I note from the recommended specs that 512K of RAM is OK but 1G is recommended.

I am interested to know if people are upgrading before receiving the game to 1G or those with 512K like myself will wait to see how the game runs first and then decide.

I think you mean 512Mb http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Ram is generally dirt cheap these days and you can get another 512Mb RAM for about fifty quid - http://www.crucial.com/uk/index.asp (I always use Crucial memory in my computers, strongly recommended).

Of course you will be able to play the game with 512MB RAM just fine.

1gb RAM will run much faster and smoother than 512. You may come across some laggy bits with the minimum, and it can be annoying at times. You will be able to run the game, just slower.

Ummm... smoother? Undoubtedly, but much faster? Nah.

There may be a hint of speed increase due to data being RAM resident rather than being dragged off the comparatively slow HD, but hardly noticeable, unless your HD was extremely slow and/or fragmented.

To gamers, the main benefits of 1GB instead of 512MB, is shorter game reload times, quicker game exit, and lack of stutters. Stutters & pauses are without doubt the most numerous complaints in 3D gaming forums.

Yep, I'd recommend 1GB+ RAM to anyone who plays 3D games in XP. It's just so much smoother, consistent and stable. Lengthens or preserves the lifespan of your HD too... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
