I am a complete newbie to pc gaming, I tried civ rev for ps3 and loved it, so was thinking i would jump into a pc game version but wasn't sure being so new to all of this should I go right into Civ V or should I just try to find an older version III or IV for sale on craigslist or something...
I noticed there are SO many different options and types of Civ, are there any that are a particularly good value I should look for a deal on?
Do they have any trials of any of the versions where i can download and try it a bit to see if it's what I want to do (pc is probably different than ps3).
Is there a learning curve to this that playing earlier versions would be helpful or a version that is easier or harder overall to get the concepts and basics down?
My computer is a quad core 1.6 intel chip with 4 gig ram and dual geforce 8600 graphics cards (i have 4 monitors and do video and photo editing), dunno if those specs help or not in determining which would be best but hopefully I would be ok on even Civ V in terms of playing on the pc due to requirements.
