    Unless you actually post them at each interval of "posting a question" no
    one here can actually see them. during a reply to a post then no as it would
    be there from the original

    I personally have that game and had somewhat similar horsepower under the
    hood.. Running Vista business and my video card is a little stronger being a
    ATI toxic 4850 but the game runs fast and smooth for me. but then again back
    when I first ran that game I had a pny 7900gs nvidia graphics card(and all
    was well) I was running a Intel core2 duo 1.86 with 4gigs of ddr2 667. Now I
    have a core2 quad 6600 and 4gigs ddr800. If there is a any weakness in your
    system I would have to say video card but doubt it.. Not much help I know
    but just throwing it out there

  10. I know there are faster cards out there but it seems to me like a
    HD3870 would have no problem running a game like Need for Speed Carbon
    I just bought the card and PSU today so I am going to try Grid and se
    what happens. That game is much more power hungry than NFS Carbon

    I also run Grid and several other race sims. Toca2 Toca3 GTR GTR2 and
    Rfactor. all these games run fast and smooth on my system. I do run flight
    sims such as flight simX and CFS3 and once again they are very smooth. Where
    exactly are you having the problem? screen tear? stutter? also when running
    these games what do you have running in the backround?

  12. So I tried Grid out and the first race was a bit skitchy then the secon
    race ran smooth as silk. I figured I would turn the resolution from 168
    X 1050 to 1280 X 960 and the graphics and the pausing in the game becam
    almost unbearable. So I turn the graphics down and the game runs worse?

    That does not make much sense as I run both carbon and grid at 1920X1200 full
    antialias and all yet the games run smooth and fast.. I wish I could help more

    That is some help. I have a Vista based computer and works great but some
    games particularly Delta Force Black Hawk Down and Delta Force Extreme all
    freeze up for a second or two and then works great. I put five video cards
    in this computer and all the same problem and the final one BFG 9800 GT
    works great no problems but those games. So might be maybe some games might
    not be compatible with DirectX10 not sure but my guess as that was what Nova
    Logic told me about some of their games.

  16. It doesn't seem like anyone cares but here is what I did to fix this.
    went into CCC (Catalyst Control Center) and turned everything in ther
    down to the performance setting and I ran autotune in CCC. So I gues
    the people that run this site don't care to help but if any other perso
    running an ATI card has this problem then try what I did. It works!
    went from almost unplayable gameplay to high fps at max settings. Thank
    for helping me out Vista Forums (actually I guess I should than
    myself):mad

    I am sorry that I was not much help. I also run a ati card but my machine
    runs these games on high quality and 1920x1200. Very fast and very smooth
    therefore doing what you did and seeing your specs did not add up.. I take it
    you have all the dx9 and dx10 and your video card drivers updated as well.
    Also I must say if no one cared then no one would have responded.

    I never get it , when some people think everyone can view the 100
    settings on their computor and hardware combo and not come up with th
    correct answer. and get pissed of about it.

  19. Ok first off, off is spelled with 2 f's. Secondly this is how you spel
    "computer." Thirdly I am not pissed off. Further, I was not commentin
    about the lack of knowledge it was the lack of anyone even responding.
    got a few joke responses but that is it. That is fine. Now I know wher
    not to go for knowledge as there is none here.
    Conclusion
    Grow a brain, learn how to spell, and get a life

    Perhaps you should learn to post in the right section, instead of th
    newsgroups section where they can't necessarily see your system spec
    that you put into the user control panel
