Computer questions...

Post by Monty Burns » Wed Sep 09, 2009 7:52 pm

I have finally decided to upgrade the computer and I am happy with the specifications however I have also ordered Vista Home Premium because I wanted the free Windows 7 upgrade offer.

What I want to know:
1) Does SWG will have any issues with the 64 Bit version of Vista?
2) Are there any issues with the Nvidia N295GTX video cards?

Well i can answer the first question.

I have Vista Ultimate 64 at home, and it's running normal. Well sometimes (1 of 30 trys) when you try to log on another char there is an error which forces swg to close, but i think other windows versions have this error as well.

Nice card Monty just looking at it now trying to find the shader for it. There shouldn't be a problem but for swg you can run a lowend card instead of a highend card like you have. I have the 512mb GTX and swg runs very well. Detail is good and rendering is good but I don't expect you too get anything more out of swg then just basics. SOE is finally updating EQ2 with a better shader package which was needed. SWG is a different matter altogther.
