Hi guys,

Can someone help me? I've just bought WH40K Dawn of War, have a Dell Inspiron 5160 with an Intel P4@2.80ghz, 512mb RAM and a NVIDIA GeForce FX Go5200 64MB graphics card, but the game plays really slowly and juddery, Almost to the point where the action is in slo mo and almost stops altogether, even on the lowest settings.

Should the game run OK on this spec? Am i doing something wrong?

Any replys welcome,

Thank you.

Yes, you posted this in the wrong section, the DoW problems forum is here: http://forums.filefront.com/dow-problems-errors-help-1015/ ;) Also you have a GeForce FX Go5200 64MB graphics card which won't really stretch to that game. Sorry.

You need at least a 128 mb Graphics card.

Ouch, a 64mb graphics card? That definitely won't cut it. Get a new one, there are quite good ones that are getting a lot cheaper now.
