Will game support Crosfire graphic cards? Like mine Radeon HD 5970? I mean really support so we can leave (A.I. - crossfire) ON and there is no bugs playing game with it. Lots of games dont support crossfire and/or have problems with it...

tnx for reply

What are the system req's for maxed out settings (1080p)?

Well it depends what you mean by maxed out...if you mean 30 frame minimum at all times with max settings and 8aa or something you will probably need a gtx285 or HD5850.

If you mean 60 frame minimum with 32csaa....then you will probably need a gtx580 or HD6970.

Just look at the recommended requirements for any game....they are always well below what is capable of running a game maxed.

The recommended GPU for BFBC2 was a gtx260...you need much more than that to max it out.

I think the minimum specs are quite reasonable, people cant expect to play the latest games on really old pcs. Being able to run this game on a mid-range(Core2Duo 2Ghz and 8600GTS) desktop from like 4 years ago is very reasonable in my eyes.

512 mb VRAM? I think that's a bit excessive, especially since the other reqs (processor, RAM) are so low. I've actually never seen a game demand a 512 mb video card, so I hope that's a mistake on Ubisoft's part. For comparison, even the recently released Shogun 2 only specifies a 256 mb card. 512 just makes me think that the game engine isn't as optimized as it could be... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

@Dave
You can't be serious....in 2007 I bought a mid range GPU; an 8800gt. It had 512mb vram. That was 4 years ago...

This isn't a browser based game, it's a PC game.

Even if you were gaming on a 720p monitor ( which no one is these days ) you would still need a 512mb card to run any modern games.

My video card has 1.5gb of vram and it is 12 months old.

You can get a 1gb gt 240 for about $99...

The only people complaining are people with laptops and they have no right to complain...they should have known what they were buying. You don't buy a hatch back and complain when it can't go offroad in the sand dunes etc.

I can build a desktop for $500 that runs 3 times as fast as a $2000k laptop. It's just common sense really.

The reason why it is lite on the cpu and heavy on the GPU is because modern games are shader heavy. It is a fixed camera angle turn based game, that explains why it is lite on the cpu.

I challenge you to play heroes 5 with less than a 512mb video card at 1080p....it will be better optimised than H5 and better looking ( just look at any screenshot ).

Games these days usually required 1GB video card, like for starcraft 2, if you want good graphic setting, you need to have at least a 1GB card

DaventryGnome
03-20-2011, 07:31 AM
I disagree with both of the comments above.

For the record, I can play Starcraft II on HIGH settings at 1080p with 256mb of VRAM. I agree it's not ULTRA, but it still looks pretty damn good. You absolutely do NOT need 1gb of RAM to get that game pretty (Blizzard are gods when it comes to optimization).

Also, as I mentioned in my original post, ALMOST NO current game requires 512mb RAM. I'm not complaining, just stating the facts. Take a look at Civilization 5, Shogun 2, Dragon Age 2, just to name a few. I can run all of these just fine, and the last time I checked, none were played in Internet Explorer or Firefox. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

Please show me a game whose MINIMUM system requirements include a 512mb video card...

Edit: I actually believe I'll be able to run Heroes VI just fine (given my experience with other recent games). I think it's likely that Ubisoft overestimated a bit, but there's also the possibility that those are indeed the reqs, which (again, given my experience with other titles) would make me believe that the game's just not as well-optimized as some others.

Just one quick example: in 2008 I saw some decent desktops stutter with cd projekt's The Witcher. These were machines that didn't have problems with any other graphics-heavy games of the time, which lead many (including reviewers) to conclude that the game wasn't properly optimized. And lo and behold, a year later cd projekt released the "Enhanced Edition" which increased performance across the board, unequivocally proving that the original release wasn't as smooth as it could have been.

@Dave I think its too early too say if its unoptimized just because it requires 512mb vram. It depends what the lowest graphic settings are. It may be very optimized but you cant run it with horribly bad graphics. But that remains to be seen. Still people can get a gpu that can run this game and pretty much any other for like $50 these days.

