comment I have a mediocre GPU but loads of RAM, is there any way to gain more performance?
You could do what I do - plug in an old top-of-the-line 21" CRT (that cost $2000 new and about $50 now) and play at 1024x768, or even 800x600. Much better colour reproduction and contrast make up somewhat for the slightly lower resolution.

Not a real answer, but there might be a slight possibility the ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470 can borrow some system RAM somehow - a lot of integrated graphics solutions do it. Not sure it would even help, though (and you'd have to google it yourself, I don't know).

comment (How) Is it possible to get the full version of a game if I can only buy its low violence version?
Maybe this doesn't help but: personally, if any game that I'd legitimately bought had some annoying problem with it, I think I'd simply pirate a working version of it without any concern for whether that was technically legal or not. Can't see how you can get a ban doing that (though multiplayer games are different, I guess).

comment What important differences are there between the various online game distributors?
@Aarobot No probs. I'm curious about the other details too, but since no-one else has answered yet (and I don't know any more than I've said) I thought I'd bump the question by saying what I do know (activity on the question can increase exposure and so attract more answers).

comment What are the easiest PC keyboard controls for the Assassin's Creed series?
Come on, people! Just buy a decent gamepad. A good PS2 dualshock style controller costs about $5 on ebay. USB adapters for top quality console controllers you probably already own start from about $3. If your gaming rig cost you $1000, that's about 0.5% of your investment. Would you use an old yellow composite AV cable with your $2000 HDTV? (This is off-topic, but I see this all the time and had to vent. Sorry).
