I am interested in trying WWT as a Windows PC installation on my Win7 Home Premium 64-bit machine. I notice on the WWT site there are some pretty specific graphics requirements, and am not sure if my system is up to it before I attempt
an install of WWT 5.1 Gold. So if you can determine if my system is seriously deficient so as to be unfit to run WWT 5.1, I will perhaps fall back to another earlier option. I wouldn't mind just a slower than optimum system, but would like to avoid
a critical failure.
My custom-built PC is about 3 years old and does have some pretty capable features such as a fast quad core processor (i5-3570K). The system B.O.M. supplied by the builder tells me it has some implementation of CrossFireX. It is running
PCI Express 3.0 video hardware.
I had hoped to include for you screen captures from the directX DxDiag utility readout on my system but no way to attach them. So manually copied . . . 1) it indicates some 3D capability being enabled as well. 2) 8192Mb
of system DDR3 RAM. 3) Running DirectX 11. 4) BioStar TZ77B system on an ATX MOBO. 5) display driven by Intel HD 4000. 6) in connection with display specs, note says total memory = 1696Mb (is this dedicated graphics memory??)
7) Additional DirectX features listed as enabled = DirectDraw Acceleration, and AGP Texture Acceleration.
Anyway, hope these may be useful in rendering an opinion on my chances of success with trying a WWT 5.1 Gold installation. I appreciate your valuable experience as applied to these questions.
