Default Anway to make this game run better?

I just downloaded 4 story and it has graphics equiv to WoW, I took off everything in the graphics settings that will make the game go slower, everything is now off, and the game still runs a little bit better than a slide show....anyone have any ideas?

Your video card isn't very good...at all, so you probably won't be getting any decent frame rates.

yeah, if you pay like over $1000 to get some good FPS. Which is not worth it.

Yeah man I feel your pain, I used to play wow on a powerbook G4 667 mhz (always at the top of the battlegrounds)

Just wait till you can build yourself a quality PC do some odd jobs to speed up the process and you'll be happier playing your game with your new comp

I think he should wait until he finishes his next job before doing it. I have a P4 3GHZ that I can loan him, and he could buy a GX2 for it, then use that until he can get the rest of the stuff.
