AMD Phenom II N620 Dual-Core 2.80GHz

4GB RAM

The laptop's 2 years old so I'm not exactly expecting stunning performance, but would it still behave if I ran 12 leagues on it?

Hi guys, can you tell me where I could improve in terms of speed and being able to load up quite a few leagues etc

My system is as follows:-

Intel® Pentium® Dual CPU E2180 @ 2.00GHz

2.0 GHz

Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium Edition Service Pack 2 (build 6002), 32-bit

Intel® G41 Express Chipset (graphics card)

177.6 GB free disk space

My monitor unfortunately has pixels that have basically died and left a horrible black smudge on my screen, so that needs replacing, there not much these days for a decent one.

Any ideas where I can improve my set up?

Cheers, tbh.

since the beta has huge processing issues its hard to tell atm how good any processor can run how many league, we have to wait till the processing issue is resolved to give any answers

How many leagues/nations do we think a Macbook Air can run? Would it be worth getting the Pro for faster speeds etc?

I hope with a i7 and 16gb I will be able to run 50 leagues. But the process speed needs to improve

not very clued up on the xeon's if i'm honest, but if i remember right, they are below i7 standard, i would expect 10-15 leagues would push it

but as i said, i might be way off with this... I'll let someone more knowledgable on those particular chips to let you know lol

Well,my current laptop processor is an Intel Core i3 of 2.5 Ghz capacity and i have loaded more than 20 leagues and is still going with no problem.In terms of processing speed i tend to face other weirder problems than some more leagues though lol:rolleyes:

Could anyone help with this. My Specs

Technical Details

Intel Pentium P6100 2.0 GHz Processor

4GB RAM, 500GB HDD

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

How many leagues could I run and how many if I upgraded the ram to 8GB?

Also when people say 15-20 leagues is that including all the leagues of one country? e.g Prem, Championship, League 1, League 2 would be 4 leagues and then if you run the lower leagues then that would take up further part of the 15-20 leagues?

Ok, I have one as well; planning to build a new system next month:

How many could I comfortably run on:

I3 3220

8GB RAM

120 GB SSD + 350 GB HDD

And for the tech-gurus:

Still undecided on the GPU... I'm not a hardcore gamer (95% FM and 5% CIV5, COD, etc but nothing on Ultra High)

I want 5 star graphic performance for FM13.

Should I go with HD6670 or HD7770?

Of even a third option?

cheers

I like the 7770 Eric, it's always been a powerhouse.. I'd go that that.

The CPU will be your bottleneck though, it's a bit underpowered compared to the rest of your build, If you can afford it , upgrade to a decent i5 (which shouldn't be that much of a jump price wise) and you'll be set

Hmm, back to the drawing board it is then (i3-i5)

I really would like to know this. I can currently run about two or three leagues reasonably (slow but acceptable) on my Macbook Pro which has the following specifications:

Current Macbook Pro:

14" monitor 1280x800 (the thing that most annoys me aside from the speed is scrolling down for 3-4 players)

2.4ghz Intel Core 2 Duo

4gB 1067mh DD3 ram

256gB 5200RPM hdd

What can I expect from my new system I've just ordered? Had to sell so much music gear to buy this just to play FM to the max lol (and also get into different gaming seen as though EA Sport ruined FIFA with FIFA13):

New Laptop:

17.3" (43.94 cm) WideFHD (1920 x 1080) WLED LCD

3rd Generation Intel® CoreTM i7-3840QM Processor (8MB Cache, up to 3.8GHz w/ Turbo Boost 2.0)

32GB 1600MHZ DDR3 SDRAM (4 x 8GB)

750GB 7200RPM Hard Drive + 64GB mSATA SSD (will upgrade to 480gB SSD soon Intel 520)

2GB DDR5 NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 680M

How many leagues? Will all my graphics run smoothly? Will I be able to fit more than 21-22 players in the main screen? Will I finally be able to find unknowns like Puscas by loading each and every player? I tried that with my Mac and it didn't die... it barely ran and when it came to match day the speeds were embarrassing to say the least but I was happy it never froze or crashed so I have hope with the new pc that I'll be able to run 200,000-300,000 players so can I finally play and not restart my game each time I want "a new adventure" and finally build a team of regens like I've always wanted :-)

Any responses would be greatly appreciated I know dick all I literally copied and pasted everything lol.

