    Sometimes when I go to play Mafia, while the computer is loading the game into the main menu a message box will come up, floating around the screen saying "Out of Sync", at which point I either have to restart, or press ctrl alt del and exit the game. Is this a problem with the game, or video card? As far as I know, this only happens with Mafia.

    Just to enlighten Sync is a server side thing. It happens when you 'sync' up with the server or whoever you are playing with losing sync causes lag or worse DEATH! erm i mean losing connection.

    Except Mafia is a single player game....

    That 'sync' error usually happens when the software tries to force a resolution or refresh rate that the monitor can't handle, so it shows that message, and then it should go back to a resolution that works... try the patch that sleekluxury posted, and if that doesn't work, try lowering the graphics resolution in the game before you play.
