Well, if you took the time to browse the forum, you'd realize there are a few postings similar to yours in regard the crashes. I would guess that the crash is related to your driver on the 5200 card, check nvidia's website, new drivers were released today. Download, install, then try the demo again. If this doesn't work, try playing without Fullscreen effects enabled. Post back with your results, thanks :).

myframeratesux , theres nothing wrong with your card (though you should upgrade when you get a shot ;) ). Its the game.

ClumsyOrchid, I don't mean to come off as an arrogant putz but you know full well the disabling the fullscreen FX will do nothing for the crash issue. It helped the menu corruption but with the new Nvidia patch its fixed. The major issue is the crashing and I haven't seen a single solitary fix that worked yet.

FWIW the crashes seem to coincide when a large amount of particle FX comes up (ie; explosions, launching the missles from the Ogre, etc).

Have you downloaded the latest nvidia drivers, released yesterday?

the new nvidia driver solved the lagginess issue but not the crash problem. it's just so fraustrating.
