    i had the same thing happen to me, however i am getting a new pc, just awaiting arrival. is there any patch that can be applied in the mean time to change/add another, older graphics to the supported list. all my other specs are acceptable.

    i would rather start playing now that wait about 3 weeks for my pc.
