Hi :thumbsup: ,
I downloaded Assasins creed via steam and once downloaded i ran it. It said i met the minimum requirements except for ram (1gig req for xp and 2gb req for vista) the game loaded fine and the cinematics worked fine, but once i had any interaction with the game it would become stupidly slow, i lowered graphics down to minimum and it did help a bit. Now, even though i had 1gig ram initially, a portion was being used up elsewhere ( intergrated graphics card i think) i bought extra ram and now have 1.75 gb of spare ram so shouldnt be a problem now. I ran the game but still have same problem. the mouse is slow and in game its stupidly slow, please some1 help? :flowers:

My spec is Athlon 64 bit dual core 5000+mhz
2 gb ram
intergrated graphics card ( Nvidia Geforce7 series)
160gig hard drive

if anyone can help out with any information in resolving i'd be grateful

Got to remember that with an onboard video card, most of the processing power comes from your system RAM. With you running the minimum amount of RAM for the game, combined with running Windows Vista (which is a memory hog itself), as WELL as an onboard video card, you may not get any better performance.

My recommendations would be to make sure the video card drivers are as up to date as possible, and to disable any non-necessary programs running in the background while you are attempting to play. Assassin's Creed requires a pretty nice rig to run it at high resolutions. I actually built my current rig in anticipation of that game coming out, although I have upgraded it quite a bit since then.

Welcome to bleepingcomputer!

System requirements for a game are pretty useless most of the time. I've tried assassins creed on my computer, and it is more demanding on your computer than it seems it would be. You need a better graphics card. A better processor would help too, but yours isn't that bad.

If you want to start gaming, you can get a very good mid-range card for $100 or less these days.
