Hi started playing the game on 1st Oct , the play was so bad, lagging very badly , so went looking for the causes, first thing I found was a benchmark test you could do for your system, the result was 723, hmmm seems to be 4 times slower then mim, crap!
So then started looking at requirements. Upgraded ge 8600 to gtx470, windows7 32 to 64 bit, and ram from 3.6g to 6g , improved my benchmark to 1500, according to my spec of the graphic card it was atleast 28 to 38 times faster then the ge 8600, so what happened,
more internet searching. Found that my mobo only surported up to 2000mHz my processor is an amd Athlon 64x2 5200+, 2700 MHz 2 cores, so losing preformance here mobo socket is am2.
I am still playing the game, though at times I have no idea if any of my action mean anything due to lag..
Then after more reading about the game I've come across the idea this game is designed for
the PS3 and in the PS3 nearly all memory, processing and graphics is done in the cpu. A 8 cell/core device, the closest fit to this proccessor would be a 6 core amd or intel device.
Costs are looking very grim , $300 for AMD Phenom II X6 1090T(3.2GHz)AM3 9MBCache125W, a good mobo socket am3 $250 , ram DDR3 6 to 8 gig up to $250, power supply 800 to 1000 watts $250, this to play a game that I didn't like very much just now.
Ok so at sometime I know I need to upgrade, but I don't like being forced to buy at this point in time, as what can only be classed as top shelf items.
I already have spent game $90, graphics card $388, power supply $75 and hours and hours searching and rage at the game itself.
So what do I do commit myself to another PC build, or just drop this game.
will keep this updated for when I make up my mind.
