Runs bad at here.... AMD X2 64 5200+, 4GB 800Mhz DDR2, ATI HD2600 Pro 512MB (fps 15-20)
and my laptop too, AMD 2GHz, 3GB 800Mhz DDR2, ATI Mobility HD4550 512MB (fps 20)

change the graphic setting, and fps is still the same...

trying catalyst 9.9, 9.8, 9.5... nothing happens (still the same fps's)

Windows 7 (Build 7068)

You know what is funny, all my gaming clan and friends that build AMD/ATI systems have non stop problems on XP/Vista/W7. Mostly lagging, chopping, and just pathetically slow...and these are PRO built systems! I have build computers for many years, and I am an Intel/Nvidia guy, and NEVER have any system I made had those issues (excluding out dated graphic/cpu of course). I would honestly say though...your biggest issue is A: the brand of video card sucks B: Your ram sucks or you have Corsair...which is the worst EVER! Use Mushkin, Patriot, or Kingston HyperX (absolutely no value ram LOL) although Kinston is a bit slower yet it is stable as a rule (some motherboards reject Mushkin for some reason...which I would say that mobo blows EVGA! their boards are so ram picky, sheesh)
No I am not an AMD/ATI hater, I just prefer smooth systems. ROFL

I play alot of games on this sistem for ages and one i did have problem.. and i know this is all nvidia intel deed they want to kill amd ati that is for sure... well one proof of angry ati amd usres are here

AMD Game Forums - ATI/AMD performance on Need for Speed Shift
(this is the link to other forum just for demonstration, nothing else)

And it is strange but the game runs poor also on my macintosh G5 with intel quad core and 8800gt with 4gb of ram... I hate nvidia bc they keep the monopol, and they buy ageia phisicx and call it nvidia phisicx and make it work only on nvidia graphic cards,like ati cant do the phisics of flags effect in mirrors edge loool ... ati vs nvidia battle is no good for end users!

Windows 7 (Build 7068)

Hey the first thing an AMD guy said that made sence. However, before Nvidia bought Physix, Ageia's still did not work with ATI. It was not because of the video card war, rather it was because ATI was working on their own (name started with an H, goes back a few years so dont remember it). The game developers are the ones that went with the PhysiX rather than ATI's version, for reasons I do not know...perhaps Ageia's was better? That is speculation of course. All I know is the i5's price vs. Performance, AMD is dead if they don't do something quick...and as an Intel user, I DO NOT WANT AMD to die because then Intel can do what it has always dreamed of...rape every PC user and charge $500 on "budget" processors and sell mid levels for what the extremes currently go for! THAT WOULD SUCK
Anyways, which 8800GT is it, I know the 8800GTS models were good, but some of the GT's were not. It is possible that card is a first generation and not a "improved" model. I even noticed the 320MB was faster than the 500MB and the 640MB, etc, something to do with the memory modules on them.
Updating Physix is not going to resolve it. I am going to get the game so I can look at what has changed on the engine. Maybe I can figure out a solution as modding either windows core or the game engine itself to run on peoples dinosaur computers is what I do (not that I am calling your computer that lol). One thing, disable any motion blur, bloom, and particle effects, post effects, those are killers. Smoke is bad too as that is a Physix effect. The 8800's took a dump when Post Effects and Particle Effects were introduced...which was never really resolved untill the GTX 260 and up cards. Looks like game developers are in kahoots with Nvidia? ROFL

PS Don't feel too bad, a buddy of mine has a Sapphire 4870X2 and my GTX260 at 35% the cost murders his card. Another buddy of mine has an ASUS 7600GT TOP (256MB) that out preforms it in Demigod by 20FPS, now that is serious ATI chunk blowing...not to mention the 90C temp...which after my air cooling mod brought down to 50C!

Shift-E, Shift-L not working sticky keys off
My old keyboard was refusing to re-initialize after the peripheral reset during win 7 boot. It's about a decade old, so I just assumed it was dead. I replaced it with my wireless keyboard I use for working on computers, Ms laser 8000. My keyboard now initializes fine, but shift L and Shift E are...
NFS Shift or Shift 2 or something else?
I am looking for racing game, more of a SIM for PC. Graphics need to be good. Confused between Shift 1 and 2. Or is there some other which I should look into other than these 2? BTW, will not be using Wheel but gamepad or less likely keyboard.
Shift 2
My advice....Don't bother! Managed to get it a day early , what a let down. To me the graphics seem even inferior to the original Shift. Car handling not impressive. No wow factor what so ever.
