Since we have this thread going. Has anyone had any issues running the game on ATi 4xxx and 5xxx cards? Running on a 5850 on Win7, I've been getting very poor performance, and it's very inconsistent. I was previously running it on a 4670 on WinXP and it ran perfectly fine at 1080p. On my 5850 and Win7 though it actually runs a bit worse.

Yeah but i am replaying it right now and it kinda stuck on some parts because of quadcore, so set it up to run in one core just to be safe.

pretty much all games from 2000 onwards run on Windows 7.

How'd you do that? Outside of Process Affinity, I'm not aware of anything like that in Win7.

There was a program on xp called set affinity but i dont see why you cant just ran the game, alt tab on the main menu and set it in the task manager and process affinity.

I encountered a weird issue where the fps was insanely low and I had to disable some USB devices to get it back up. I have the retail version with all patches. Once I disabled the devices, it ran fine though, very smooth.
