    Hi Everyone,

    I have a brand new HP Pavillion, it has 4MB of RAM, 500GB HD, 2.6GHz speed, and it still blinks a lot when i run the game.

    I have even lowered the detail and resolution as low as possible and it still slow.

    Anyone know of any configuration I may use to run the program?

    I am an avid racing game player, I am looking forward to racing you all at Nordschleife (and beating you too!!)

    Thanks for any help you could share!

    Indeed, if its onboard graphics I'm afraid its a case of you need a new graphics card.

    Do you mean 4GB of RAM?!?!?

    If you have an AMD Dual core processor you need to either run the game on single core or download hte AMD dual core optimizer, I had similar problem and this driver fixed it for me....

    Hi, the problem must be the graphic card, if you want to buy a new one, i think a Nvidia 8600GT is also ok, i have this and GTR Evo works pretty well.

    Then go for the 8800GT, loads more power for maybe a few bucks more. But with these specs why not a newer series of cards? You got loads off choice and we can't see how much u can spend on it.

    Het Matthew,

    I got it at compusa in Fort Lauderdale fl, it is running quite well in every other way, I think it may be loading way too many programs at the start, i am working on trimming some of the fat from the very start,

    Thanks for the feedback mate!

    It's the gaphics card. It's not really designed for gaming at mind. The rest of the system is strong but the graphics card is frankly rubbish.

    You would need to get a new one to enjoy gtr evo.
