Been hearing a lot about this game having performace issuses on decent machines and I was wondering if my aging machine will even have a fighting chance at playing this game. I plan on upgrading very soon this christmas, but here are my specs anyways.

CPU: P4 @ 3.06GHz, 800Mhz FSB

Memory: 1GB DDR 400

GPU: Geforce 8400 GS 512MB (replacement card after 7900 fried, didn't pay a dime for it :)

HDD: SATA 160GB 7200RPM (nearly full), SATA 80GB 10,000RPM (60 free)

OS: XP MEdia center and XP professional

You know I thought the 8400 was crap and it really is, untill you put a big ass fan on it and overclock the hell out of it which makes it a cheap OK card. I was able to run Need for Speed Pro Street at an average of 45fps with high settings, smoke off and 1024x768 using a 50% overclock on the gpu. Stock it was 20fps average with same settings. Of course I will be using the 10,000rpm drive and I use professional to play games on since its highy tuned and uses very little memory. I don't really care if everything is on low or I don't hit the magic 60 and above fps. 30fps is fine with me, is this game really a graphic upgrade from prostreet?

You dont have enough RAM or a good enough GPU.

TheRazor375, my guess is No. But you can upgrade like this. My machine runs it just fine, and I didn't spend all that much money. Here's what I got:

PentiumD 925 3.0Ghz (Dual Core) 800Mhz FSB
2GB Ram 667Mhz FSB
GeForce 8500GT 1GB Graphics Card 667Mhz FSB
SATA 300GB 7200RPM HDD
DVD+R/DL 16X
VISTA Ultimate
