Unhappy Saints Row The Third has stopped working / Failed to create graphics device

Hey all,
as many other people i bought Saints Row The Third due to the insane discount in the Summer Sale, but after 4 hours of installing i get a "Saints Row The Third has stopped working" error after i choose Direct X 9
And if i choose Direct X 10 & 11 i get a "Failed to create graphics device"


The error description with Direct X 9 is:

Problem signature:

Application Name: SaintsRowTheThird.exe
Application Version: 1.0.0.1
Application Timestamp: 4fbfd4af
Fault Module Name: SaintsRowTheThird.exe
Fault Module Version: 1.0.0.1

Could it be because my computer is too weak (Biggest problem is 1GB ram stick)


P.S. As a video card i have a GeForce 7900 GT/GTO. Will that be able to run SR:TT so i know if all i need is a RAM card

Graphics: 320MB Video RAM GPU w/ Shader Model 3.0 support. NVIDIA® GeForce® 8800 series or better. ATI Radeon™ HD3800 series or better





Your GPU sucks. Minimum is 8800. ( Time for upgrade? )

For the GPU i doubt it because from what i see the card has 520 MB of Dedicated Video RAM and the Pixel shader is a 3.0.
Will update if Nvidia driver update works

Did you ever find a solution? I'm in the same boat. Similar graphics card too (GeForce 7950 GT).

1GB RAM is not enough for this game, videocard is also below system requirements.

Stop trying to run this game until you have better hardware.
