Well, that's pretty much it. If your computer can't handle Maplestory, it won't handle any other games.


My computer uses 1.5A-load, .8A-idle, .65A-standby, .05A-turned off on 125V.

Yeah S3 was bought some time ago and you really can't find new drivers for their cards anymore. Is this a laptop for a desktop?