That's great I read a lot of reviews saying that newer PCs were having trouble running FM13 specifically but a lot of them weren't as spec'd as this laptop I guess with the RAM, CPU and SSD. Admittedly I won't be able to probably run EVERY player as I'd need a desktop PC for that but I'd still like 4-5x the regular amount so I don't get bored so quickly from a lack of selection of real players and always relying on regens even though they have their place too. I'd really like to be able to finally hear sound on FM for the first time in 4-5 years too since it became too slow on all my PCs I owned since then (previous ones though worked a treat!).

2-year old laptop here but was top of the line when I bought it. Somehow FM13 is looking very slugggish on it:

ASUS RoG G73JW with i7 Q740M Intel CPU, NVidia GTX 460M with 1.5GB dedicated RAM, 8GB of RAM, 120GB SSD Corsair

The thing is that 3D Mark Vantage Performance score gives approx 5000 for GPU and the CPU score fluctuates between 5000 and 18000 :s Wondering if a clean install is in order?

When in game and you reduce the number of leagues the game says they will be cut starting from the next 20th June, that's fine but how to see how many players I will have after the reduction ? Am I forced to wait for the 20th of the next June to know that ? Thx

What would it take to run every league and every player at a decent speed..? It seems like this game is made for comps that dont exist yet..

On reading the thread that mentions the difficulty in selling players, and that the transfer market is "boosted" by loading lots of different nations, I'm thinking of starting a new game with plenty of leagues/medium DB.

What could I get away with on this PC:

Windows 7 64-bit

Intel i3 @ 3GHz

8Gb DDR3 RAM

AMD Radeon HD6870 (if that makes a difference?)

My PC performance is rated at 5 stars, game speed with England L2 and above, France top 2, Italy top 2, Germany top 2, Spain top 2 and large DB was rated at 4 stars...

Its not boosted, if anything its the opposite. I have problems buying and selling every year and I always push my system past the recommended limits.

I have..

i7 3770 @3.5

8GB Ram

SSD

200,000 players, 42 leagues (I think) and its slowish imo but could be normal.. I was recommended only to have 125,000 players. But said balls to that..

I dont think anyone could run everything at a decent speed.

I see. Oh well.

It's a shame really. I never even thought about the transfer market until I read that thread, suddenly I've realised it's virtually non-existent on my end.

I had hoped loading multiple leagues would solve it :/

The slowness varies a lot during the year when you have many leagues.

It happens that for few weeks you have an acceptable speed then in certain periods all of a sudden you can wait up to 5 minutes to process what ?

I can't understand why this huge difference and I am not speaking about the end of the year.

Yeah, pre season takes foreever.. Mid october and it flies (sort of) thru..

Overall I'm not impressed. I expect my comp to perform much better than it does.. I wouldnt mind but it isnt even push my comp to much more than a quarter of what its capable

Thinking of getting back into FM after not bothering for the last few years, problem is my PC is a bit of a dinosaur. Is there any point getting it with this setup?

Windows XP SP3

Pentium 4 3GHz

3GB RAM

128MB ATI Radeon X600 SE

According to systemrequirementslab.com I should be fine apart from the graphics card but that doesn't sound right to me. If it is though, any recommendations for a graphics card?

My sony Vaio i3 is useless with the new Fm. So slow and can only really run one set of leagues from one nation... On FM12 I had no such problems. V. Disappointed...

Sorry, I don't know if the amount of leagues can be seen anywhere after starting the game, and you better believe I'm not gonna count how many leagues the game has (maybe someone can tell me?)

My approximate player count however is 172000, recommended for my system would be 125000. Estimated game speed is half a star :D

It's certainly not fast, but I've always played with every possible league, if possible. Maybe I have too much time...

You are talking FM13 here, right?..

For FM12 I could play with an approx 300k db, but Fm13 won't let me start a new game with more than 100k, a window tells me to reduce below 100k. How do I get around this? Have I missed an option somewhere?
