There isn't much that is parallelized. You can use perfmon on your computer to observe both the process and the individual threads within the...
Running a single thread for workers isn't really a problem, providing you run a worker thread per computer player / city state.
It's true that...
Right. I'd actually go a step further.
There should be a strategic AI per game AI, akin:

In the interest of bringing some more hard evidence to the table, here's a perfmon graph of Civ5 running while using OP's save game.
If the CPU is not 100%, then there's plenty of leftover power to run FRAPS.
I have a Xeon 5506 quadcore and have much the same experience -- my...
As does your gross hyperbole.
There are many people who are perfectly content to play the game and wait for patches. You fall quite nicely in...
A good example is producing an Infantry unit without having Rifling as a tech. But you do have replaceable parts.

What law says that someone is not allowed to run a Steam game on two computers?
Steam allows and, in fact, encourages such behaviour -- they just...

The various gameplay items hardly bother me at all. My biggest complaint about civ5 is the constant crashes.
I have a 1 1/2 year old, an 8 month...
OLD cpu = retail circa 2 years ago?
MODERN cpu = retail circa today?
Thanks. What a pointless argument.

As the previous poster said, most likely it's virtual memory that is the issue at hand. In a best case scenario, your paging file should be equal...
You should start with posting your specs, as that is more helpful in diagnosing your issues than your whining.

I bought a GTX 460 for $220 CAD yesterday for this game alone.
The game was generally running fine on my Quadro 1800 (came with my Dell, but I...
