    HELP! Thief2- noob at large, opinions wanted.


    i was wonderin if any one could give some advice. i have just bought a new comp,

    Dell inspiron 531
    AMD® Live Technology - Athlon™ 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 5600+
    Genuine Windows Vista® Home Premium
    Dell™ 19" Silver Wide Flat Panel
    2048MB 667MHz Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM [2x1024]
    320GB (7200rpm) Serial ATA Hard Drive with 16MB DataBurst™ cache
    256MB NVIIDA® GeForce® 8300GS Turbocache graphics card
    16x DVD +/- RW Drive
    Integrated 7.1 Channel High Definition Audio

    And wanted to know CAN i run Thief 2 with out any major problems? As i am of a poor student sort i cant really afford to tinker with hardware at this stage. i assume from my general reading that i may have some probs with Vista and/or the dual core processor. And yes the 8300GS is poor buts its a case of 'make do' for now. i am waiting for the comp and game (of which i have previous demo knowledge of)to arrive so any advice would be much appreciated. thanks.

    It's unique for every person. You may have no problems at all, or you may have to go through seven different steps (like I did). But now I have no problems.

    Just ask for help AFTER you've gone through the FAQ if you have any problems.

    kool, well i did have a lookette at those before i posted, i was rather more concerned with the general requirements than specific problems at this stage. but i catch your drift, i will load and see when it has arrived. i must admit i did get rather confused by the geforce dithering/colour problem and such wondered if it would extend down to the 8300GS? But i shall know soon enough what probs await lol.

    I would recommend that you change that video card, its very bottom end. Either get something like a 7600GT or if you want a bleeding edge card a 8600GT

    But bear in mind that an 8xxx series Nvidia card will render Thief 2 very poorly.. See Biker's thread about "crappy colours". See my thread about the "last reliable Nvidia card". I have a 7950 GT, but it requires non-standard drivers to play T1, as explained in my thread.
