For computers using built-in graphics chipsets, the game requires at least: * Intel Integrated Chipset, 945GM or above. * 2.6 GHz Pentium D CPU, or 1.8 GHz Core 2 Duo, or I was able to resolve all graphics woes by disabling the CATALYST A.I. We'll have to see if reports come in with errors. Can anyone help me with this? news

Intel integrated chipsets featuring underclocked parts, such as the 945GU, GML, and GMS, will not perform adequately. This needs to be turned off if you want to run Spore without graphics issues! when i am in a space stage game i found that when i click on the black hole closest to earth, the game instantaneously crashes. I was able to leave all my other graphics card options maxed out to "Quality." The Catalyst A.I.
Standalone cards that are installed in vanilla PCI slots (not PCIe or PCIx or AGP), such as some GeForce FX variants, will perform poorly. It likely has nothing to do with you.
