  1. I just bought it and it runs like 1 frame per 30 seconds or so. I have the latest drivers installed. Anyone else has this problem?

    GF9500GT 512MB, 2GB RAM, Athlon64 3000+, XP SP3 dual boot with W7
    I think I can play this game on lower details since it's not very demanding.

    hi g4mer ;
    your graphics card and ram is very good to play this game but your cpu is a single core processor and this game need at least dual core cpu like amd athlon ii x2 or amd phenom ii x2 , so to play it you need to upgrade your cpu

    Just because the game says minimum requirements dosn't mean it will work good with them it only means it won't completely destroy your parts

    That doesn't explain such low fps. It's low even on the intro video. I played far more demanding games than this, so I think I can play this one too.

    listen to me i had the same problem with my old system :
    cpu : intel pentim 4 HT @ 3.20 GHZ
    gpu : nvidia 8600 GT 512
    ram : 2 GB
    i get the ati 5770 from my friend to test the game but no hope ,then i changed my cpu to intel core 2 duo and the game is running now like a champ .
    so the main problem is in you CPU .

    Do you have nvidia graphics drivers installed?

    Yup. The newset ones. I guess that SKYSTAR was right, my CPU isn't compatible.
