I have a 3850 and I run on maximum. In order to do that, you need a double core cpu if you want the jerseys to move. So, a 3850 will get him running the game, but not on maximum with that "intel 4." He could probably put most things at ultra high, but he can't put players at ultra high.

Darn! This sucks! I downloadedd the demo some time ago and for some reason the full game won't work! I thought the whole point of a demo was that you could play the full version if the demo worked! Wholey crud! I just need .4 ghz! Does anyone know how to get steam to let it go?

I recall reading that 2K10 would run better on lower range systems, but yes similar system requirements.

Sure. More ram is always better, but ram doesn't usually improve performance much by itself.

I don't know. Steam shouldn't completely stop you from running a game just because your cpu has a little less mhz.

You cant. Everything is good except for the ghZ. You need 2.8 ghZ! Same problem as me. :(

actually, i already got it and i run it pretty well, but the highest i can run it with playable fps are 800X600(with no MSAA) or 640X480(with X2 MSAA)
low crowd, mid sideline and max palyer(the animated jersey does it for me<nomo>) and the tex low

Just some info:
Pdub: my friend upgraded he's pc to hd3650, 2gb ram (2,66 ghz, single core) and he can't run the game as high as hoped (all high, player detail also high, not very high), in fact he told that the game isn't even fluent with the minimum settings :P but it know it shows more than just black screen! ;)

So everybody with similar pc's would know, it can run it, but at minimum settings with some lag here and there.

thnx for support!

I have a 3850 and a dual core 2.66 with 3 gb of ram. The 3850 can run games twice as fast as the 3650, especially if his 3650 is a 128-bit instead of a 256-bit. He can't run very high player detail without a second core, which was known since the game was released. The cloth animations need that extra thread. If he can't get the game running well on minimum, then his system isn't optimized for running games, or he has his eye candy cranked up in his video card control panel.

No, you won't even crack minimum settings. Ya see, 2K9/2K10 actually looks better than real life.

If you are talking about my post, then you misunderstood me. Right now I have light years old PC and I don't know a thing about hardware in present days. I stopped following PC hardware when Geforce 4 came out.

PS. I didn't even check system requirements for 2k9.

Sorry again, I'm not like that

PDUB. my bad, he got and hd 3850. i typed it incorrectly..not an 3650, but a 3850. it's seems that the problem is in the single core. i have no doubts in that vid.card.

"then his system isn't optimized for running games, or he has his eye candy cranked up in his video card control panel." - What does this mean, is there anything he can do to speed it up?

thnx mate!

so will a higher processor improve the way the game looks? or it depends on other components?
