Got a questions for the computer peeps amongst us. I'm hoping that I can get a little advice.
I recently picked up a new computer - Intel dual core processor, 3GB RAM and a Radeon X1650 graphics card. I assumed that this would be enough processing power to run newer games with fairly bumped up resolution.
I made sure my driver was up to date on my graphics card and I ensured that DirectX was installed.
But the games I've been running have been performing poorly, even with the resolution settings set fairly low, such as 800x600 with most games set at the 'medium' graphics processing level. I'm thinking that there's an issue somewhere, something that I've overlooked that's not letting me run my games at the resolution and speed I'd prefer.
Any suggestions on what to investigate?
