What's dragging my computer down?
Posted 18 April 2012 - 03:28 PM
My computer was built for me by some guy about 6 months ago and its been bugging me for quite some time now that it seems to have low capabilities when I'm gaming. Here are the specs:
ASUS P5G41T-M (LX2-Series) Socket 775
Intel Pentium Dual core E5800 3.2GHz per core
Single module 4 GB DDR3 running @ 1333MHz (maximum capacity 8 GB)
Hard disk drive:
1TB (1000 GB).
PCI-express ATI Radeon HD 5450
Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit
Now, on The elder scrolls: Skyrim, I have to run the graphics on default low settings, as well as lowering the res to 1360*768 (from 1920*1080)
If you would like information of the settings I have to run any other games on just ask. Please, tell me what's dragging my computer down.

In addition to cryptodan's suggestion, you could probably stand to upgrade your video card. I have a quad-core oc'd to 3.2ghz w/ 8gb ram and a Radeon HD 5570 (card similar to yours) -- my settings in Skyrim have to be set relatively lower than what I would expect, and I know its not my CPU/Ram.
