Thanks for the reply. Yeah the system will have a 11th Gen Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 11800H (8-Core, 24MB L3 Cache, up to 4.6GHz with Turbo Boost Technology). It is one of those new X17 systems.unless you going to play Star Citizen you probably don't need 32gb of ram
even if it looks good
its kind of pointless unless you do video editing.
Got nothing to say about gpu, if you can afford it, why not.
what are rest of details of laptop?
If it's anything like Civ, it'll also need a CPU that is planned for release around 2100!Gal Civ 3 might use that much
If you're planning to hold onto it for 5-7 years, and it has the best possible CPU and cooling, then no, not overkill.overkill?
Yeah I usually keep systems for that period of time or longer now that I don't build my own systems anymore. I figured I just ask to see what the consensus on hardware vs what futures games would need. Thanks.If it's anything like Civ, it'll also need a CPU that is planned for release around 2100!

except Star Citizen.wow cool good computer specs ... I'm sure you can play every game with the current maximum graphics smoothly ....
Yeah, I often did that in Civ4—2-3 opponents on a large Islands map set to extra, with high sea level. This usually means each player gets their own island and there'll be no contact until ocean sailing near mid game, and there'll be 1-2 Barbarian islands for later colonization.if I set it up with just myself and two others, I can sit in the explore/expand/exploit phases for a crazy long time!
