Installed the beta finally, clicked play and got the worst message ever!!!

System Video Card Fails Minimum Specs -- Warhammer Will Now Terminate

Can't say I wasn't furious after all the crap i already went through! Well I'm looking at getting a card and i've come down to 2 choices. A overclocked 8600 or a normal 8800.

Here is the 8600 I'm looking at: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130311

My second choice is the 8800, but although it is relativley cheap now, like $150, i don't know if my computer will be able to handle it, let alone if i'll be able to fit it in the case! I'm also on a budget, with gas, car insurance, and all those wonderfully high priced luxuries. So the cheaper the better.

So i was wondering if i'd be able to run Warhammer using the 8600 Overclocked, on high settings or medium. I'm not very knowledgeable when it comes to computer stuff, so any advice would help a lot. Thanks in advance!

I have a 8800gt and it runs max @ 30ish fps, but I do have a bad processor. Since I am in a good mood, here is a 8800gt for 96$.

I dont know when the deal will end so.. The $50 mail n rebate is huge.

What kind of computer do you have? First you need to know if your computer can support a PCI Express video card and the power requirements you need to meet for it.

I build computers for a living so I'd be glad to help you. I'd personally go for the 8800GT, it will be a better investment in the future, but thats if it fits in your computer and you can support it.

I guarentee you that you wont be able to have the game at high settings. Trust me you want to go with the 8800gt.

It's A HP Pavilion a630n

Intel Pentium 4 Processor With Hyperthreading

1 Gig Ram

2.80 GHz

PCI Express x16 Graphics PEG Slot

And it doesn't have to be the HIGHEST setting, but at least medium medium high! I'm also looking into upgrading to 2gigs of RAM, but that I can actually manage to do on my own
