Which graphics card do we need to run the game at maximun settings?


Obviously the Higher End Cards.

like 7950GT :D with all options set to High (full) & at 1920 x 1080 pixels if your monitor can supports it or get a HDTV.

will it work on 915 g express intel chipset with 512 DDR and P4.
NFS MW worked fine

Mostwanted and carbon are two completely different things.. one is built around a car and the other is built around a core. What i meant is, Mostwanted was a fast "ooohh aaahh" game by EA for NFS series to cover the drawbacks for Underground 2, with the same cars and a little modified maps plus new ones and enhanced eyecandy, Mostwanted arouse. Now.. as Mostwanted gave EA much time and new ideas, the direct X consortium moved on to the next level, so a completely new core, and to handle the new core.. new engine (not a car engine!) must be used (or mod the old one to work on new standards and functions) , the core is based on functions derivated from Direct X API which can work on virtually any system (there is no chance that they dont run), but when the new functions requires the usage of certain modules (shaders/renderers etc.,) it calls upon designated hardware "as directed by the API" (obviously the new Direct X), If its not been said earlier that when a new API is released.. then a new breed of grapics processors evolve. when you use older hardware and if the game doesnt find required resources it halts.

This doesnt mean that the game wont work on DX 8 and DX 9 cards, the API is backward compitable and will work on any card.. which can handle the newer instructions lol..

keep on pondering about this crap or get a new graphics card. :D

To play the game at max settings comfortably without AA you need a 7900GT for 10x7, a 7600GT is the bare minimum however the experience won't be that great.

With OP's rig, try 640x480 lowest.

It should work in XP.......at low settting but try to add 1GB of ram and share 128MB..with the gfx mem...896 MB of system mem will be better..
