NVIDIA GeForce 7300 GS
 
So im getting some weird crash errors. Im assuming my card isnt powerful enough?

Is there a way to turn the game settings to the lowest before you start it. It crashes as soon as I press launch. Only get to the cryptic splash screen.

Your card is not designed for gaming. Go for a *500 or above series for gaming. (make sure those last 3 numbers are 500 or higher. thats important.

Your card is designed for watching video, not gaming.

8800 GT with DDR3 ram is very cheap atm, if you are in the US, check out newegg. Europe, Dabs.co.uk.

If you want to tweak it, go into your program folder and run the gameclient.exe directly. This will take you to the game login page, where you can click options and tweak your settings.

little bit of price different but both are more than enough to run this game very well.

Personally i'd go with the 9800 as its a very solid card. The ATI is a budget card, and will probably just underperform the 9800

Thanks man. I just wish someone could tell me for def that it is the card that is causing my crashes. Reluctant to go spend money and find the game still doesnt work.

:(
