Your PC Specifications for Battlescape

A topic to share either the current specifications of your computer to be used in Battlescape or additional setup specifications you are debating to add before kickstarter. Copy & paste the print below and fill in some blanks.

This is not a bad idea if it helps I-Novae get an idea of what kind of machines their potential consumers are using.

However, me being a poor uni student still, I currently only have a laptop that is a couple of years old. Still, it’s doing well for me so far.

Motherboard: No idea
CPU: Intel Core i3-2350M (2.3 GHz x2)
Ram: 8 Gb
Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce GT 630M
Hard Drives: Presumably some form of memory.
OS: Windows 8.1
Power Supply: Electricity? Or possibly evil spirits.
Case: … it’s a Toshiba laptop…

Edit: Discourse apparently didn’t like my attempt at slightly different formatting. Oh well.
And it seems I use the word “potentially” too much.

Motherboard: ASRock H81M-GL
CPU: Intel Core i5-4440 (3.1GHz)
Ram: G.Skill DIMM 8 GB DDR3-1333
Video Card: MSI GTX760 OC Twin Frozr
Hard Drives: Samsung 840 EVO 2,5" 250 GB (+2.5TB in external drives)
OS: Linux Mint Debian Edition (Main), WIndows 7 Professional 64-bit (Gaming for non-Linux games)
Power Supply: Thermaltake Hamburg 530W
Case: Does this matter? :stuck_out_tongue:

I’m also a student. I also own a tablet, smartphone, and laptop. Comes with my field of study. Not cheap, but I work alongside, so there’s that. :smiley:

Oh man, I built this thing recently enough that I remember most of this stuff!

Motherboard: GA-Z87X-UD3H Rev. 1.x
CPU: i5 4670K
Ram: 8 GB 1866 MHz (hopefully will be up to 16 GB by year’s end)
Video Card: None yet. Whatever works.
Hard Drives: ADATA 128 GB SX900 SSD, WD 3 TB Cavalier Green
OS: Windows 8.1 Update 1
Power Supply: Corsair TX650
Case: Corsair T230 in Battleship Grey


I don’t see any useful information in providing the Case, Motherboard and Power Supply to I-Novae Studios. Monitor resolution and aspect ratios might also be useful.

CPU: AMD Athlon™ 7750 Dual-Core Processor × 2
Ram: 4GB(2x)
Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce 9600GT (ran Battlefield: BC2 on low/medium settings with this)
Hard Drives: 1TB & 0.5TB
OS: 64 bit Linux (Ubuntu), might run Infinity: Battlescape with WIne. The chance is even more likely if there is a OpenGL only option.
Min monitor resolution: 800x600
Max monitor resolution: 1280x1024
Monitor aspect ratio: 5/4 & 4/3

It is more intended for us as a place to discuss our hardware and to see what other fellow players will be using in-game.

CPU: I3 2100 3.1Ghz
Ram: 8gb DDR3
Video Card: GTX 660 OC 2gb
OS: Windows 7
Resolution: 1366x768

I was planning on changing my CPU, but Im surprised with how expensive they are these days.

CPU: Intel i5 4670K
Motherboard: ASUS Sabertooth Z87
RAM: 16GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600MHz
Video Card: Asus DirectCUII Nvidia GTX 780
Hard Drives: 1TB, 2TB, 3TB (yes, I have 3 HDDs)
OS: Windows 10/Linux Mint (dualboot)
Monitors: 2 x Dell 23" Ultrasharp IPS
Max Resolution: 1920x1080

CPU : Intel Core i7 2600K (@ 3.4 GHz)
Motherboard : Asus - P8Z68-V GEN3
RAM : 16 Gb DDR3 @ 667 MHz
Video Card : NVidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti
OS : Windows 7
Monitors : 2 screens, both 1920*1080

I’m considering to get another graphic card in a year or so, but not sure however if it’s worth to change as the motherboard / CPU. They seem to me strong enough to survive quite a few years yet :slight_smile:

I can tell you guys that the single most important component for Battlescape will be your GPU. The difference in visual quality between using a mid-range and enthusiast level video card will likely be significant.


So how does my GTX 760 stack up to the current performance? :smiley: Or anyone else’s hardware, for that matter.

You’re fine! No worries.

Motherboard: Asus cheapo
CPU: i5 2500k or something
Ram: 16 jiggabytes
Video Card: GTX 460
Hard Drives: 1.5tb total
OS: Win8
Power Supply: Corsair 500w
Case: Some uATX thing with a handle.


Surely you mean 1.21 jiggabytes.

Will Battlescape have the user option for graphics adjustments from low, medium & high or will it permanently be set on the same setting for everybody?

It will have low, medium, and high however if you want to be in the alpha test then it will be fixed at high until we have the time to build in proper scaling.


Motherboard: Asus Rampage IV Gene
CPU: Intel i7 4820K
Ram: Corsair Dominator Platinum 16GB 1866MHz
Video Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 970 SC

I just made mine over the winter holidays, I’m a student but justified it as experience for my Electronics & Software course ;).

Motherboard: Gigabyte Z87-HD3
CPU: Intel i5 4670k (OC at 4.4GHz)
Ram: Kingston 8gb
Video Card: Gigabyte AMD Radeon HD 7870 (OC 1100MHz)
Hard Drives: Kingston HyperX 120gb SSD (+ USB 3.0 External 1tb drive)
OS: Windows 8.1 (Free through University Dreamspark programme)
Power Supply: Corsair CX600 (600W)
Case: Antique White Systemax from 1995 (Nobody would steal a computer in this case right? :wink: )

Seriously? That’s awesome. I never even considered using an old tower case. I probably could have gotten a full computer for less than I paid for the case (not that I paid much for my case…)

ASUS’s copper heatsinks are incredible.
