My apologies if this has already been posted, but I could not make the search button work. :scratch:

Does anyone know what the estimated system requirements for the PC version of Battlestations: Pacific will be?

I hope my 8400GS can handle it :/

Yes a Forum is already set up but this is fine.

Your 8400 would probably run it on medium with the water quality on low.

We don't know system requirments yet, but my guess is.
Dual Core or higher
2 Gigs Ram
256mb bare minimum 512mb preferred graphics card

If you have the money her is good budget graphics card you could get

WOW! That is a cheap card.

Is it better than 8400?

My 8400 is 512MB DDR2.

I have Single Core 2.4Ghz AMD Athlon 64 Core Processor

2GB DDR PC3200 RAM

NVIDIA by EVGA Geforce 8400GS 512MB DDR2 VRAM

Would That 3450 Radeon be able to run the game on high?

O and where is the thread that was already started?

Yah it has a faster core clock than the 8400.

Your processor is the big problem not your graphics card.

I can assure you that one will not run BSP

Are you shure it isn't dual core?

Processor isnt even as important as the GPU. Yes it's a single-core, this computer was made in the age where dual-core was the new and expensive thing.

I play games like Battlefield2142 and World In Conflict with this processor and the 8400. 2142 on meduim-high, world in conflict low-meduim. both get an average of around 30-60fps with that.

So I don't see why a 2.4Ghz single core woulden't be able to run this. I guess the water is realy why you need a better processor?

So you mean I can't even run this game with my processor?

Water and Explosions all gpu. AI control, flying, and physics all cpu.

I surisously doubt you can run the game with that cpu

However, when we do get the offical specs that is the only way to know.

So don't let your hopes down yet. And besides if you have a intel base board a 3.2ghz pentium 4 is like 40 bucks.

Owww :( Sorry dude socket 939 is discontinued.
So basically what happened was AM2 took S939 out back, with a rifle in hand and next thing you hear is a gun blast. AM2 says that S939 is now on a happy farm with all the other sockets that have been "retired".
Your best bet is ebay you can probably find them pretty easy i keep looking for one any anyway.

Gah, I found a better one at 3btech.com, and I don't like using used stuff anyway.

Besides I don't know how to install a Processor, is the fan a part of the processor? I never figured out where is the physical processor? Just that little chip thats like a 2 inch square is the entire processor?

Oh and what is Heat Sink :)

Their Site has mixed reviews but mostly positive.

What does the number after the processor speed name mean. Like AMD Athlon 64 X2 "4800+", what does the 4800+ mean?

Thanks for your interest though :) I Realy appreciate it. Now since im a 14-year old child with $200 worth of old games and stuff that I can sell on Ebay I need to find if I can sell that stuff to buy the processor and miraculously install it. :D

If you found a better one good for you! Just make shure it is a socket 939.

The number is just the model number. 4800+ means is an updated version of the 4800 version

The heat sink is the large finned metal thing with a fan on it. This is included with the processor unless you get the OEM version. That version just comes without the heat sink. Yes the processor is the little silver thing it sits under the heat sink.

There is a nice video showing how to install a cpu

P.S. you don't any antstaic braclet, just touch some metal before you start working.

Thanks a Bunch. Yeah I got some experience installing RAM, GPU, and PSU because I upgraded my PC. Originally it was like 6150LE integrated card and 1GB Ram. A little outdated by today's standards but w/e a little upgrading and it's fine :)

Now the Specs on the processor on that site says:

"Please note that the AMD Athlon 64 processor comes in 754, 939, and 940 pin (AM2) configurations. Please be sure that you select a processor that is compatible with your motherboard. Opened Retail Box Processors cannot be returned due to compatibility concerns"

Does that mean that this Processor can work with Socket 754, Socket 939 (For my Motherboard) And 940 pin? What does the 940 pin mean?

Thanks again for your help, I appreciate it, and I'm learning things along the way :)

And If I get a CPU without the Heatsink and Fan, I can just use the new processor with my stock Heatsink and Fan?

No socket 939 means that the cpu has 939 little pins, so 747 has 747 pins and so one. Only 939 cpus go in 939 mother boards.

And yes you can use you original heat sink, or buy a new for better cooling they are pretty cheap.

BestBuy is a bunch of low life overpriced idiots.

Lol, they charge way too much for their stuff, and their geek squad sucks, and I don't think they even offer installation.

Circuit City charges stuff for decent prices and hav various services like ram and PSU and GPU installation, setups and other things.

I'm gonna check if they can install the CPU for me.

Yeah installing the CPU isn't too hard I'm just worried I'm gonna damage something.

These are tricky question since a lot depends on your expectation about the level of the graphic detail and screen resolution.

Short answer is that most probably it will work - at least on the lowest resolution and detail level.

This is a standard upgraded basic computer with stock cooling system I dunno if it would be able to handle an 8800 n e way.

Yes that is right it is SLi (Scalable Link Interface) With Nivdia, and crossfire with Ati.

