Bioshock Issue

Jeez such an old game and i am having some issues with it >.<
Just picked it up for £3.49 off Steam...i have on Xbox already but could not pass up playing through again with superior graphics :) 
Anyway, attempts to change the resolution to 1600x1200 cause the game to crash.
Also i tried to play at the default just to check out the effects, and once i surfaced from the water in the intro my screen flipped to horizontal green bars for a few secs and then crashed out.

Specs: Phenom Agena @ 2450 MHz, 4GB RAM, Radeon 4850, plenty of cooling runs Crysis et al so im thinking theres a driver issue here?

Any help appreciated.

Obvious things - have you updated drivers, is your power supply sufficient, does it happen in any other games etc.

this post wont be that informative but:

bioshock is LITTERED with bugs. i couldn't even get the damn game to run! it would keep crashing as soon as i docked the mini sub at the beginning of the game so i said screw it. best of luck.

I'll second that. But it can't hold a candle to Diablo 3 when it comes out in 14 years...

I also bought in steam for £3 :D 

i would reocmmend running in dx9. Right click the game, go to properties, set launch options and type -dx9

may help.
