I couldn't decide wether to put this in this forum, external software, or games.
Basically, I play fps games and I average about 30-40 fps all the time. I recently aquired a new monitor, (nothing special), and reformatted my computer (probably unnecessarily, but I figured it was about time) I have always had the game on super low graphics (lower than is optional in the game, by editing a .xml) And I still have the same fps lag. I have always had screen lag for most games I play on this computer.
(note: I used a program called fraps to see what my fps actually was.)
I was wondering if there was a better (and cheaper) way to raise my average fps? Or does it look like I'll need a graphics/video card? How much do they cost?
If it's helpful, here's some info for my comp;
i'm running a hp pavillion a1310n with 960mb of RAM -> 200gb hard drive
I have a daytech monitor.. probably 25 inches? i donno..