The 8660gt is sli compatable. The only thing you need is enough power and a mother with two pci-e slots. Oh and a sli bridge with is $3.
8800gt is a great graphics card but it is is not the best. However it is Nvidas best card for the price, seeing how it can run crysis on high.

Yes you can run that card. Nvida recomands a miunmum of 450watts so you are good. How much colling does you case have, does it have at least one exaust fan (not counting power supply)? That card is a low profile card so it does not exaust directly to outside, it is usally not that good to have all that hot air sitting in your sytem. But if you don't have an exaust fan you can always run your comp with the side off.

And yes it would work with single core.

Are you not going to but that dual core?

Well right now I have the standard case fan on the back of my case that is heat activated, it turns on and off ocasionally depending on how hot my case is. Then I got the Fan on my heatsink. And the Fan on my PSU, but that dosen't actually provide cooling to case I don't think. Then of course the fan on the graphics card.

Now when you say low profile what do you mean?

Now how much power (In Watts) does the 8800GT take up?

I only have one PCI-E slot

Now, woulden't the 8800GT need TOO much power, to the point where my motherboard cannot channel enough energy to the PCI-E slot, or does that not matter.

Now as you know I have an AMD motherboard, that has a 24 pin connector and then a 4 pin connecter by the PCI-E and PCI slots, what is that for?

Now woulden't I need to upgrade my cooling system since running without the case is not an option?
Tis my side case.http://i269.photobucket.com/albums/jj53/Madhound12/cool.jpg

That case provides plenty of ventaltion.

It is funny the expensive 8800gt is 70 bucks more expense and it only has a 25mhz core increase, everingthing else is the same. So i would stick with the cheap card.

Low profile means the card only takes up one slot.
This would be a high profile card notice how it takes up to slots, because it exaust its hot air directly out the back.

Did you just say that the card uses 250 Watts?

Before I ran on a 300W PSU without the extra card, and used the integrated card.

I guess dats like I used 300W before, then I have 200W to spare! And I need 250W nonononono me scared, even if the motherboard, disk drive, harddrive, ect. dosent use up 300W in total :(

Me scared me no gonna put out enough power, cause I heard that some PSU will say 500W but dont actually put out 500W. Me scared more! :O

And Like I heard I need like some kind of voltage on the 12V rail or something like that plz explain.

btw how much better is 9800 series compared to the 8800 series.

It is fine trust me :thumbsup: I read reveiws of people running dualo cores and this thing with a 450 watt psu.

Umm rails are hard to explane over the net.:scratch:
Basaclly what a power supply dose is converts your house's AC current to DC able to used by the computer. A power supply uses converter rails to do this. Some Power supplys have four rails and other have one really big rail. All power supplys put out the same amount of amps on thir rails. So you don't need to worry about that.

Some manufacters are sleasy and use a differnet mathmatical algaritham to determan their volatage. The say the psu is 300 when it is really 262, this is beacuase they don't account for their conversion loss. Don't worry antec is honest company thier psu puts out exactly 500 watts.

So get that card and stop worrying.:D

The 9800gt is worse than the 8800gt. The 8800gt has a 50mhz core clock higher. a 1000mhz memeroy clock higher. The 9800gt has a more andvance chip set or some marketing jibersh like that.

So stick with 8800gt.

Lol YOU WILL. You're gonna like Marc Frechette.

I'm Googy on the forums, helped with what I knew about video cards and ram and what not.

Umm, do the fees for selling stuff on Ebay come out of the price of whatever you are selling, or do you have to pay a fee out of pocket as soon as you put the item up on for sell?

Out of what you are selling All that stuff you listed sounds like it would fetch a good price. Shipping is the killer, buying the boxes and foam nuts. I order a lot of PC parts and save thier boxes and put their foam nuts in big plastic bag for future use. Go on youtube and search how to sell stuff on ebay, i am shure you could find stuff there.

My name is the same on the CC forums.

The fees come out of what your selling. But if you don't sell anything you still have to pay the fees.

All the packing supplys can come from Office Depot, Office Max , those kind of stores.

Is this a desk top or laptop? Your processor is porbally going to stop you from having smooth smooth performance. Two gigs of ram is usally the minimum on these games. Video card will probally run everything at low with mabey ship detail on medium.

Your Ram and and CPU is more thane nough to run BS:P.

However your 8600GT will prevent you from running the game on maximum high.

I would buy an 8800GT, I believe that would would be able to run it on high, and the 8800GT will be greatly complimented with the quad core and 4GB of RAM.

Just make sure your Power Supply is enough, the 8800GT sucks up power like a 230Watt light bulb. Lol.

then i might as well just a follow's a gamer's ideas and put high detail on important things ( units, ocean etc) but put low on shadows or not important details

that's whats bull i can't upgrade my graphics card cause i'm just a kid
and if i were to get 8800GT that would be like $150 and still need to know how to install it
and plus it'll cost like $40 bucks for people at futureshop to install it for ya

Well in all the interviews the devs discussed that will be a hardcore game graphics wise.

crysis will probally hold the record for most damnding game. This game will proabally have the graphics intesity of CoD 4 and World in Conflict on high settings.
