    Hi,

    i've just assembled my pc with of the following:

    Motherboard- Asus P8H67-V LGA 1155
    VGA -Asus Radeon EAH6850/1Gb
    Processor core i5 2500 (3.3Ghz) 6mb
    RAM DDR3 (nano) 4GB
    power supply True power- 500 watt
    Monitor Viewsonic VX2451mh-LED (24 inch)
    Hard Disk 1 Tb
    windows 7 32bits

    NFS the Run keeps on crashing while playing with the highest resolution and display settings (ultra). I'm able to play only for some minutes in each races before it crashes. I've tried lowering the graphic settings and the screen resolution of the game to its lowest (low), it does play for a relatively longer period but eventually crashes. im having doubts about the vga cards and the power supply. please help....


    thanks in advance

    Is your RAM set to XMP profile?
    Is Windows updated via Windows Update?
    DirectX updated?
    Latest drivers installed?
    Have you tested with any other games/applications?

    what is XMP?
    Yes all the drivers and directX are updated as well as windows. the other games (call of duty mw 3, nfs hot pursuit, batman arkham city) do work perfectly at their respective highest display settings.

    thanks for your reply

    XMP is the Intel Extreme Memory Profile.Please refer on your motherboard manual book under RAM section regarding how to enable XMP feature in the bios.

    Try to defrag the game folder.This can help improve loading performance.I can suggest you to use Defragler

    Sounds like ram issues, possibly temp issues as well. What sort of case do you have? Take the side off and blow a fan in there and see if your game time increases before crashing. Also make sure you mem timings are all ok or set to auto in bios.

    That's your major problem there. Why are you still using 32-bit instead of 64-bit? You might as well be using Windows NT or XP SP3 32-bit.
    Get the upgrade for 64-bit since you're limiting yourself.
