I have a Radeon 9200 SE card, 512 DDR RAM, and 1.8 Ghz Pentium 4. When I play online, i have to crank the resolution down to 640 x 480 so that i can work my way through levels smoothly which makes me cringe when i see my shadow and whatnot. I believe i have the recomended requirements for this game, so can anyone offer any solution or idea as to why this i have to do this?

p.s. my cpu is very stable, no spyware or fragmented C drive

thnx

That's about normal for that card. You need a gaming card to play this game at decent speeds. The best bang for your buck right now is the Radeon 9800 Pro which is about $200.

The 9800 pro is a good choice but I would get an Nvidia 6600GT. It is faster than an ATI 9800XT and way cheaper. The 6600GT is faster than anything at it's price point. I would consider it the champ of the midrange market at this point. Though I hear ATI is replacing the X700 with a new card from th X800 product line so you may want to wait and see.

Hey Chacha i have the same setup as you,I nearly finished Pandora tomorrow,but now i get that History thing or i get to my saved games and they wont load(goes back to home page)with an error message..I have come up with a realy GOOD salution:- This is what i did I took two pieces of wood about 12" long 1 cm square,I made a cross out of them(stay with me).I then nailed all four CDs to each end of the cross.Now take it to the local park and you throw it at all the dogs ****ting on the grass,you have to use stealth or you will be seen and thats game over.My personal best was 2 collies 1 poodle and a very angry rotwieller.I did get value for money and it never crashed and my PC loved it.Watch this space for updates.Cheers from Sam age 5 and Dave quite alot older and should know better lol........
Let me know how you get on.(Next im going to play HALO using a toaster a cricket bat and a very long piece of string cant wait)see ya!
