Any help would be appreciated, I dont think I should be scoring a 70 on their benchmark test.. something must be up. I updated the drivers (video ones) wondering what else I can do.

Help!!! =)

Pretty sure it's your graphics card. My wife has an X2 processor with an 8800GTS and she managed a 2400 on low res.

The minimum required to play is a GeForce 9600 or ATI 2900 HD I believe, so even my wife is under the spec, but your card is waaaay under. You might think about upgrading the graphics card (not sure what slots your motherboard has, I can't really look at the moment). If that's not an option, you might not be able to play, sorry.

I guess I dont understand video cards all that well because the minimum reqs on the site say 512, meanwhile this is over a gig video card. I just dont understand.

Ram is only part of it. The processor on the card also determines how fast it can render. The card you have just isn't fast enough.

If your motherboard has a PCI-E slot, it might make sense to upgrade your card. It would be cheaper than building a new computer, but it's also not a guaranteed fix. I haven't tried the game on my wife's computer yet, but she's scored better than some who are playing the game with most settings pretty low just fine.

Unfortunately building/upgrading computers isn't an exact science. If you don't want to take that route but have a PS3, you could always play on that instead.

Sorry, I know it isn't the answer you want, but I'd hate to see you waste your money on the game if your machine can't handle it. If it's any consolation, the gaming rig I built 2 years ago for $2000 barely runs the game at default settings Smiley: banghead

Well the PS3 version will not be released for some time, I believe I heard early next year. But yes, you can be assured that when that version launches, it will run just fine.
