Hi there! The specs I posted in that thread will be fine for playing those types of games. In fact, it would probably be major overkill. If you've got 1K to burn, by all means, build that rig, but otherwise you could cut down a lot. I don't have time to go over the whole thing ATM, but for starters I strongly recommend cutting down the CPU - I only posted that because OP insisted on an i7. You'd almost certainly be fine with an i3-3225 at $150CAD, or AMD's Phenom II 965, at a very nice $89CAD. The prices will be less in america. Feel free to message me if you need any more help
Hello! I've been looking for parts to build a new computer, and I saw this post you made in the technology forums. I was wondering if those specs could run some newer games, such as Civilization 5 and Rome Total War 2. I know next to nothing about computer hardware and google isn't really helping me find out much!
