    CPU = dual quad core Intel Xeon 2.5GHz
    Mem = 4GB
    Graphics: Quadro FX 4600*

    And performance is... disappointing. I run everything on ultra and all effects apart from depth of field switched on, and battles run at a steadyish 17 fps with full stacks, and the campaign map at a rock solid 12. To be honest, this frame rate is on the low side but the game is perfectly playable and still looks lovely. I think the problem is the programme only uses one out of the 8 cores. One of them runs at just about 100% and the other 7 sit idle. Which is annoying... On the other hand AI turns don't take as long as some others' I've read about, and I only ever get ctds from automerging units. No memory leaks or anything...

    * very powerful gfx card with 768Mb, but it's designed for CAD and 3d modelling, not gaming

    in my case: a quad-core
    8 GB RAM (I know, it's an overkill)
    2 512 MB Radeon video cards crossfired

    The game runs very smooth for me (I have not seen ANY frame-rate drops) on all ultra settings with exception of unit size which I keep at Huge rather than Ultra. I just find the Ultra-sized units quite unwieldy.
