    Neverwinter Nights 1?

    Ya that card shouldnt have any probs i'm aware of.

    NN runs even with an onboard Intel 848 gfx chipset, not well, but its playable. So you shouldnt have any probs.

    512 is minimum and 1 Gig is recommended. After reading many forums I wouldn't go anything less than a Gig of RAM. It is also recommended to have a good CPU. Your video card should do fine.

    This game sure does make its demands on hardware.

    sure does demand a hell of a requirement..

    btw i have a 3.0 p4 processor...

    if i have a gig of memory i should play just fine? possibly with no lags at all??

    hope it can..

    Probably won't run very smoothly unless you set graphics settings to low. The game is graphically very demanding.

    I have GeForce 7600GS too (for now) and the 1.0 version of the game was almost unplayable at 1280x720, quite low settings. The latest patches have made improvements in rendering speed, but it's still quite slow.

    waaaahh!!

    thats too much!

    i only have a budget for 7600GS...does radeon has a counterpart for 7600GS? if so, is it better than 7600GS? i hope they have the same price range :(

    I personally would spend the money and get another stick of 512 RAM to upgrade to 1 Gig. Try it with your current video card. The thing I have been reading time and again on the net is that people with varying hardware configurations are getting varying results and some of the lower end recommended systems are doing better (!) than some of the the high end rigs.

    Just turn off the "Shiny Water" (I'm serious) option and lower some of the resolutions and I think you should be fine.

    yep im planning to add another 512 memory on my cpu..

    what im concerned is with maybe after i bought the video card, i will find out it wont run on NWN2...

    do any of you guys have any idea on RADEON's answer to 7600GS? one that can outmatch the latter with the same price of corz

    :)

    thanks!
