I'd say your video card would probably be the weak link and your 1 gb RAM. So unless you're running at some tiny resolution I'd have to say no you probably won't run near max.

I agree, very high default.
Cut down most of the frame eaters, heavy autogen, clouds and all AI especially aircraft.
Cut out shadows.

On the system I have, I have autogen on sparse and custom scenery. Aircraft is on high.

Which produced this -

That was with no autogen. I use 1024 resolution as I have a widescreen lcd. The highest I can go is 1440x900 (not sure aout the 900).

OK would the processor i mentioned and the 8600GT Improve it.

Chipset - Geforce 8600 GT
Memory - 256MB GDDR3
Core Frequency - 540MHz
Memory Frequency - 1400MHz
Interface - PCI-Express
Memory Bus - 128-bit
Stream Processors - 32
Max. Resolution - 2560 x 1600
SLI Ready - Yes
Output - 1. Dual-Link DVI 2. HDTV

Thanks for your help guys.

You can run most setting's if not all of high. If you turn off Ai you will get decent Frame rates.
