portugal, Scotland and Russia and game speed was 2 stars. Do you think I would be pushing it a bit trying to include the Danish league making it 40 leagues from 12 nations? I would like to add USA league and maybe Australian but that might be too much.

If I ran a brazilian league or argentine league would it mean I will be more likely to get decent players from them countries coming through once the current players in the game have retired?

My spec again is

Apple Macbook Pro

CPU Intel Core I5 2.4 GHZ

Memory 4GB DDR

Graphics card intel HD and Nivdia GeoForce GT 330M

Should alright if you are a bit patient.

I don't like loading Brazil, it gets "overloaded" with top quality regens.

PS: Don't mind the stars. They are flawed.

Hey guys.

I bought the new Macbook pro with the express gaming purpose of playing FM (plus all the day-job things).

I got the low spec 13 inch:

Dual Core i5 2.3 GHZ Sandybridge processor.

4 GB Ram 1333 MHZ DDR3

HD 3000 Intel Graphics

How many leagues should I be able to run for a game?

I noticed someone say on this thread that the "stars are flawed" - in what way?

Thanks

Whats the maximum number of leagues/players I should load of up for a long term game?

Intel i5 750 Quad Core @ 3.7ghz

8gb DDR3 ram @ 1600mhz

Windows 7 64

I know i have a powerful system but I'm never sure how far I can push it without it becoming too slow.

Hi Ishu,

this week my new laptop will (hopefully) be delivered. This thread was very useful when deciding what laptop to go for, so thanks.

I decided to be patient and wait for all of the Sandy Bridge problems to pass by, and I finally purchased the next configuration:

Processor: 2nd generation Intel Core i7-2630QM processor 2.00 GHz with Turbo Boost 2.0 up to 2.90 GHz

Memory : 6GB (1X4GB + 1X2GB) 1333MHz DDR3 Dual Channel 1 SR

Hard Drive : 640GB Serial ATA (7200RPM) 1 SR

Graphics : 1GB NVIDIA GeForce GT 550M Graphics Card 1 SR

Operating System : Genuine Windows 7 Home Premium (64 BIT) 1 SR

How many leagues would you recommend? And would it be possible to run a game with ALL leagues turned on (I realize this may slow the game down after a few years)? Or is there some kind of maximum?

Thanks in advance

I would suggest 70.

There are around 130 leagues in total.

Hi mates,

Got a problem here. In order for me to play FM well, ie fast processing speed and high on 3D graphics, i've bought a new laptop. Listed below are the specs:

Intel® Core™ i5-460M Processor 2.53GHz

Genuine Windows® 7 Home Premium 64-bit

500GB Serial ATA 5400rpm

6GB DDR3 SDRAM (max. 8GB)

ATI Mobility Radeon™ HD 5650 Graphics with 1 GB DDR3 of Dedicated Video Memory

However, i've managed to solve the problem of speed. My System 3D Rating only gives me 2 and half star. Please oh please the wise one, is there anything i can do to improve my System 3D Rating to 4/5...?

Thank you. :)

My old laptop is struggling along at the moment and I'm wondering just how bad the spec actually is.

I've got a Dual Core 1.66GHz processor and 3GB of RAM. I'm running Windows Vista.

I know for FM08 and the older versions, my laptop was pretty good, as it only needed a dual core 1.4GHz processor and 1GB RAM.

These days, for FM10 and FM11, the box says I need a 2GHz processor - is that a Dual Core one? :confused:

Anyone have any idea how many leagues I could run and what database size it would be best to use? I wanted to try a journeyman save with quite a few leagues loaded if possible.

I'd be grateful for any answers to my questions. Thanks. :)

New laptop needed, budget of approximately $600. I've had success with Dell's in the past & get a decent corporate discount for purchasing from Dell.com.

But I'm not sure what I should buy, the options appear to be between:

INSPIRON 15R (List Price= $529)

New 2010 Intel® Core™ i3-370M (2.4GHz, 4Threads, 3M cache)

4GB DDR3 Shared Dual Channel Memory + 500GB 5400RPM HDD

or

INSPIRON 15R (List Price= $579)

New 2010 Intel® Core™ i5-460M (2.53Ghz / up to SC 2.8GHz / 3M)

4GB DDR3 Shared Dual Channel Memory + 500GB 5400RPM HDD

The only difference between the two options for $50 seems to be the support of the i5 for Turbo Boost technology, and the general consensus that the i5 is better than the i3 processor.

Any thoughts/suggestions?

@Roycebrown, I would go with the i5 it is newer and more powerful.

It is worth $50 more for the slightly faster processor (2.4 compared to 2.53) & Turbo Boost (which seems pretty useless so far)?

I am leaning towards the i5, unless there's a way better way to spend $500-600. Also, how will FM11 run on an i5?

Mine is a 1.73GHz Dual Core with W7 and I'm am playing with 12 leagues.

Database size doesn't matter too much.

i5 is slightly better than the i3 and turbo core can come in useful for some application.

Its in your budget, so why not? :D

The i5 can run around 30 leagues.

If you don't want the portability of a laptop, a desktop (especially customized) will be able to run way more than that.

Ishu, if you have the time, could you kindly explain on the System 3D Rating...? It's a bit confusing and misleading.
