unfortanley that is not the answer i was looking for....you see some people do not have a lot of cash just to drop down on building the perfect pc...some have to make do with what they have...so in the future keep you biased opinions to yourself

agreed, I only have a 1.6 with a 5200, however it runs games VERY well. Must upgrade the vidcard when I can. Anyhow, to the problem. I assume you are getting a VM low error? Please be more specific on that. If so, check the VM settings and I would suggest setting the min and max to the SAME amount, that way there is no dynamic VM sizing going on. Not alot of speed diff, but a little (maynot even be noticible). If its a different error, please post the details of it. At work, so maybe a bit before I reply.

check DM in safe mode and look at the vid see if there are multiple cards listed. uninstall and reinstall the drivers.

If you're getting a low virtual memory message, then you need to increase your page file size or eliminate some other programs you may have running and eating up memory
