I just bought splinter cell double agent only to find that it doesn't work with my 8800gts even though on their website at the system requirements[/img] lab section it says my computer meets the system requirements.

I called the ubisoft tech support line and they say they can't help me and are working on the problem with 8800 cards then when I asked for a refund they wouldn't give me one and of course no store allows you to return opened PC games so basically i'm screwed. The game has been out for 5 months and they haven't fixed the problem so i'm guessing they never will.

Which Windows do you have?

The game is a buggy piece of crappola console port, if you have an x360, rent it lol.

Im with Stemnin. Just hire it out if you have a 360. If you dont, hire out the console $50 deposit + $10 a night. Or borrow from a friend.

I finished that game in 2 days when i hired it. Was really disappointed at the length of the game, but overall it was a great experience :D 

If no 360 available or you dont want to hire one. Bug Ubifags to death. New video card drivers should also help to fix the problems as they tend to optomise new games with the hardware.

What are you talking about?

I played through the game with my 8800GTS on XP with no problems. Just go to the UBISoft forums and post your issue there. The game definitely works on 8800 cards.

Can you give me a link to where you found a solution or tell me how you got it to work. I haven't seen any solutions.
