Minimum demands on videocard to play RACE?

Hi all,

I try to find out whats the best minimum graphic card to play Race wtcc. I'm not looking for the most expensive of course but a card to run the game smoothly.
Please guys tell me what (AGP) card you have.

I know, the Simbin site recommends a 256mb 3d card, but my granny Ti 4800 256mb doesn't understands the game (a directX problem).

My system is ,as you can see ,not up-to-date.
asus a7n8x amd 2200+ 1024mb nVidea 4800 :oops:

Thanks in advance.

dont buy the minimum, cards are not that expensive! nvidia 7000s should be good i think for this game. I myself use 7600GT twice in SLI

Hi all,

As said above, you should be able to get a good 7 series agp card for your system,especially now the geforce 8800 are out. This game is a bit hard on the graphics, i can play gtr2 maxed out but have to lower the graphics down a bit on this game. Still looks unreal tho...... :shock:

On what quality can you play RACE with the Nvidia GeForce 7600Gt??
Because i have the Ati Radeon X800GT (still +-200 euro) and i have to play RACE on Medium quality otherwise i get lags on my screen when i'm driving online... :?

I've got a ATI radion 9800Pro and running on MAX.. without FPS-lagg.
Maybe its the computer/system setup?

i play all games at maximum graphic details (if possible i put it even higher, but for now thats not possible) but please note that i dont use one videocard but TWO! I use two 7600GT's in SLI modus. So its not 256MB but 2x256=512MB!

Let's buy for Nvidia but PureOwnange the graphic quality also depends of the rest of your pc! :wink:
At the worst, let's chose the 8800GT :p (for only 630euros)

I use a geforce 7950gx2, and if i play with max settings at 1680x1050 the fps is about 40-70 but can drop down to about 15 especially at somewhere like macau. But drop some settings down to medium, but still at 1680x1050 i get over 100-150, which is what i want playing driving games.. :D . Yet playing GTR2 i can max that game out at 1680x1050 with 35 cars and still get 100 fps which looks amazing.. :shock: . I don't know why RACE is so hard on the graphics when it looks just as good as GTR2... :roll:
