PC System Analysis For Total War: Warhammer Fantasy Requirements
Total Warhammer will require an integrated HD 4000 GPU or GTS 450 or HD 5770, which can play Total War Warhammer with low graphics settings, while achieving 15-25 frames per second at 720p resolution. You will also need 3 or 4GB RAM and dual core CPU. But for Warhammers recommended requirements at 1080p res, with 45-55 Frame rate across the campaign map, while fighting with 20v20 unit in battle mode, then you will need 2GB VRAM and an AMD R9 270X or an Nvidia GTX760. The processor needed for TW:Warhammer recommended specs is an i5-4570 coupled with 8GB system memory. For those wanting to run at Ultra graphics setting and 60+ FPS you will need an i7-4790K CPU and AMD FURY X GPU or a GTX 980. Total War Warhammer needs 35GB hard drive storage space to install. This means Total Warhammer can run on a wide range of computer hardware.

You can run at high if you reduce the unit size to medium. Just don't go ultra on the unit size but hey, it is worth playing 25-ish fps when you fight 5 full army stacks. It is a beautiful scene :'D
