Yeah man. You can have up to 16 cities (16 players) in one region, and all these players work together in building their cities and growing their economies...

Yea basically all cities in a region are connected via highway and rail. Each city within the region can share services and resources with each other, and help spur growth.

For instance, if I create an industry-heavy city it would make sense for me to create a big garbage-collection operation and a sewage treatment plant and take all of y'all garbage and sewage. So someone who creates a beautiful tourist city that doesn't want those types of services in their city can just get their coverage from me.

Some of your residents can also come work in my industry if they can't find enough jobs in their own cities, and demand for industry in your city wouldn't be as high because there is more of that in my city. I could buy my water from your city, and you could buy your power from me.

You could provide a big fire department and police department to provide crime and fire protection for me and I wouldn't have to build those things as long as you send enough coverage my way.

Someone else could build a big university and your sims could go to their city to get educated. You could build a bus and train network to make sure those students can get to that dude's cities because the buses will help sims commute between cities.

And all the cities in the region share city hall departments. If I built a department of utilities in my city, you get the benefits of that, and vice versa if you were to build a department of education or department of transportation.

literally everything is intertwined. sh*t will be crazy.

But with the positives are also negatives. For instance, if you have a lot of crime in your cities those criminals might start spreading to other cities. Or if the wind is blowing pollution from my city in your direction your sims will be sicker because of it.

I'm not huge into PC gaming at all, but I'd like to check this out. I'm using a ThinkCentre M Series Intel i3 3.3GHz 4GB Ram with an Intel HD integrated chip. I started to find a decent card for Diablo 3, but it ran the game fine for my taste. Only problem is my case is the slim form factor so I'll have to have one of the smaller cards. I don't need something major, just somebody recommend me some cards that should push this game at a decent clip.
The minimum specs say an integrated Intel HD 4100, GT 7800, and some low-end radeon card or higher so you won't need a crazy expensive graphics card at all to run it. What's your budget?

We have to build our cities close too so they are all attached via rail/highway for trade

I will definitely have a region of my own aside from this one for the same reasons. But I'll be more focused on the Bx Region because this version seems to reward co-op play a lot more. It'll take much much longer to do a region dolo.
