Default Required Specifications

Friends,

ok, so I am new to gaming on PC's, and a friend of mine suggested the upcoming Men of War as its almost a virtual version of the Flames of War tabletop miniature gaming system that I play.

But not being computer savy, I have to ask, will it work on my computer?

System Specs

Pavilion a1712n

Athlon 64 (O) 3800+ 2.4 GHz
GeForce 6150 LE
Memory 1 GB (upgradable to 4 if necessary)
Hard Drive 320 GB

Running Vista as an O.S.

Thanks in advance for helping this Noob out,

J....

As far as I know it will work without problem on youre PC, but it is recomended to have 2gig's of memory.

Game will play, but this video-card is very slow. You will need to turn everything to minimum.

Why don't you go here and test your PC against a few games to see how it stands up?

ok, did as TheGrinde suggested and checked out Can You RUN it.

I used Faces of War, since it seems to be a predecessor and my machine, as is, landed inbetween "Minimum" and "Recommended".

Areas of weakness were the CPU itself (one above minimum) and the video card, which was previously suspect (again, 1 above minimum)

Assuming that there are no significant changes in the programming, I would guess that MOW can play, but as suggested above, perhaps another GB of memory is in store. (although there was no issue there)

Also, not being computer savy, if I installed an external video card, is it hard to get the computer to run off of it? Or is it more just "plug, few clicks of a mouse, and play"?

Thanks to all of you for tolerating this "Non-Gamers" questions,

J....

As far as I know there is no external video card but I could be wrong and not informed with the latest technology.
What I sugest is, you try the game out here http://www.digitalmindsoft.eu/forums...p?f=119&t=1500 for multiplayer and here http://www.menofwargame.com/demo.phtml for single player and you can know if it works for you. BTW if FOW runs on youre machine the MOW will un better , it is mutch better optimised. Have funn and see you on the game
