Windows 7: Assassin's Creed specs?

Assassin's Creed specs?

I'm thinking about getting Assassin's Creed (The first one, not AC2). I had conflicting sources telling me what should and shouldn't work.

My specs work out fine except for two things:
1. I have a Pentium 4 processor. The specs say I need a dual core processor. I've looked at what other people have said and they say it should work without one. I just wanted to verify that before I put my money into the game.

2. I am running Windows 7 (32-bit). The specs say Windows XP/Vista (only). Does that mean Windows 7 won't work?

Thanks a lot, guys.

Try this website Can You Run It. Just choose the game you want and it will scan your system's hardware and tell you if you're able to run the chosen game.

I LOVE assassins creed! (got number 2 pre-purchased )
I have assassins creed currently installed on my Win7 machine at the moment and it runs fine.
your hardware should also be ok to 'run' the game.

I will say though with your hardware, you wont be able to run it at top notch or even high end graphics (shame too cos the game looks awesome maxed out) so you will have to settle for medium to lowish graphics if you dont want to have to your fps below 30.

the game is quite cpu and graphic intensive, which is why they want you to run it with a dual core.

That cpu will bottleneck the game.

Everlong18, I tried the website before and it never finished installing the Java thing or whatever. I'll try it again.

Thanks sleek. Just wondering, you're saying because of the CPU it won't work as well? Or because of my graphics card?

Frostmourne, I have no idea what you're saying. What does "bottleneck" mean? [/noob]

Thanks for the responses, guys.

If you were to get a the best CPU in your system right now, you still wouldnt be able to run it maxed because your vid card just isnt capable.
That said, if you left your CPU and really beefed up your vid card, you still wouldnt be able to run it maxed because the CPU is not powerful enough.

So in short, its not just one holding you back, but both. However, itl be more the CPU than the video card.

Ok, that's what I thought. Now, another question: How hard would it be to buy a new CPU and put it into my computer? Apparently it's pretty tough, but still wasn't sure.

not on maxed settings
dunno bout medium settings

you should just try something between lowest and medium..

I'm not really comfortable with getting a new computer yet. It's really expensive, and I've moved to Windows 7 two times in the past month (long story).

Thanks for all your replies!

I'm done playing it, but does anyone know if you can run the game like most PC games to take up the whole screen instead of just the window? Or does Assassin's Creed only run in windowed mode?
