Video Card- NVIDIA GeForce 7600 gt
But my problem is severe lag when I play a game. For example; when I play Titan Quest I tend to lag a lot when there are a lot of enemies on the screen. I lag even when Im not moving, the particles lag lol. The settings aren't even on the complete middle. If you need any other info just ask and ill give it to you.
hmm, celgorm, at 3.06GHz it shouldnt be lagging. Never heard of titan quest lol, what resolution is it and what is the recomended specifacations on the box of the game?
i think your problem might be hyperthreading. go to system properties and tell us what it says, if im right, it should say Intel(R) Pentium 4 3.06GHz, Pentium 4 1.53GHz 1.0GB System RAM. If it says something like this, or at least the 3.06 1.53 part, you vhave hyperthreading on. go into BIOS and turn off hyperthreading, and check back and tell us if it still lags!
uh if it says 3.06GHz and not 1.53GHz then umm, run memtest or something and check back!
