Hi, Apologies in advance if this is in the wrong place, just want to get a general idea from other AC users and what system setups they run. After my stuttering debut on multi-player yesterday I'm just wondering what sort of specs people are running to get good performance out of this game. If I explain what I am using at the moment. It's a family PC, quad core with 4GB RAM. Never intended for gaming was just bought as a special for general work on. To enable gaming I just bought a budget 3D card GTX 660. The PC doesn't belong to me so not really wanting to spend a fortune. Raceroom I can run almost max on everything without any issues, except when I'm in multiplayer races with 18-20 cars, then it starts to suffer. GSCE runs great, even with everything switched on and almost 30 cars. Which I admit surprised me! If I'm on my own (or with two or three cars) AC will run with almost all the settings at high. If something crazy happens (at the start or cars spin) this obviously causes problems and it drops to 5-10 FPS I do want to get my own setup but would like some opinions on what would be best to aim for. Obviously faster is better but I'm torn between a desktop or a gaming PC. Why? Because I would also use it for graphics work as well. If it's a desktop machine it's more or less going to just end up as a game station plugged into the TV. Two suggestions for your feedback; http://www.aorus.com/x7pro.aspx This is the SLI Aorus Laptop, seems to be pretty much on par with a top gaming desktop. Or this which is a Chillblast special http://www.chillblast.com/Chillblast-Fusion-Pandora-Gaming-PC.html I tend to keep my PC's for 6 or 7 years so don't mind paying the prices. Obviously the main difference between the desktop and the laptop is just the "general" speed of the components (CPU, memory speed, etc) So the question is quad core enough power for high(ish) detail or do I need to go six cores for the game to run super smoothly? Probably my only other option is to still get the desktop and in a years time get myself a Macpro for the design work! haha. Thanks, Andrew.
