Phenom I X4 @ 2.6 GHz - ATI Radeon X4870 1GB @ 800/1000 MHz - 4GB OCZ @ 667 MHz - Vista Home 64
Would I be able to run E:TW with a ATI X300/X550/X1050?
k thanks, recommended settings for that card?
ive had a display issue with ATI.. where random colored shapes are everywhere on the screen except the HUD during the campaign map and battles. ive read stuff about some older drivers working, but i have not gotten any of them to work
Video Card: ATI Radeon HD 3200 integrated graphics card
i have tried 6 drivers, including 8.11, 8.12, 9.1, 9.2, 9.3, and 9.4, all of them have same problem
heres a picture of the problem
EDIT: oh, and the demo worked perfectly fine for me.. im not sure what messed it up
EDIT 2: fixed it by uninstalling drivers and reinstalling the display and audio drivers and not Catalyst Control center, then i went to options ingame and put it on pixel shader 2, and it worked.

Just a note, for anyone with higher end systems but still a little confused as to not so smooth gameplay, go into CCC and set your AA and AS to 'use same settings as application' this really helped things for me
I'm having trouble with buildings on the battle map. They have a lot of black dots on them that move whenever I roll the camera, and they're confined to the buildings. I'm on an ATI Radeon 4870HD 1GB and these are my driver settings:
Driver Packaging Version 8.612-090428a-080268C-ATI
Catalyst™ Version 09.5
Anyone else having such issues?
I have a 4850 512mb, 3gb ram, and I cant hardly run the game, I'm getting 1-5 fps in 1440x900 19 in monitor.
Window 7 is the answer

when i try to update the drivers for my dual 4800's, it just updates the drivers from 8.5 to 8.6, regardless of which driver i've downloaded.... a few days later it begins to restart randomly. any solution to that?
Follow this link and read the instructions:
Damn, CA should really know about this by now.
Whats the cheapest ATI card that can run this game on ultra? If anyone knows it would be much appreciated.
