  3. Hi, I been having a problem with Mirrors Edge on my Desktop PC. I have a OK system with a 4890oc. I’ve had the game for a while and I upgraded the fans and the computer case for more air. It helped on all my other games there really is no problem with my other games getting stuck or frezzing. I EA website and the back of the cd case the Mirrors Edge game came in says I need a 2.4 ghz processor. I have a 2.66 quad core that I overclock and lower and raise the grafics on. I ajust the games gracfic options and still get the same freezes. But only on Mirrors Edge. I have Driver update software and I check the computer’s temps after quiting the game they are normal.
    Please Help.
