hi, Ishu, I have ordered a new pc not long ago, and would like to know how many leagues / how big the database I could run the game, I printed a pdf when I ordered the pc, I have uploaded it online and please take a look if you don't mind.

The link is here: http://www.sendspace.com/file/9xs00l

Thanks a lot.

Ok. How much money do you have to spend?

What I'd do would be to upgrade to 4gb of RAM and upgrade your graphics card to Ati Radeon 5450 if you only use your PC to play FM.

Your proccy is decent, should be able to handle 20-25 leagues but can be upgraded if you have some money spare. What mobo (motherboard) do you have? I need to know so I can check if your proccy is upgradable and how many RAM slots you have.

I'm not sure about my motherboard(is there any site I can find this on?). Regarding the processor I was thinking of an upgrade to a quad core to obviously increased speeds and was also thinking about getting a windows 64-bit OS but that will set me back $250.

My budget after the sale of a few items will probably be around $600-$800.

Thanks for your help.

ok, after much deliberation.. ive decided to go for a desktop instead.. (more bang for my buck and a laptop can come later for web browsing etc)

so..... £600 budget.... whats the best gaming pc i can get? baring in mind the games in question will be Football manager , total war series and possibly the likes of arma 2

Custom Built or Pre-built

Wow that's a lot... Would they all be playable?

Yep.

I linked some memory scanners on the 3rd or 4th page. They'll tell you.

Buy a better processor and maximise your RAM.

Switch graphic card if 3D is not smooth.

I am thinking about getting a new PC. This is my current "wish-list":

Intel Pentium i7-950 (4x 3066 MHz)

AMD Radeon HD6870 (1024 MB, 256 Bit)

OCZ 6 GB DDR3-1333 Tri-Kit

Asus P6X58D-E motherboard

Samsung HD103SJ 1TB (x2)

I will run Windows 7 64-bit on it.

Can anyone tell me what I can expect for FM2011 with this set-up?

How many cores is your processor?

If its dual; 30-35 leagues 60K players

If its quad; 40-45 leagues 80K players

Should run well though as it is a decent system.

Actually on 64bit FM will use 4GB RAM. 2GB can be used by windows, softwares etc. In 32bit FM can only use 2GB.

I am really suprised at that, so basically its not worth having more than 4GB of RAM in a pc?

Dual, but cheers mate. I assume this goes for long term games as well or do I have to cut down a bit in that case?

Yes.

If FM is using all of your 4GB where will windows and antivirus etc go??

And some softwares have the abilty to use more than 4GB. Withina a year or two more and more softwares will do that.

This will do well in the long term. You can lower it to 25 and 45k players if you want it to be fast.

I used PC Specialist - http://www.pcspecialist.co.uk/

My new PC was despatched today - pretty reasonable prices and a decent forum that offers good advice if your looking for a 2nd opinion.

My specs for the new PC are a few pages back but I did pretty well for just over £500.

Sony.

Graphic card - 4250 is just slightly better than HD.

RAM & CPU are better in the first one.

Thanks my friend, I had a feeling that the SONY would be better, so I should have no problems with the 3D???

Fellas

Just bought a new PC (Athlon Quad Core) with a ATI Radeon HD 5400 graphics card. Should the latter be OK to run 3D in the demo, which I'm now downloading? Tried to run the 3D in FM09 tonight and whist I could set the detail to 'High' in preferences, it still only showed 2D.

*bugger* Any help appreciated.

I couldn't say, but maybe it was a setting you forgot to tick. It'll run high on your laptop though.

Not good

With that money I'd change everything in your PC, accept the case. Will get back to you with some different parts.
