@marca4500 Core i5 is faster than a Core 2 Duo, so your statement 'Slow loading can be the couse of the CPU' sort of cancels its self out. I run the game on a Core i7, and it IS a hell of a lot faster than my Core 2 Duo laptop

To everyone: Disable on-demand patching, it does speed up loading, since no files need to be downloaded. If you use Xfire, make sure its fully closed, it runs havoc with STO, including loading and graphical problems.
also turning off shadows, for some reason or another they do seem to cause issues with speeds.