Edit: I believe Mafia 2 also requires 512 vram btw. Still most games run on 256 but they cant continue to do so forever.

DaventryGnome
03-20-2011, 11:07 AM
I agree it's too early to tell. I'm not saying it's unoptimized just yet (it's just a thought, an idea). I actually think I'll be able to run it just fine. I'm just saying that (regardless of how much a 512 card costs or what year we're in) I've yet to see any other developer require that kind of VRAM for a strategy game (and I say that more as a fact, not an opinion).

Mainly I just wanted to refute the notions of Starcraft requiring 1gb of VRAM to look good or of any Heroes fan confusing Heroes VI with FarmVille.

P.S. I think I've sufficiently expressed my opinion here, and as such I won't be commenting further. See you all in other, more worthwhile threads.

Just to clarify your inquiries, the VRAM from a GFX card is just needed to get bigger resolutions and better textures. The graphic engine they are using for MM:H6 isn't very new, all the opposite, it has some years behind it.

If you are planning to play the game in 800x600 (in case that small resolution is even supported by this new game) you won't be needing much vram xD

Any card in the last 2 generation of gpus have atleast 512mb of vram, and even the generation before that had very few cards with less(almost nonexistent). I dont see how that is too much to ask for. Still I think it might not require 512ram if your run on really low resolution, like 800x600 is not a reasonable resolution these days and the minimum specs probably takes a reasonable resolution into account.

It looks like I should be all set to run it on my laptop with the exception of the video card, not sure if it meets the requirements it's a Nvidia GeForce 310M. From what i can tell it looks like it should meet the requirements but if there is someone out there that is more familiar with video cards i would appreciate any feedback/confirmation. Thanks

Though it looks like I may just make the spec to run it, this does come at a bit of a surprise. I know people say you should get recent desktops to run today's games, but never for minimum detail on a strategy game. Sure, if it is the next Crysis action game, I could expect it. Still a little surprising for a turn-based strategy game to require a spec that even Crysis or Civ doesn't. It's not like someone is expecting full-screen PhysX plus tons of DX11 shavers and stuff for a turn-based strategy RPG. The real gameplay, in these games, are usually all the stuff under the hood. The math calculations to process outcomes. Stuff just about any machine can do these days, the rest is just eye-candy that has nothing to do with gameplay or the full immersion of it given these are top-down views. Still, high end graphics look pretty; just as long as they do provide the options for the large audience that generally only play strategies on PCs. And those folks aren't used to being quite on top of the *gaming spec* machine purchases.

As someone that almost exclusively plays strategy games, I absolutely disagree with us being on the low end when it comes to staying up to date with hardware.

Also a 8600GTS is hardly DX11 with physx. Heck it's a bloody mid range card from 5 years ago, surely any gamer should expect to have at least 5 year old mid range hardware to play the latest games... You can get graphics cards (especially used) that far outperform the requirement to play Heroes VI for under the price of the game.

foiden
05-30-2011, 09:15 PM
I never meant all strategy gamers. You may be one of the more exceptions. But considering strategy games usually barely have me upgrade much for them, like other genres, one can usually be a bit behind. Then again, you can't assume most of them would be using desktops or towers either.

Laptops have really taken a major share because you can take it with you. And in general a lot of them don't wont meet the requirements if and only if 256MB is left out of the minimum. It's just rare that a strategy game would take something above a more rather current major graphic-eye-candy game like Crysis 2 or something, that's all. To desktops, 512MB is common. To laptops, none but the special gaming laptops have it.

On the other hand, The Witcher 2 claims similar GPU memory requirements, and it seems to actually still run decently on some of these machines.

Starcraft 2 runs on pretty much anything out there, so it's hardly an indication of whether it will run heroes 6 (looking at the stated requirements).

