What kind of system do I need to play? I'm considering buying the game.
Maybe its because 32bit systems can handle only 4gb of memory, and this goes for all memory. You have now 4+1gb and if you are using virtual memory, it takes it part too. So, if you have 1gb total video RAM, 2gb virtual, you can only have 1gb onboard RAM. You need 64bit OS to use all your memory. Higher amound of RAM onboard, more you need to be sure RAM is supported by your MoBo.I had numerous memory errors which somewhat i resolved with their programers over the weeks since its been out, though im sure alot of it has to do with Vista, so make sure you dont have vista...
Try this link, it tells your current situation and after test, what you need. Just select Age of Conan from drop down list
Its not the bible, it gives you direction. I run AoC smoothly, but it didnt do so till I went to 64bit OS and tweaked it. Oh, I play WoW with toasterI wouldnt trust this site that much. It says my computer can not run WoW:BC but yet i play it every night with a friend just fine, no lag at all. Just saying.
