Hey everyone, I made a post about this, but it got moved, so I'm remaking it.
Anyways, I just recently bought a new video card. I now can run Far Cry 3 on Low with no lag whatsoever.
I would really, really, really enjoy to be able to play this game on High settings, and I have no clue to where to begin...
To start off, here are my current specs on my computer
I have Windows 8 Pro (64bit)
Motherboard is an Intel DG33BU
4GB of DDR2 RAM
Quad-Core Intel Xeon Processor at @2.3ghz
My video card is a Diamond Radeon HD 6450 1GB GDDR3.
Yeah, I know, pretty weak. Bare with me. I have multiple questions.
First off, what are the KEY factors that come into play when running video games. eg, video card, processor, monitor?
Second, what can I buy to improve game performance, or boost it to run it on higher?
Third, people say get a new processor, can someone please tell me what gaming processor to get that's not TOO expensive that will fit in my socket? (I don't know what kind of socket I have, or how to find out)
Lastly, what can I buy that WILL improve my game performance.
Please, no smart-ass remarks or insults for my noobie-esk status.
Thanks guys, I've said it before, If someone can truly help me, I WILL PAY.... no one seems to be interested in that.
