Recently, I bought a new computer online (made sure it was good and all before I bought it) in order to get away from the most messed up computer I've had since 2007 (dad and Uncle Tony made it and I've ruined the thing almost).
Here's the Amazon.com page for it if you need additional information: http://www.amazon.com/Acer-AX1301-U1302-De...ref=pd_sim_pc_4
Now, the issue I want to bring up is the fact I want to play Grand Theft Auto IV. I've heard it needs insane graphic card recommendations for it because it's really high-definition/high resolution. And I'll admit, it runs kinda slow although I've turned down ALL the graphics for that game. It shows you in the menu how much (MB?) is being used while playing and mine usually stays green when I have it waaayyy down. I'm concerned if this is either because of my DDR2 RAM or NVIDIA GeForce 9200 graphics card. The previous computer I used wasn't a Dual-Core and had a ATI Radeon HD 4850 graphics card and things did work well enough with it, while only having DDR2 RAM. Even if I try to turn up my graphics in the game, when I go outside the road and parts of the background have these black lines that move when I move and trees look very frail and low-resolution. Even while walking, it runs very slow.
Kinda angry now that my bf has a PS3 and his works fine. lol I've realized I'll need more things in order to make this game work up to par.
And one other small question: I have a 64-bit computer and my Acer LCD monitor only gets it in 32-bit. Should I consider getting a different monitor in order to receive the 64-bit colors?
I would really appreciate some help on this issue and if there are any questions, I'll happily answer back. Thanks guys.
