I have a Dell GX260 with 1.5 GB of ram and a EVGA FX5500 256mb AGP card. It has a
2Ghz P4. Other than firefox and Neverwinter Nights it is a clean installation of
Windows XP Pro. The system meets or exceeds the recommended system requirements but
the game is still very slow. I have installed all updates to the game. It seems
like some textures are missing because some of the creatures are white and other places in the game
have white patches. The game runs fine on another system with less system resources.
Any suggestions??

Thank you

Just because the computer supports the minimum recomendations for the game does not mean it will run it at full graphics at a high resolution. You may have to Adjust the graphics/resolution down to get it to play good. You could also try uninstalling and reinstalling drivers, and making sure your directX is up to date.