I mean, all the recent games I haven't had a problem running. Is it because it's still buggy? :/

With latest drivers i5-650 (hd3000) runs beta just fine - choppy at 1280x1024 very high (but almost as fast as 8600GT 256MB), and pretty smooth after lowering some settings

HD560v ?! You probably meant : HD 5600.
Your laptop meets the official recommended requirements.
My only incertitude is your "Mobility" version of the 5600 :
I cannot evaluate how it will perform, in gaming, compared to a fully-featured desktop 5600.
But you should be OK.
If you experience framerate lag, reduce some graphical features, such as the resolution, anti-aliasing, shadows.
Test different graphical-option setups until you experience enjoyable framerates.

The video card has 512MB of video ram. THe sound stutters during the splash screen which is odd.

I ended changing resolution to 1600x1050 and playing on medium. There's a bit of lag and the sound is choppy. The game overall runs, it's just annoying.

08-19-2011, 04:26 PM
Have you tried 1440 X 900 ? Can you update your audio drivers ?

Also, if the sound is managed, in your computer, by "integrated" audio features on the motherboard, purchasing a "dedicated" audiocard -- such as a SoundBlaster -- could give you a better quality of sound. Some SB models are not expensive. A technician installs it & de-activates the integrated audio.

In my case, I would not tolerate audio stuttering & choppiness. If it happened, I would run to an expert computer-store.

phantomdestro
08-19-2011, 07:00 PM
I increased default sample rate when running in shared mode to 24 bit, 192000 Hz and that fixed the problem. Guess it was choppy because it had to downgrade the sound quality. THanks.

Your 1.60 GHz processor is way under the official minimum & recommended requirements.

2 GB of RAM on WinXP is OK ... but adding 1 GB would help.

Your videocard is more than enough.
Thus, your computer, for gaming purposes, is of unequal value : good videocard <--> relatively weak processor.

The problem is that upgrading to new processors will be hard with my motherboard.But i'll try to fix something.

As a funny thing....the game doesn't crashes on medium settings (i played it since the beta phase 2 started) but it started doing so when i switched to low settings.


And as off-topic,is there a special topic/section of the forum where i can post bugs/suggestions for Heroes 6?

First, a general question: is there a demo available for the game? I figure if my current pc can run the demo, it can run the game. If not, then I have time to plan for upgrades. Specs are as follows: Win 7 64 bit, AMD Athlon II X2 255 dual core, Nvidia GeForce 6150SE card, 5400 GB HD, 4GB DDR3 memory. It's been a while since I've played a pc RPG so I'm a little rusty on the needed specs and such. Don't know if demos are used that much as a test for compatability but if not, it might be a way to go. Thanks in advance.

I set it to low and still only a bit better improvement on the game speed / framerate. Hope this is problem only with the Demo and not the actual game.

Btw, I'm running on 1920x1080 resolution with low graphic setting of the game.

Even I have tried running 1366x768 (my laptop native) with low graphic setting, same result.

I really hate the Resources loading... please wait message when I switch to desktop and then back to game. Have to wait for like 3-4 min to complete loading back to the game.

Also, sometimes, once the game has been loaded, not all adventure map objects' model appear. Have to wait for like 1-2 min then only they are rendered out. Yet, I still can move the heroes around... WTH?

I hate resource loading myself.Makes alt+tabing a pain in the .... compared to Heroes 5.And even making it work in window mode makes it lag like hell.

The first beta version,would just slowlly load all the units/creatures.It took about the same time,but at least u could build/check talent trees while the stuff loaded.Now is like playing some kind of RPG while every time you open a door,the game needs to "load".

Pretty bad feature imo.

I like the heroes saga.I view the news of heroes 6 and the demo.So I donwload the demo,i was sure that the game not work in my system.But try....

Oh! what a surprise!.In the general map 17fps-36fps(Depending on the distance from the camera to the ground).But I really no note the game slow in 17fps(i use fraps).

