i said in the spec, nvidea 8800gts 320mb by BFG. (granted i forgot to say it was by BFG). anyway no matter now, i got rome total war working, after i got the latest driver installed. bet you guys get this all the time. im installing simcity 4 again now to see if that works. thanks for the link woodchip.
just a quickie here: will installing the latest drivers make games run any faster? just wondering thats all. i have only been using the driver which came with the gfx card, which is probably months out of date. cheers again.
