    I have a dual core 2.8Ghz processor and 4GB of RAM and the game runs fairly well most of the time on very high settings. You may have a little more trouble as you're lacking RAM.

    I'd recommend adding at least a 2GB of RAM. If you're running Windows 7 you'll likely get a big performance increase all round, but games especially will struggle with only 1.5GB.

    The game will likely run on the specs you have though, but just don't expect it to run brilliantly on high settings.

    EDIT: Sorry, didn't notice you're running XP. I'd still recommend more RAM and also upgrading your OS!

    Don't rush i would say.Much better is as the buddy says above is wait a bit for 2011 v.There's more improvements and new stuffs around like :safety car, new AI , new tracks layout, new movements of the drivers out of the cars cockpit etc.Get v.2011

    My advice is to go with new video card. 8600 GT is fast but is losing ground with newer games. Also put 2 GB 2x1 gb ram. If you can buy 4 gb of ram will be great. After all i agree with others.. Codies said that they've polished the graphics bug in the new game. So wait and test your pc before you take a step.
