    Surely you've thought of reducing your video settings. Right?

    If they can be reduced further and you are having performance problems, then reducing is probably a good way to go.

    My comp stats are near your specs wicked...including the graphics card(i think its the same one i got...maybe).

    For me, I reduced the grass detail down to none, as well as the terrain detail....it seems to help a bunch for me, while I am still able to ramp up the unit detail to its highest and get little lag.

    Yeah, grass at low helps a lot.

    probably none of these answers will fit your problem:
    i had a similar problem.

    i have following pc specs:

    A64 x2 3600+
    1 GB Ram
    GF 7900GS
    win2k

    the main problem with RTW is, that the X2 processor slows your game down, because of uneven load balancing between the 2 cpu-cores (very simplified spoken).

    A. if you run WinXP, everything should run fine AFTER you installed a little patch from the AMD-website.

    B. if you run Win2K you probably need to install a CPU-management tool.
    i use "easy toolz" for this. here you need to restrict the rtw.exe to one core.
    alternatively you can do this in the taskmanager manually everytime.


    this should improve your peformance.

    Very good advice above.

    I would just add, to make sure Anti-Aliasing and Anti-Sotropic filtering settings are reasonably low on your G-Card if you haven't got it set to 'program preference' because even if your game setting for this is turned off it will still Anti-alias if it is turned on, on your G-Card.

    Turn off campaign shadows! You don't need them and they will eat up your RAM.

    The 'Effects detail' setting also does not need to be so high for the benefit it gives visually, so turn that down to low.

    Also make sure you run your desktop at the same resolution you do the game (in your case 1024x768x32) otherwise you may see an adverse effect from that also.

    Make sure you have recently scanned your hard-disk for errors and done a de-fragmentation on it (boring but it works).

    Also you could turn off most of your background tasks and applications in task manager to eek out those last few K's from your processor, but if you do this, leave 'Explorer.exe' and everything under 'SYSTEM' well alone.

    There are also some nice little free ware programs out there that free up system RAM, which in my own experience works wonders on my system (especially if your machine loads lots of things on startup).

    I really see no apparent reason why your set up shouldn't run this game at close to full settings.

    Hope this helps.
