The Stardock connection brought me to SoASE. GalCiv2 is a great game. And it happens to run on my AMD64 single-core laptop quite well. Homeworld 2 and the SW:EAW also run passably well, despite the Radeon X200 video (never go there! geforce2go all the way!). Is there any hope that this game will run on my notebook? I'm sure it's too early to peg down a *real* minimum requirements, but what sort of platform are you targeting; and how much effort are you preparing to devote to testing and tuning on lower-end platforms?
