I just bought Grid for Pc and I have to run it on medium quality.
I just bought a $1000 computer a month ago and I feel that it is not acceptable to have to run it on medium. I put it on highest quality and the menu's took 30 seconds to respond after I would press enter to get through them. My system has a:
Processor: intel® Core2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.40GHz
RAM: 4. GB
system: 64 bit operating system
Windows Vista Home Premium Service Pack 1
GeForce 8500 GT
ForceWare Version: 169.60
Total availabel graphics: 2303 MB
Dedicated video memory: 512 MB
System video memory: 0 MB
Shared system memory: 1791 MB
Video Bios Version: 60.86.48.00.16
Bus: PCI Express x 6
direct x version 10
Is there anything I can do to improve it or is there any thing I can buy that would improve it.
I just want to be able to run it on high quality without having to wait 30 seconds for menu's to respond and have acceptable performance using high quality graphics mode.
Also the game was not meant to work with my graphics card which is Nvidia gt 8500.
