This game runs sweet on my system pentium 4 3.0ghzE 1gb of DDRPC2700 X800XL i run it everything on high
you get a great sense of speed my hd is about to die thought its a 4 1/2 year old maxtor 40gig IDE 7200 ata

it spins up in weird times and stuff during games and using windows and iam getting disk write errors in win2k
i gotta wait til friday though til i can order a new sata drive
but i really like this racing game can't wait for the full game i like the cars too good selectiion for the demo
i wish they would have let you adjust the sensativity with the gamepad or keyboard controls its kinda touchy
the sound is ok i wish there was more Sound support
like EAX HD or something like in bf2 i think bf2 has teh best sound quality . As of right i need to get a 2GB Kit DDR 3200 and and a new HD to enjoy these games without hicups also iam not even using HT as win2k doesn't support it what crap is that !!! so i have to wait til monday when i can get Win XP PRO will see how that goes

Open up regedit:

HKLM\Software\EA Games\NFS MW Demo\g_MotionBlurEnable = 0 will turn off Motion Blur.

After having testet NFS:MW thoroughly it seems that the game has a similar problem as Doom3, Quake4 and Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit 2 - namely that the game uses a 60 Hz tic rate (some people cannot see this - but try to play Doom3 or Quake4 for a while in 60 Hz or 120 Hz on a CRT using a powerful system that can sustain 60 FPS, then it is nearly impossible to accept the horrible jerkiness accompanied by refresh-rates that do not match "60"). Therefore NFS:MW will only perform optimally when frames per second hit 60 or 120 (or 180, 240 etc.) using active vsync - and the game will tend to be a bit jerky and "out of sync" especially when hitting in the 50'ies (which greatly hurts immersion - especially if someone remembers the great arcade games from SEGA that always performed at 60 FPS/Hz). So 40 FPS really feels like in the low 20'ies in this game. I have tested this over and over using FRAPS, so when people in this thread refer to NFS:MW being playable using "X" settings and "Y" resolution, then I would read such a bold statement as if these persons are getting at least 60 FPS or 120 FPS (which they probably are not at maxed settings in resolutions beyond 1024x768 unless powerful SLI or Crossfire setups are being used).

So my 5 cents would be to be careful with subjective estimations - telling someone that NFS:MW is awesome on your system may not provide other people with relevant information unless you provide extensive data and objective measurement on your performance.
This might help you from earlier in the thread

If you get an error installing it just extract 0compressed.zip into the same root directory where you were trying to install from, then just execute speedDEMO.exe and play.
