KOTOR- gameplay choppy

the game runs smoothly when i first start it, then when i start walking through certain areas like the apartment areas, the game gets choppy. when I exit the game, i notice the virtual memory is tuned all the way up causing the desktop to run slow. the PC is 2GHZ, 256 ram. when i do the game's hardware scan, it says i only got 255 ram, and that it doesn't meet the 256 ram requirement. anyone run into the same problem and find a way to fix it?

Buy more ram. Seriously, as cheap as ram is today, its the easiest thing for you to do ro resolve the problem.

I had the same problem, mine got choppy in fog areas. Just be a gig and should be cool. www.crucial.com
