as so many others I too have some issues with Civ4.
1. On large+ maps the game will eventually be too slow to play, this seems to be due to the AI's actions. To check I ran a big game with continents, and did not explore anything, nor did I accept any world map trades, and as long as the AI nations were in the "black" portion of the world map, no problem, so I saved played another 50 or so turns, still no slow down. Then I reloaded, and traded all maps, and immediately I started to have a slow down on everything.
2. From time to time, if I move the cursor around, the game will freeze, remove all graphics except the very earth, showing only mountains/deserts/sea/lakes/grassland/forest etc, but no roads/resources/cities/units
3. Random CTD
My system is more than capable to cope (well it is supposed to), with 1 gig RAM, some 150Gig free HD space, 256Mb graphics card, no internal sound or such. And I had no problems running games like BF2/swg (on high detail)/wow etc. I have tried new drivers for everything, older drivers nothing helps, the problems are the same with CIV4 v1.00, v1.08 and v1.09
