You mean my MX4000 128 ram video card will not be supported. I meet all the other requirements, and I have been highly anticipating SH3, and have played the first two. Any future developments?

What do you expect. Your card is sitting in the dark ages. You can't expect progress if they have to make sure the game runs on a 286sx http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

If you have a spare 150 buy a Geforce 6600 GT. Only 150 and a sweet sweet card.

I'm afraid your only option woud be to replace, i.e. upgrade, your video card. The entire MX range of nVidia cards are designed as budget, general purpose cards, and most definitely were not designed with satisfactory gaming in mind.

Please note the parenthesis; you may well be able to play certain games with an MX, but you won't be seeing all the graphics engine has to offer, and even at that, you won't be getting anything like the performance that really makes gaming enjoyable.

I only have a 4x agp...have a 1.8 p4 with a meg of DDRam..and a geforce 5700le with 256 ram..Icouldn't run a higher gforce card as they are 8x apg...but Im thinking it shoudl run pretty well on my system....I know.its time to ugrade to a more powerful system..but this computer still plays all games very very well...call of duty...Republican commando..Il2 FB at 1024 with everything maxed...so Im hoping SH3 will fallin line..but I did upgrade to this card specifically because I had read SH3 would not run on the Mx series.and here all along I thought the Mx440 was a good card..until I had gone enough forums to read it wasn't

The agp speed doesn't reall effect performance at all, So disregard it. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

MX Cards are bad news. They even lack in doing some of the graphics in FS2004 (Mip-mapping, IIRC).

I would HIGHLY suggest upgrading, if possible.
