Same. what I found out is this game is really CPU intensive. So if you wanna run this game at 60+ fps 5 times speed. You'll have to get a beast processor.

it is nothing like age of empire three sorry. This is a grand strategy game meaning that there is a lot of micromanaging, while age of Empires III is an rts. Europa Universalis does have rts elements in it, but there is no real comparison.

MAX EVERYTHING and you'll get 40+FPS at your resolution.
FPS might drop a bit if you use faster game speed(time)

I believe low, maybe even medium. I ran this on an Athlon II X2 3.5 GHZ and an HD 5450 so yeah, I think it should work.