In game combat 30-36fps.And the ingame cinematics.42-48fps.

So the game is perfectly playable in my system!(after i try the demo probably I buy the game haha).

My system is a pentium 4(northwood 478 lol)3,4ghz.With an his 4670 agp.A 2gb ddr400(2-3-2-5 timmings).And motherboard with a via 880 chipset(not the best chipset for pentium 4 precisely).And a soundblaster 128 pci!.

The game is very optimized.I play at maxium graphical settings(except v-sinc) with 85hz in my old crtc monitor.(I normally use 1024x768,but at maximum resolution,the frames are the same(cpu bootleneg the graphics card)).

So i recommend to the people,not speculate with the minimun system requeriments.The best is try the demo.And see for yourself.

Somewhat like mine. The game runs ok, but a bit glitchy, not fluid. You'd have to upgrade (and then you'd have to have cash! So much standards asked for a poor person to play a game...) it to have it beautiful and smooth as you see on the videos.

But don't fret. If you don't care much about graphics as myself, you won't be bothered by it. Enjoy the good music. Now, if you have bad eyesight...the size of icons and things you have to click might bother you to no end.

A forum member, who experienced crashes trying to run the H6 Beta, recently received this reply from Ubisoft Technical Support :

Subject
[Crash on launch] System requir[e]ments not met [...]

<span class="ev_code_RED">Unfortunately the game is not support[ed] on laptops.</span>

You can try a new save game file but if it keeps crashing there is nothing we can do.

I reproduce this reply the forum member received from Ubisoft Technical Support only for its informational value.

I was surprised, because that was the first info I got on the absence of laptop support for H6.

It does not mean that laptops cannot run H6 : it means that laptops are not officially "supported" -- "there is nothing [UTS] can do".

H6 works fine maxed out on my desktop.
However the game is barely playable on my laptop. I understand that many laptops would struggle to play a game like this and that the corresponding mobile graphics chips are not officially supported... but I still feel somethings wrong as the game mouse cursor and 2D menus seem to be slow and lagging even though when I dont use any in-game menus or scroll the screen the FPS seems relatively high (If you know what I mean) When navigating the in-game menus/issuing orders etc it seems very sluggish, but the battle animations are smooth-ish.

My laptop has the following specs:
Core 2 duo 2.4ghz
4Gb Ram
Geforce 9600GS
500Gb SATA
blah blah etc

Has anyone else reported similar issues? The framerate seems high enough but the game behaves in a choppy manner overall.

@harofire, could it be that H6 doesn't support SLI, or perhaps not with a duo of your graphics card type? Just throwing out a theory here, since I've heard of other applications (games, programs) that got a bit grumpy with SLI. If possible, try disabling the SLI in some settings. To be honest, I've never had an SLI equipped machine myself, but know a few that have and they told me of several games in particular that either performed poorly or not at all with SLI.

10-31-2011, 05:46 AM
Well, I guess my fears were averted. I was a bit worried about my ability to run this game. The demo showed promise as it fully ran on my machine and fairly well. The full game, on the other hand, I was worried it wouldn't run after buying it on Steam last night.

Apparently, I forgot that Apple kind of slipped up and put much more extra graphics capability in their 2010 MBA models than advertised. Needless to say, the game runs beautifully at just under the medium settings on the 320M with the 2.13GHZ Cord 2 Duo. If put on medium, it's perfectly playable, but has a mild choppiness when trying to smoothly move the camera around. In gameplay and combat, it's pretty smooth. Take a few things down a notch from there, and it runs smooth across and even in 3D cutscenes. What they didn't tell me about this card (but what is revealed in the Nvidia hardware settings) is that Windows 7 can address up to a bit over a Gigabyte of graphics memory for the 320M on machines with 4GB or more ram, though 256M is set to dedicated.

