ok so i got the game yesterday and when i started the game it said "update your driver" i thought nothing of it and continued playing and I got the blue screen of death while i was in the "taxi jeep" so i updated the driver and it worked fine. this morning i was playing and it froze on me again only i didnt get the blue screen. everything just froze with the music playing in the background. so i restarted. now im playing again and it does the same thing "i found like 4 diamonds and i couldnt find any place to save :(" yeah so how do i fix this? specs: 7600 gtx 1 gig of ram 2.11 GHz

Well, I'd assume it was driver issues, but it seems you've sorted them. Could you post your DXDIAG and maybe some more detail on the problem. I'm not very good solving problems which are vague to me.
hold on. uhm let me see *i think 1 hour later i dont know i wasnt looking at the clock* ok apperntly i didnt properly install the new driver. but luckily a tutorial helped me out. now it plays better and no crashes.

Besides the driver, you don't even meet mimimum requirements. Even if your CPU is a Pentium D it wouldn't with that low of a speed. From the game's readme:
"Minimum Configuration: Operating System: Windows® XP (with SP2) or Windows Vista® (with SP1) Processor: Intel® Pentium® 4 3.2 Ghz, Intel® Pentium® D 2.66 Ghz, AMD Athlon™ 64 3500+ or better RAM: 1 GB Windows XP / 2 GB Windows Vista Video card: NVidia™ 6800 or ATI™ X1650 or better 256 MB DirectX® 10.0–compliant video card or DirectX® 9.0c–compliant card with Shader Model 3.0 or higher"
I don't quite meet minimum either on the CPU. You can't really go by what System Requirements Lab says because they really stretch the Hyper Threading as being an actual vs virtual dual core and the performance rating of Intel CPUs (P rating) as being the actual speed.
I have P4 3Ghz, X1950Pro 512MB 2 GB RAM spec on AGP platform. I can run the game but when 2 or more guys comes gunning at me up close with assault rifles at the same time the frame rates drop quite a bit.
heh, if i dont meet minimum requirements. then far cry 2 must have some wierd system because i play the thing on high and it runs really smoothly.
I don't spend enough time here

I've got a 2.8 ghz dual core, 2 gigs RAM and a 1gig 8500GT, and I can barely play it on High with a solid frame rate. True, the 8500GT is pretty much horrible in terms of gaming, but the gig of RAM and extra processing power should make up for that, no? I think you got lucky. :p
ok i had to restart with a new character do to some stupid door glitch. and again it freezes on the exact same spot as it did last time. so im wondering if my driver actually updated. i even looked on youtube to find out how to update correctly so i ask. is my driver suppose to show my old version? or did it not update that it just re-installed the old version?
