    Hey everyone... I'm not such a computer gamer but I just got a new laptop and want to find a fun game to play on it... its a Inspiron 1420 and I'll list the specs in a second... in general I want a fun strategy game where you develop a lot and eventually go to battle... I saw "Game of the Year" Civilization at Best Buy and thought it might be cool... any suggestions or opinions?

    Intel Core 2 Duo T7300 - 2.0 Ghz 800 FSB and 4 mb cache
    2.00 GB of ram
    NVIDIA GeForce 8400 M GS
    14.1 inch screen
    Vista

    is anything else relevant?

    age of empires 3? command and conquer 3? supreme commander? empire earth 2? civilization 4?

    they're all good but i'm not sure how they would work on your laptop.

    How about Warcraft 3 and Starcraft? They're old games, but lots and still my favorite RTS's.

    what do you guys think about Medieval II Total War...

    is it a good game?

    would it run fine on my system (no lags)?

    Medieval Total War 2 is really a good game. Just look at the different ratings everywhere. Its a mix of real-time strategy (the battles) and turn-based strategy (the empire's management part).

    It should run quite well, but not on max (I can't even run it on max)

    I think Age of Empires III is a great game. Yes, AOE is an RTS. There's a new expansion for AOE III arriving this fall adding Asian civilizations.

    Command & Conquer 3 is a great RTS as well. Starcraft II looks very promising.

    M2 is the best thing to turn up on my comp.

    would run fine on medium settings.
