    I have put this here because I hope this more hardware than the game---
    I installed COD AW (PC) 6 DVDs today-----
    it runs till the end of the opening cut scene & then crashes---
    right before this a System pop up comes up & says
    close program to save all data--low on memory
    has the game listed in the box---
    I have 8 GBs of RAM & my video card has 2 GB of VRAM-----
    I saw something on google about precache & games---
    when I installed my 120GB SSD / HHD I followed all the tweak web-sites &
    turned precache & super cache off (0) superfetch ???
    should I turn off all my SSD tweaks &
    see if the game runs okay------
    my monitor is 1920 x 1080p-- games shows native setting
    I tried rrunning the game in high something like 1445 x something--
    it did the exact samething---
    I looked on Activision support webpage
    Knowledge Base / All / Call of Duty Advanced Warfare PC Out of Memory Error
    Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare PC Out of Memory Error

    We are currently aware of an issue causing an Out of Memory error. You are probably low on hard disk space. (12) for some players playing Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare on PC. We are diligently working hard to resolve this issue.

    I have 61 GBs available on my SSD & like 200 GB available on my HHD.
    I spent my money on this ASUS STRIX 960gtx
    I can't afford to go buy one with 4+ GB of VRAM---I thought that was only for 4K resolution
    anyway---- I don't have 4K anything---

    P.s.--this game has been out since Nov 2014 so Activision isn't that in a hurry to patch the issue

    I was going to put in a screen shot of my options page for COD AW PC page--
    but print screen only shows a very small part of it in paint--

    but anyway----I have been playing around with settings for this game for last two days--
    the main change I made was in texture is to change it to normal--
    if I try to run it in my native resolution of 1920x1080p (full screen)--
    & with textures set to high---it says my dedicated VRAM isn't enough
    so I can leave textures on high & run at a smaller resolution--
    or what I'm doing is running at 1920x1080p native HD
    with textures set to normal--- VRAM changes from red to yellow in options
    with either these settings---- not sure if they have RED/YELLOW/ GREEN or what
    looks yellow is actually gold looking ????
    I've never seen what the game looks like on full HD resolution & High or Ultra High textures---
    only whats on videos on youtube---
    so to me the game looks good on my settings---
    I have a SSD windows 7 optimized---it kept coming up with low memory errors and
    crashed several times as I kept changing settings--
    doing some reading --unless U have a ton of regular ram--U need page file turned on
    and either set to a larger setting or system select.
    I went with system select
    crazy that I have 8gb of regular ram 2gb of vram and it still needs page file
    page file is cheaper than spending another 54$ for 2 more RAM sticks just to play this one game--
    I can see a very very slight lag if I really pay attention to Kevin Spacey's face in the cut screens--
    but in the campaign I don't have time to just set there & watch the background change so I
    never notice it---it doesn't seem to affect game play as far as I can tell-----
