    i pop the cd in, it does nothing, there is a loading thing on my mouse

    It sounds like you covered all the bases except for updating the OS,
    drivers, and BIOS. Also run the Check Disk utility. A very remote
    possibility is that your disk is too badly fragmented to run. The early
    nVidia drivers didn't perform the way the updated drivers do, though I never
    remember it not running at all. Your specs look real good.

    yea man thanks, bios shouldn't be an issue since its a new intel
    motherboard and all drivers are up to date, im gunna try to do the disk
    utility thing ,but I don't think it should be an issue since the game
    installed perfectly off the cd

    Have you tried running it as Administrator to see if that works?
