I recently picked up Mass Effect for my PC. Now I understand as a new game it requires a newer system than the one I might have, but the problems I'm having are also happening to people with systems that are only a couple of months old if their tech support forums are to be believed. To put this whole thing into context, the rig I run is as follows: CPU: AMD64 3700+ @ 2.2Ghz RAM: 1GB DDR 400 GPU: nVidia GeForce 8800GT w/512MB Scrn: 40" 1080p LCD I have tried turning down the settings, I have updated every single major device driver on the machine (video, sound, motherboard chipset and hell even my keyboard). I still get a situation where 30 seconds into a game I either get a black screen with continued game sound or I get a frozen game and I gotta do a hard reboot. I've checked the BioWare website and there are no patches (although being brand new its not surprising). Has anyone else who purchased the game experienced the same thing?