Oddly, this game sees all that memory and just runs with it. But I would imagine a number of these other machines also fit into the requirements due to their addressability, but something in the specific hardware combination was having issues with the game. If my machine can run it this well, I would imagine this is more of an issue of hardware combinations the game can't seem to utilize well, yet. Probably could be answered in a patch or so since I'd expect that Radeon HD(alone) should've blown my specs to dust. No way should my machine perform better.

@kmaawad: as soon as it says "Intel" in relation to graphics hardware it means that it is a built-in (into the motherboard) "budget" or laptop solution, minimal dedicated graphics memory etc, not fit for playing gaphically demanding games..

funny though that there seems to be a routine checking graphic card specs which stops people with more than ample graphic power from playing whereas people with not even a dedicated graphics card can try and consequently fail

Dear Sorceress and others who know a lot more than I:
I bought MM6 but can't play on my laptop. No problem, I need to get a desktop for work. Does anyone have any recommendations on what type/brand that will come with the system requirements for MM6?
I can only spend about $800. Was thinking about going to a Staples. Does the brand (HP, Gateway, etc.) matter? How will I know if the video card is compatible? I know very little about PC systems. I just don't want to buy a desktop and take it home to find out that I can't use the game.
For example, the desktops at Staples have "Intel Core i3-2100 Processor" and a "Video Graphics" of "Intel HD Graphics." Is that the graphics card? That doesn't sound compatible to me. Any help is much appreciated. Thank you for your time.

The cause of your crashes might be a compatibility issue between your laptop videocard and the game programme. It is currently a well known situation that Heroes 6 does not run adequately on all laptops. The suspected cause is a compatibility issue between "mobile" videocard architecture (the M in your 330M card) and the Game's graphical code. There is an official thread on this situation, but it does not offer fail-safe fixes :

I do not recommend that you do that : "minimum requirement" is a deceptive expression. It just means that the videocard will let you run the Game, but you will have to run it at low-quality settings. I have read angry posts by people who met the minimum requirements and who experienced problems that made the Game unplayable.

I would say that the "recommended" requirements are the real minimum -- but still a minimum, a better sort of minimum.

Anyway, it is a good investment to purchase the best videocard you can afford, in order to secure yourself good gaming in the 2012-2013 period (at least).

To my knowledge, you will not be able to sell your Intel graphics chipset : it is integrated to the motherboard. You would have to sell the motherboard and then purchase a new one + the new videocard. (3D-gaming quality cards are not integrated to a motherboard : they are separate pieces of hardware.)

MyPol
11-28-2011, 04:01 PM
Quite right. You should start at least with card targeted "For occasional" gaming.

Such is H5750 and above or Nvidia GTS 450 , when we're speaking about newer models.

Less performance is sort of hazard, although it may work there are many reasons why you should not pick these up - one of them is, that this wouldn't be money/performance wise investment to the future.

I'm afraid that you're out of luck in any case.
Notebook graphic cards are not supported (if it's your case) and your processor is below the minimal requirements, although quite a little. Min proc is: 2 Ghz Intel® Pentium® Core 2 Duo E4400 whereas you have 2,1GHz but just Celeron! Even if you would be able to play the game it would be "dangerous" experience. A better graphic card with this processor will not make it much better.

Sorry mate.

From the processor point of view, that is enough.

What about graphic card? Remember notebook cards are not supported, hopefully they will change it later but that's not the case now .

Did the demo have lower system requirements? I tried playing that on the following computer (laptop):

Windows 7 Home Premium
Intel Core 2 Duo SU7300 @ 1,3 GHz 64-bit
4GB RAM SO-DIMM DDR3 1066MHz
GeForce G210M 512MB VRAM
Resolution: 1366x768

This worked pretty well, I had to lower some graphics, but it went pretty lag free.
Now I've bought the full game and I'm playing it on my newer machine (also laptop) with the following system:

Windows 7 Home Premium
AMD E-series E-450 (Dual core) @ 1,65 GHz 64-bit
4GB RAM SO-DIMM DDR3 1333MHz
AMD/ATi Mobility Radeon HD 6470 1024MB VRAM
Resolution: 1366x768

This seems to me to be a better computer, but on this the game just lags all the time! I've lowered all the settings to the lowest but it keeps lagging anyways. Does anyone know what part of my system is at fault here? Is it the processor or graphics card or something else? I really want to be able to play this smoothly. I only play in offline mode. Also, even the intro video is lagging.

