I just installed Need For Speed Most Wanted on my PC, but it doesn't start properly. When I asked for technical help, it said my display memory was too low (it said mine was 16, and it required 32). I don't know if this is MB or what, but can I increase the display memory in any way? Is this possible without buying a new graphics card or extra RAM? Because I didn't have any problem running Need For Speed Underground 1 and 2 on the very same computer. Help! Thanks in advance.

It means you have to buy a new video card with more memory. A good 256 mb card I would recommend.

Are you referring to a graphics card or RAM? If it's the former, how much would a 256MB card cost?

It really means both GFX cards have their own RAM onboard. Somewhere in the range from 50 to 80 bucks should get you a budget one that would work, it would have to be compatible, if you run a couple of bits of software, run sysspec from here http://www.alexnolan...are/sysspec.htm and just search on google for a program called CPU-Z and put the sysspec report in here and tell us what cpu.z says on the mainboard tab about your graphical interface type and speed. That way we can tell you what kind of card you can get.

Hopefully you have enough memory in your pc also. Dont try playing that game with anything less than 512 mb ram in your pc. I hope you have that much atleast. I recommend atleast 1 gb of ram for that game to play nicely and a good video card of course with 256 mb ram on the video card.
