Default RBR crashes ...question about specs

I've just bought RBR, and it crashes to desktop before it starts. I am
running a AMD 1.44GHz which is rated at 1.66GHz RBR neads a min of 1.6 Do
you think this is my probem or something more serious, as I meet the rest of
the specs.
2nd question. does my GF fx5900 have pixel shader support ???

OK looks like the upgrade might be the best option.
I've been out of teh loop in regards to CPU's for a while now, my
preferance is for AMD , which one is the best bang for bucks CPU at the
moment?

I picked up a 2700+ XP for around $80 a number of months ago, I would
imagine it's even cheaper now. So far, it's run everything I've thrown
at it just fine.


The mobo to support it was all of $130 about a year and a half ago as
well, so I imagine that's much cheaper these days as well.

Check your mobo manual but you could probably put an XP2000 or maybe
even up to an XP2400 in it on a 133Mhz (266) FSB. After that they use a
166Mhz (333) FSB so you'll probably need a new mobo, but if you're going
to get a new mobo anyway go with an A64 imo.
