Hi, first of all I know it's not the best to start a fourm with a help topic. Seckond I never write theese. Third I'm just a gamer, thats all i do is game I have no real knowlege of a computer other than what you might run into with games. One last thing I'm 17 and my grammer/spelling will probably get worse from all this typing so please bear with me.
I'm not sure if I should say the story or get staight to the point so if your intrested in the story here it is. If not scroll down/look down below the lines.
I was working for a neibor (can't spell that
) putting up a fence/building a house. The agreement was I was to get a computer. After the work was done, the man's father said "That computer is worth $2,000 and he only did a weeks worth of work!" So bacasally i got ripped off and didn't get anything. But i happened to have saved $200 so I bought a 100$ computer from the newspapper and a ~$70 wireless adpator. So I only have ~$35 left.
The problem is i have a SiS 6326 graphic card, It is uncapable of playing anything
. So my friend gave me his old Radeon 9200se Graphic card, but the problem is everytime i go to launch a game the moniter stops responding and i have to restart the computer.
Also it would shut off and come back on and give me error reports and all kinds of things. So I went back to the SiS. It had less problems.
Now I'm getting frustrated, I can't play any games besides good old D2 (diablo 2) and even that laggs. (my connection is 54 mbs verry good, wireless) I can't watch videos and i feel like the computer is worthless.
Summery: I have $35 dollars to fix my comuter to play games like Soldier Front, Counter Strike Sorce, and so on.