Can I tweak anything on my computer in order for it to work more smoothly? I'd appreciate any help!

YES

The minimum requirement and understand that please like an absolute minimum, is 2GHz processor, not a celeron or sempron, in their case freq. must be a bit higher.

It's all written in game requirements shipped with the game and somewhere on the ubi site.

And you're so lucky that you can play it on notebook - as nb vga cards are not supported by game.

Furthermore both, SU7300 or E-450 are low energy and low performance processors not intended for gaming. Also not even for some office work.

Honestly, start from P6200 up for any real work to i3 - i7.. in case that you're so lucky that it does work with your nb vga card against all odds.

i never post something on a forum

but this time i make a very important eception:

why:

i am a big fan of heroes of might and magic, i played heroes III so much that i can play the highest difficulty and set a score of lich king my nefhue ( son of a umcle) has the score of archangel with also the highest grade

i love heroes (III)

why only III because ubisoft why i really dont know makes this game commercial a market game a game that has not improved, doesn have more or advanced or even new imrovements in the game and so do other game producers that copied this game

what you see in heroes III and thats the most importand, this crew/person put love , devotion and time in this game , they where trying too sell a game they where just wanted too create a dreamworld. and they did that its a amazing game

ubisoft u guys destroyed the game , by just want too make money with the game and not too create something special

this post is probally gonna be deleted but i know its true u guys just ruined the game

heroes 6 isnt even better, i have too say after making 3 parts its different but not better maybe even worse

why o why

u guys had 12 years!!!!! when after 12 years the game reached its popularity u guys made 6 and 3 is still better

stop try too sell and make actually something worthy

I´m trying to play H6, but the image is flickering. It's just impossibe to walk throughout the map... Already tried to lower some graphics and change resolution.
(Trying) Playing on:
Windows 7 Home Premium
Intel® Core™ i5 3.20 GHz 64-bit
4GB RAM SO-DIMM DDR3 1333MHz
AMD/ATi Mobility Radeon HD 5570 1024MB VRAM

I've set the configurations to the minimum, but still can't play.. Any suggestions?

P.S.: my laptop (i5, Intel HD Graphics) runs the game pretty well at lower configurations.

Uninstalling and reinstalling the Ubisoft game launcher has fixed flickering issues for other users.

I have exactly the same problem and similar specs, with a bit faster processor and 6 GB of RAM. The game does not display any message, just freezes, with the process talking around 130 mb of RAM and 25% CPU time.

What's really funny is that I have another computer with 1.8GHZ Single Core processor, 2GB RAM and an ATI card and the game does run on that, fine at that. So I guess it's some issue with Intel GPU, probably even the drivers not the hardware itself.

Still the game should be able to warn that it can't run on this hardware and just go into a loop.

when it will be the optimization of the game Might and Magic Heroes 6 ???!!!! or you just your ****ing konflyuks fazhen and the cursor blink? and what the hell are the final version of the game has so much on raw code, the feeling that the beta test from another company, and ended up with is not clear what a terrible balance, optimization, support, regular departures to the desktop. in general I do not know what you're doing, but I can confidently say that with your every patch as it is only worse. do not know how to do, so give "his creation" of another company. I very much hope that the possible continuation of the series Heroes of Might and Magic you do not trust. referring to such a terrible attitude to people who purchase your products.

