Thanks for quick replies!

JJCarter - As stated above I'm not into computers at all... So the statment "NVIDIAâ® GeForceâ"ž˘ 3/4/FX series with the exception of MX series cards ATIâ® Radeonâ"ž˘ 8500/9000 family cards or newer" doesn't say very much to me... Only that I cant find the exact line "NVIDIA GeForce FX Go5200"

I have (according to the Properties of My Computer) the following:

Microsoft Windows XP
Pentium (R) 4 CPU 2.80 GHz 1.84 GHz
512 MB RAM
NVIDIA GeForce FX Go5200

Sound card and hard disk space is no problem.

Hope it will work..?

Regards again,

Fair enough....wasn't cappin on ya guy...just though you didn't see it. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif Note the smiley face in my first post? I thought it was kinda clear in the spec listings. My apologies if you thought I was trying to offend. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif

It should work...but a better video card would be nice because 5200 is a kind of old...

Don't feel offended at all! It's just me that can't read those specs... Thank you very much for quick replies!
