    I second this. GraphicsSettingsDX9.ini with tweaks for performance sake. For example:
    Code:
    UseScreenShots = 1
    TerrainPageinSpeedStill = 4
    TerrainPageinSpeedMoving = 4

    Almost same
    I play often marathon/big or Huge with some heavy modmods (not too much...) 1000+ turns without CTD on a W7-64b / 4gb ram. Rare CTD 'light' (Restart with previous autosave fix) from ~t800
    DX10 on a 2gb Graphcard
    Civ5Screen0041.png

    Most importantly, I boot first on a no LAN minimalist w7 install for VP only. <900kb ram used.

    Many (a lot, a lot) PC with an OS installed for a while are full of 'bachground' apps, services, processes that use hundreds kb or even 1.x gb of ram before civ5 is launched.
    For those who get CDT often before the end of the game, you should consider, also, to "clean" a bit the base OS system. It helps.

    Thanks man, you gave me a solid PTSD.
    Way back, when CIV V came out, I bought me a new Computer (it was due anyway) with 16 GB RAM so that CIV V would run smoothly.
    Only later did I learn that Civ can't even use more than 4 GB.
