What version of vid drivers are you using? Is your directX 9.0C? Also, are you aware that the system requirements call for at least 512megs of ram, 1 gig being recommended?

Yes, ur rigt. Atleast 1 gb of RAM would be prefect. Plus do u have a Video Card that BiA souports?
ur pc sounds like its high tech, mines 5 years old lol
but the ram wouldnt matter....if the game is starting to play even if the ram was ALITTLE below 512 ( its 480 ) the game would just play slow...for the amount of time i played the game which was very short it was not laggin or anything.... the gameplay was fine.....other then that i have no clue.... im not a really up to date of the internal facts on my pc( ima noob ) how would i tell which drivers i have....that might also b a solution and yes my video card should definitely be supported by BIA i had a ATI 7500 in here but yesterday i got a new 9250......bia minimum supports 8500 doesnt it???
The most uptodate ATi driver can be found here, this is for winXP...the best way to see what version you currently have is: right click on desktop->choose properties->choose settings->choose advance->choose options And yes, the ram does matter, (most games now are ram hoggs, the more you have, the better it runs...this also works in reverse; (You should also remember that some parts of the game are not as ram-intensive as others) But you can work around it by lowering the settings and shutting down progs that may be running in the background.
its working now...i have to reformatt then reinstall the ATI 9250
