P4 2.4 Ghz

Been a fan of the original. Really itching to play the sequel.

You could just check the system requirements for the game. It isn't hard.

Really depends on what you are looking for; can it run it at all, or can it run it well.

Considering the minimum requirements:

* Operating System: Windows 2000, Windows XP
* Processor: 2.4GHz Intel Pentium 4® or AMD Athlon® equivalent
* Memory: 512MB RAM
* Hard Disk Space: 6.5 GB free
* Video: ATI Radeon 9800 or NVIDIA GeForce 600 or higher
* Sound: DirectX® 9.0c compatible sound card or higher
* DirectX®: DirectX® 9.0c (included) or higher

It would seem that you should be able to run it, but not very well. 512 mb of ram is really low for gaming.

As Acmurphy 512 Mb is low, but your MAIN problem here is the 266 Mhz .. it's a damn slow memory, which probably means your mobo is very slow too. I think you will only be able to play it with decent FPS on low quality.

Increasing memory will not help much since they are so slow =/ unless your mobo can support at least 400Mhz ones.

Neverwinter Nights 2 is a REAL resource hog. I'm currently running a 2.6GHz processor, about 2 GB worth of RAM and a 6800 GTX and I still have to turn down or off most of the settings in order to get a decent framerate.

You can still play it, I'm sure, but your experience of it won't be very good as you'll have to turn off a lot of the visual eye candy. Large battles will also severely tax your machine.

Wouldn't this request have also fitted in already existing threads, like
"The RPG thread",
"Post your PC specs"
or - maybe -
"Computer Problems"? :|

I'm not nagging, but this is a thread that will attract about half a dozen answer posts and then it will fade into obscurity, like some others out there... I just want to help keep the place organized.

If we aim for "small number of threads that are always alive" we kill the reason for a forum =p I think this is a fair thread.

Talking about resource hog you should see Oblivion XD~ my AMD64 3500+ 1Gb FSB 1Gb RAM 666Mhz and 7600GT running the game at 1024x768 still gives me 10fps on outside if I do not tone some itens down :cry: and it's older than neverwinter nights =/

I'm always trying to keep things simple, that's all. :)

I would say that you need to upgrade your RAM to at least 1GB if you want to play that game smoothly, without constant hitching. Also you will have to turn down the graphical settings since the 7300GT isn't exactly a superb graphics card.

Thanks for the responses so far.

I reckoned it's not gonna fly. It really is too bad. NWN was a really good game for a cheap bastard like me because of all the modules freely distributed online.

I wanted to play with my Epic Bard/Fighter/Dragondisciple again.

I agree. NWN2 has tremendous potential. I've played around with the Toolset and the quality of the terrain, placeables, monsters etc. is WAY beyond NWN1. Given time, people will craft some truly awe-inspiring custom modules for it.

However, I think NWN2 is one of those games released before its time. It's technical requirements are so heavy that it cut out of a lot of the old NWN fan-base who couldn't (or wouldn't) upgrade their machines to handle such a monster. As a result, the active community for NWN2 is much smaller than it was for the first.

Hopefully in time as more people upgrade their machines, the NWN2 community will expand and grow. If not, it'll be left behind in favor for more recent RPGs and its potential will just be a tragic waste; it could have been a success, if it was just released at the right time when the market was most placed to take advantage of it.

The requirements are high, but the graphics aren't anything spectacular; and, having a little programming background, I hate working with inefficient systems.

The first was really tough to patch, and the mostly manual installation of mods, haks, and other stuff kinda grinds.
