What specs does it say on the box

Thanks, I am well aware what it says on the box, bizarrely I can read.
I am after a pc that is capable of running the game well, not only just with poor graphics and slow speed.
I would like someone who can reccomend a recently purchased pc etc

I think that 'kevscar'was wanting to know the specs of the game as "bizarrely" the information is useful in providing a helpful answer to your question.
"Bizarrely" most people will not be willing to help,if you find it difficult to answer a reasonable question without resorting to rudeness.

These are the original minimum specs

Operating System: Windows XP 32(service pack 2), Windows Vista 32 OS.
Processor: 2.4 GHz Single Core Intel or AMD equivalent processor.
System Memory: 1GB RAM (XP) 2GB RAM (Vista).
Graphics Card: 256MB DirectX 9.0c compatible video card (shader 2.0 or higher).
Sound Card: Directx9.0c compatible sound card.
Windows compatible mouse & keyboard.

maybe i came across quite rude, i apologise for that, but i read answer as just read box specs which i had obviously done

i would get a dual core cpu and 4g memory as the battles when there are a lot of troops cause slowdown of framerates. there are cheap i3 dual cores now.

also a better graphics card would help 256mb is really low. 512 definetly more if you can afford it. Make sure it's not an integrated graphics card then you can always upgrade it later.
