Hi all my first post in a long time.

Well I was thinking about this for a while and if you are having trouble with a game when you come for help please post something along the lines of

Name of Game:
Recommended System Requirements:
Operating System:

Though this is a computer forum, some people do not know where to get DxDiag. I do not know how to on Vista but I on the earlier systems it is the following:

1. Open "Run". This can be found under the start menu.

2. In the typing box type the following: DxDiag.

3. I would advise letting it search online for whatever it wants to search for.

4. Please post your display settings Example

Name: ASUS A9250 Series
Manufacturer: ATI Technologies INC.
Chip Type: ATI Display Adapter AGP (0x5960)
DAC Type: Internal DAC (400 MHz)
Approx. Total Memory: 128.0
Current Display Mode: 1024 x 768
Monitor: Plug and Play Monitor

Your results will be different but this is a rough example

5. After getting the Display settings of your computer, Post the Amount of Ram it has and its Processor size and type.

6. Post here and await help.

I figured this would help just a little bit so we do not have to keep asking "well what is ___ on your computer?" this will allow you gain help faster.
