    Hi,

    Is it possible to run the Dawn demo with 256mb system ram?

    I tried several times and I always get an Illegal operation in XP and 98 with different dirver versions.... I have a xfx fx 5200 128mb.

    That and your video card would be putting a lot of stress on your system to run the demo - you would probably need 512mb to run it.

    Really, i thought we did have SSE1 :confused: :confused: :confused: :confused:. Anyways, i was looking at the min. spec list for the Dawn Demo, and it said that you need 512 MB if RAM, i think.

    Only Athlon XP's have the SSE1 instructions, earlier Athlons don't.

    Well, it really says you need 512mb, but i have 256 and win xp and run the demo flawlessly even with dozens of other apps running

    Well it depends on your screen resolution used during the graphic intense app.. To high res with a memory amount that isn't enough will force the computer to read from it's harddrive during the memory peaks no matter how fast your other computer is.. "Swapping"

    You could always reebot the comp, run the demo and then check in your task manager how high the peak usage is. Then do the thing all over again but with a different res and you'll see what I mean.. :devil win



    :cheers:
