Resident Evil 5 requrements help.

I'm condsidering buying resident evil 5. The recommended specs are 2 GB RAM, and AMD Phenom x 4. The minimum specs are AMD Athlon x64 x2, and 1 GB RAM.
Well, I have the AMD Athlon x64 x2, but I have four GB RAM installed (3.25 usable). Would this made any noticable difference? I'm not in the mood to buy a $55 game thats gonna lag. Any ideas? Thanks alot in advance

the bootleneck will always be HD, interent dl speed. LAG is a funtion of ping most of the time, you can minimize the effect but are at the mercy of your ISP.

The most important thing is the graphics card. And most new graphics cards have their own GPU (graphics processing unit), so the processor speed wont make much diffirence. Yes, with that processor and 4 gigs of RAM, the game will run fine, but only if you have a good graphics card.

EDIT: Just checked, your graphics card should be able to easily handle the game. Have fun!

I have a NVIDIA GeForce 210, the Direct X diagnostics is messed because it said I have approximately 1895 MB in the card, but the box, says it's 512. So yeah, thats the recommended amount for RE4, plus I have alot of Win7 graphic settings off, like Aero and such.

Alrighty, I'll try the demo and see how it goes. I didn't even know there WAS a demo. So I'll check it out.

Resident Evil 4 on Windows 7?
Hi I just installed Resident Evil 4 in my laptop, and every time I start it I get the message "game.exe" has stopped working. Could it be because of the video card? because I haven't installed any drivers yet. Or could it be compatibility issues? Thanks in advance

Anyone run the Resident Evil 5 benchmark?
Just curious. I downloaded it over the weekend and mucked around with it a bit. I got a solid 32-33 fps @2560 x 1600 with every setting in-game maxed out. I am pretty sure I should get more than that once the SLI profile for that game actually gets released. It was kind of the same with the Devil...
