I understand technology improves, and so do game graphics.

If they do an upgrade that raises the polycount, I expect a need to increase my hardware.

If they do an upgrade in texture quality (IE, fianlly make velius textures work on luclin models), I know I will need more video RAM.

If they change the font or put the text over a transparency...I know Windows should be able to damn well handle it.

With that said, I'm not whining about any upgrades to the graphics engine. I'm ticked that when I hit F10 in the old UI, I could read my text over a transparent black box, but cannot do hte same in the new UI because VI/Sony has incompentent programmers.

But, how can you really bitch when your video card is way below their minimum requirements?

I'd be thankful you got to play with that card as long as you did.

I gave up on offering suggestions about the problem once you stated your hardware and then were pretty much adamant against changing it because "it happens on other video cards too". At least try to borrow another card to try out and see if it helps.

I see in the other message that you're getting a whole new system. Please disregard the above (not editing it out since it does serve a point) and let us know how the new system works out for you!

Ouch..$1400 for a new system?? Stop now! Go to www.pricewatch.com and check out stuff there...you can build a REALLY nice computer for about $700...HALF of what you are paying. And I'm sure that someone here can help you out, or maybe someone you know in RL with the actual building.
