Right now I am trying to fight the Brumak (or whatever it's called) for a second time. The part where you need to shoot the guns on it's arms. My computer just locks up and the only way out is for me to ctrl+alt+del to shut the game down. When I go into task manager I notice it's using almost 800MB of memory but that should not be an issue. I have 2 gig of DDR2 and a big swap file. This is the second time this has happened. I cannot remember the exact location the first time but it wasn't much before this part of the game. I tweaked the resolution down from 1280x1024 to 1024x768 and that seemed to allieviate the problem the first time around but now it's freezing up on me again. I have also updated to the newest Radeon drivers from ATI. I'm running WinXp Pro SP2 with an Intel P4 D 3.4 gig processor. 2 gig of DDR2 RAM. Sapphire Radeon x1650512MB video card with a Sound Blaster Audigy sound card.
Anybody got any ideas? This really stinks!! I just "upgraded" to this video card from a Geforce 7600 256MB card hoping it would make some of these games play better. Crysis seems OK so far but it's on low settings. Thanks for any advice!
