I'm usually anti-alienware just because I never liked how much you got for what you pay; but this looks like a decent enough desktop. Aside from the fact that it's in an ITX form factor which will make upgrades difficult if/when you want to this will run most games on high settings if you get at least the i5 CPU.

I reccomend you to make your own PC. Pre-Build pc's are much more expensive.

No. Not for £600. That is a rip off for 6GB RAM a 645 and an i3 processor.

Probably around the same if you try. For the price of that pc you can probably go out and build a full tower. I recommend using pcpartpicker.com as it'll make sure all the parts are compatible.

Lol, I'm not surprised you're making it for Rome II. It's gonna be such a good game >:D

I think it exceeds the recommended specs, but it's still not a guarantee that you'll be able to run it well at maximum settings.

Why not Endrane?

And yeh it's going to probably be on of the most successful strategy games of all time. They said pre orders exceed total sales of Shogun 2 I think

I don't think recommended = maximum. I think it just means that the recommended specs are there for a more-or-less general benchmark for where you will find a balance between good performance and good graphics. The recommended specs say a DX 11 enabled card with only 1GB memory, which would include the mid to low-end DX 11 cards, which surely won't be able to run Rome II at max settings.

I just got Shogun 2 with all DLCs from the Steam Summer Sale and it's great, hopefully I'll be one of those pre-orders for Rome II soon Very Happy

I might go with deathdealerr recommended setup then. One question though

I currently have a http://www.dell.com/uk/p/inspiron-580/pd

Would it be cheaper to upgrade this pc an if so what could go in there?

I don't know what you mean now xD

If you wanted to upgrade the GPU you would have to upgrade the CPU and therefore motherboard as well

I want a new graphics card on it so do I need to just get a 500W PSU and then get a new graphic card or what?

My current is a 300W so would I be able to put any 500W PSU in or would it not be compatible with the PC ( I have the link of the PC and its specs a few posts ago)

And if I can get a new PSU would I then be able to get a good graphics card or would games still be bad as its not a gaming pc?
