Hello all. I've been ghosting this site for about a week now trying to decide if I should by or not. Pretty close to buying but haven't decided on digital or box with free digital. After buying Elemental last year on release, I am a little reluctant to by a new PC game due to my PC being older as well. So 2 questions-

1) Digital or shell out another 15 imperial credits for the box
2) Do you(anyone) think my PC can run this - Win XP AMD Athlon 64 Processor 3700 and 1 Gig of ram

Welcome, Gameius Maximus. 

1. It's entirely up to you. I see the extra money for the box as more of a donation to the developer. Once you have the digital download, you can create your own disc or copy it to a flash drive. I always buy the box myself.

2. It'll run, but probably not with the maximum number of stars. You might have to experiment a bit with the many game settings to get it play smoothly.

If you're buying the expansion, Return of the Shakturi and if you get it in the next couple of days, I'd advice against installing the latest Beta patch, This is only available through the websites' members area. Instead, download the latest official patch using the games' launcher.

Hope to see you playing soon.

welcome to the community
aside from Igard's excelent advice I also suggest putting a hold on the beta patches, a new official one is due next week


...Igniting stellar cores....Recharging reactors...Recalibrating hyperdrives....

Return of the Shakturi is a must in my view.DW vanilla never really worked correctly.

#2 is the same as my alternate System, you should be fine up to 400 Star Systems, maybe even 700.
My current is just a little Beefier than this (FX & 2 GB).
