Hi,

I am in the market for a new pc & have a question about CIV 4 & memory.

Would CIV benefit from 12gigs of memory?

Thank you for the response, ori.

The OS will be 64bit, of course. I do play BTS so will I have to change anything in the .exe files? Or will it automatically recognize & use the additional memory?

you do not need to change anything in the BtS exe - it already recognizes large memory addresses - I do not know how large since this flag is designed for up to 3GB (from the standard 2GB) in 32bit operating systems. However I guess it will use as much as it needs to with your system ;)

edit: note this means 3GB used by the game not overall...
edit2: oh I found it:
- A 32bit process compiled LARGEMEMORYAWARE running on a 64bit x64 Windows OS can address 4GB of Virtual Address Space.

So BtS will use up to 4GB of RAM - anything above that is for other programs :)
