  1. well am wondering if i will be able to run age of empires 3 on med settings on my system. here are some specs.

    celeron d processor at 2.93 ghz (I know it's not a gamer's choice but its a pretty decent processor depiste what people say)
    512MB RAM
    149 GB Hardrive
    windows xp media centre edition 2005
    my current video card is a crappy onboard S3 card, but am getting a nvidia 6600 really soon.

    so will I be able to run on medium settings?

    Everything should be fine, except for your vid card. I'm not even sure you'll be able to run it with a good framrate on all low settings. But you might be able to pull it off with an ok framerate.

    If 6600 is ok ATI 9600 should be good?

    Pentium 630, 3Gig.
    ATI Radeon 9600 Pro
    1.5 Gigs RAM
    SATA Drives

    6600 is better than radeon 9600, 6600 is like a radeon 9800, get me? you should consider a 9800.

    6600, 9600 etc.

    Right, I was thinking of the 5600
    Well I hope my 9600 can at least run the game.
    a graphics card was not the top priority when I built my budget box ($80 for the 9600 Pro 256).

    It will run it fine. I was talking about your crappy onboard one dammit.

    ..

    A Radeon 9600 will work fine.

    I have the demo and I can run it on medium-high settings with my other computer (which has a radeon 9200 with drivers) and it gets about 45-50 fps.

    I personally would reccomend an Ati card like the 9800. They are better. BUt it's up to you they both are good cards. 9800 and 6600 I mean.

    lol, yes ATI is good, but they are older cards. thats why i prefer NVIDIA, they are both good cards tho. anyways yeah my current onboard one is a piece of crap.