Hi,
My laptop is ASUS K401J.. It clearly doesnt meet the requirement (mostly for the graphic requirement).
Im planning to buy ASUS A52JC. It has these specification:

Intel Core i3 (370M/350M/330M) and i5 (540M/520M/450M/430M) processor options
15.6"LED-backlit LCD display @ 1366 x 768
Supports up to 8GB of DDR3 RAM
Supports up to 640GB (5400rpm) hard drive space
NVIDIA GeForce 310M graphics processor
4-in-1 card reader
802.11b/g/n WiFi card

What do you think... Does it meet the requirement for this game?!
A better recommendation would be welcome, yet i really appreciated if the price range is below $900 (which is my maximum budget for now).
Plenty of thanks.

Regards,
Lanford

It may work and likely will, search for someone with 310M graphic card for confirmation, who's actively playing the game - best after 1.3 patch will be out, in the second half of the March.

However officially it's not supported as all mobile graphic cards are out. What really does matter is processor horsepower - frequency above 2GHz - note here that i5/i7 have Turbo function which is godlike for games - and graphic card must support Shader Model 3.0

Hello !

I cant play M&MH VI because game said that my videocard is crap.
I have NVidea 6600 GT. I play World of Warcarft and Diablo 3 no problem. After patch 1.2 where Bioware update technical core of the game I can play SWTOR too.
I can play other games that released in 2011-2012.

But I cant play M&MH VI. Why I cant launch the game and set graphical preferences to low ?

Do you plan updating technical core so it support videocards 6 or 7 NVidea series ?

Sorry for mu gramma.
Thx for future reply.

I have an HP laptop with a ATI 5650 graphics card and i7 procesor. When the game first came out I installed it through steam and it played well. Then I stopped playing for about a couple months. Now whenever I try to run the game I keep getting this message. Heroes VI has encountered aproblem and has stopped working. This happens after the Game updates it self and syncs saves. Ive tryed reinstalling the launcher and the game but always with the same result. I reallly like the game but dont know what else to do . Anyone have the same problem?

Support declared that my lockup problems were caused by my computer being below standard requirements. They further stated that the game was not meant to be played on a notebook. I would like to completely uninstall Heroes 6 and Ubisoft. When I point to uninstall on the Ubisoft page it sends me to the Microsoft program uninstall page. I wanted to ask if that procedure will remove everything from my computer and registry.

Thanks for you help.

What version of Windows do you have? What kind of Heroes VI game do you use - DVD box, UBI digital download, Steam?

Is that Intel HD 2000 GPU the only GPU you have? If so, the game may not run well, if at all.
You need either a better discrete GPU (AMD/Nvidia) or a better Intel GPU - for example HD 3000/4000 or better.
I am not saying the game won't work, you have to try and see...

What computer do you have now - what OS, what CPU/GPU/RAM?
It may still run Heroes VI, maybe you just need to tweak it.
Also, not sure what program you used to check that new PC (or laptop?) specs, but it sucks - there are no Intel GPUs with 1 MB of memory, that makes no sense.

Your present PC will run the game fine, if you get a separate/discrete videocard. You just need to buy a Nvidia or AMD videocard with 512 MB or more of videoRAM, and the Heroes VI game will work sufficiently well.

EDIT: Sorry, got confused - is the link you are giving a link to your present PC, or a new system you intended to buy?
EDIT #2: Sorry, I am not sure about your CPU too - it seems it may be too weak for the game.
Maybe someone else here can chime in with a suggestion.

Anyway, this is NOT the proper forum to discuss computer hardware.

Your old computer will not be able to run it. Minimal specs for the game are here (http://ubisoft-en.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/14932/p/88,2333/session/L3RpbWUvMTMyNjU0NjcwMy9zaWQvRFdRNCo2T2s%3D). Your new computer will do but you will need to add a graphic card, probably ATI HD6670. Anyway I hope that it's a deal, cause it's just office PC.

Specifically for Windows 8 I can't say. Probably it will not be complication, haven't chance to try. As for Microsoft Office try to take something from Toshiba or HP, where is included Microsoft Office Start.
