Greetings forum, this is my first post on this site. I was wondering if I might get some information on how to fix my computer. I was unsure where best to put this question, but I decided to just stick it here under the XP boards.
My computer is a dell E520 2.8ghz pemtium-D, 4gigs ram, 512 video card. When I try to play games on it, games that I have a the specs beat on by a mile, it still runs very slow and choppy. I have to turn down my settings on everything to its absolute minimum setting and it still is almost unplayable. I did do a reinstall back in February of XP, but I downloaded all of the drivers for the chipsets and things off of the dell site using my service tag linked to my computer. My video card is a GeForce 7300 LE.
Having said all of that, I was wondering if I can increase the speed of my computer any without going and buying a whole new one. If i get a different video card would that help? I already have 4gigs of ram, but do I need more? My 3d mark score on this computer is less than 3,000, and my laptop can get that score at half the resources.
Thanks for your help and time,
