hey guys, im new on here and i just bought a radeon graphics card off a mate for $70 aus.
ive got an intel celeron 1.7, 512mb of ram, 40gig hdd, 256mb radeon 9600pro. my mobo is a gigabyte ga-8SI-MLH rev 3.1
the problem that im having is that when im playing my games (need for speed underground 2, GTA san andreas) i find that the games lag a bit. i have to run the quality quite low (low to medium graphics on 800x600) to get em to run relatively smooth.
im thinking that the my processor is the bottleneck, as my step dad has the same video card, same RAM, but better mobo and cpu (AMD stuff)
ive got all the latest drivers, software etc.. overclocked it and its still crap. lol
im pretty poor as im saving for a new car.. so im on a bit of a budget.
ive been onto www.gigabyte.com.au
and they dont have my motherboard
what do you guys think i should do? if i can ill just get a new cpu, if not ill have to get a both..
if you want i can take pics of it, hope i gave enough info.
