Ew, you need to tell us what you are trying to run it at. Don't expect high on all settings or high resolutions to ever be stable, mhm.No 1GB will not suffice, RAM is only part of your problem, doesn't mean it won't help. All are on the right track with CPU.TheKiwi said:It's that CPU. You need more guts from a processor than it's got in it.
It's not his card. It would eat your's for breakfast and still be hungry.wp34gsh said:I have a pentium 4 3.06ghz, 2gb ddr ram, ati hd 2400 256md video card, windows xp mce, and i run the game on medium details and works great. iim not sure its soley the cpu being the issue,
Just sayin' this runs fine with my 6800 GT OC'd, not problems near this OP. It just overheats because a fan on it is dead.PSU I completely agree with though, I had more crash issues and problems until I got that 600W OCZ Gamer Xtreme.TheKiwi said:As is always the case, the video card contributes the largest part toward overall performance.
Regarding the ram, I was inserting Hellgate: London earlier today to play and in that time I took a gander at the recommended system requirements for that game. For Vista, Hellgate requires 2 GB of ram and really Hellgate's requirements are eqivalent to The Witcher's requirements and Hellgate runs fine, save for the occasional lag spike when all hell is breaking loose on screen. Just thought I'd mention that.The speed is 1024 MB DDR2. I hope that helps a bit.bklipple said:With Vista, it's highly recommended that you have at least 2 GB (2048 MB) of RAM. In the chance that you can get yourself upgraded to 64-bit Vista, go with at least 4 GB.I have had no issues, compatibility, performance, or otherwise with Vista. I might get a rare crash, but it's no different than what I experienced with XP; XP was no more stable than Vista has been, though this will most definitely vary from machine to machine.Not too sure of your video card, I stopped using ATI cards after the Radeon 9000 AGP. However, after doing some brief research, it looks as though that card should work, though you may have to cut the graphics/effects settings back for tolerable frame rate performance.Your CPU shouldn't be an issue.The only other thing I can think that can tend to make a bit of a performance difference is your RAM. You say you have 1 GB, but what speed is it? Is it DDR or DDR2? PC3200, PC5400, PC6400, etc?Also, I'm pretty sure there is a thread dedicated to system requirements around here somewhere; you might be able to find more thorough answers to your questions/concerns.
