well i used to play alot on my old computer and now that i have a more capable computer i decided to max the settings and try it out, but it does not work right. When i play their is a very high framerate the whole time, the suddenly the game will freeze in random places. i have no idea what to do. the answer completely eludes me.

While waiting for the gurus to stop by, try the thread on AMD dualcore problem fix (http://www.lucasforums.com/showthread.php?t=167523) to see if that helps. Also, make sure your video card drivers are up to date if you haven't done that already--I think the 'fail' is coming from that but don't quote me--I'm don't begin to have expertise on this. Turn down all the graphics options and see if that helps, and then add them back in one by one.

The guys who know computers a lot better than me hopefully will stop by within a few days to help out. It's all volunteer here so it may take some time.

Is this computer custom made?

If so, i suggest askignt he experts, the people whos ell you the computers in the first place.
I mean seriously... i have a Nvidia 6200 card and overall 1024 ram from both that and my CPU, but you've rediculously got 4096 + 512 from your not-working video card... You only need 1-2 Gigs of Ram overall if you want to run this game at highest graphics.
I've got a 6 year old somewhat upgraded computer and it can handle this game fine, but not some other games.
If you do get your video card working, you should be able to handle pretty much any game you want at highest specs. The reason you need a working video card is because it has special adaptivity to graphics programming whereas Ram only for giving an extra boost.

Arcesious, if his game is playing at all, his video card likely is working.

Gotanks, where is it freezing? Dantooine?

No- look at his Nvidia video card. it's not even functioning!

The only reason his game is playing is because of that rediculously high 4096 Ram.
I used to be able to play Starwars Empire at war Forces forces of Corruption, whihc only needed 64 Ram to play, and i only had 768 Ram and an outdated video card, my computer being under minimum system requirements for that game at that time until i got a Nvidia 6200 card, which speeded it up considerably. without the new video card, my Ram was the only thig letting me play the game, and the game would randomly crash, and when i added soem mods to the game, my ram finally gave out on it and i couldn't paly it again until i got the new video card.
This is the same case for this guy's computer. It's just that at certain points, a proper video card is needed functioning, and if it isn't functioning, the gam ewill crash at the point where it really needs it.
He said it was randomly freezing, and that means it's not his game that's the problem, it's his Video card, which seems to be conficting with his other computer components. i'll coem back later when i have more information for fixing these isssues his computer is having.

it might be functioning but the config prog cant pick up the specs and stuff and yes i did build it myself. i dont think this prog was designed to know what quad-sli is so that is why it is reading as failed and somewhere on this forums it said i might not detect newer nvidia drivers as passed on the driver test.
