i have a dual core AMD 3800+, NVidia 7900GT KO, 2GB RAM, plenty of disc space..

but when I launch the demo, the mouse is very sluggish - and that's just on the opening screen to create a character!!!

I run autodetect on the video settings and it sets it to 16x10 widescreen, 800x600, High

am i missing something?

Its should run pretty good on that system. I ran it at 1920x1080 with everything turned up and it ran good. Try new drivers.

nope.. didn't help much... i noticed that my CPU usage hovers around 55% (peaking at 74% when loading map resources).

i noticed after the driver update that my mouse ran faster on teh opening screen.. but as soon as I selected Settings, bam.. it slowed down to a crawl.

I ran it on a dual core system with a 7600GT and it ran very well. I didn't really like it all that much, but it ran well.

I ran it on a 7600gt at 1680* and on a 7900sli at 1920* and both ran fine.
