Not sure if I'm on the right subforum, since there were multiple that fit this topic. If not: I'm sorry!
Ok, so basically about 2-3 years ago I let my pc get built by someone I thought was very good at such things. I asked for a gaming pc around 2000€. I didn't know bleep about hardware back then, and I still know little about it. I do know now though that not every part is that optimal. Games like natural selection 2 crash very often, tf2 crashes from time to time and also games like portal might start crashing if I have alt tabbed.
My current specs are:
Processor: AMD Athlon II X4 640 3.00 GHz
RAM: 4,00 Gb (3,25 available)
Graphics: AMD Radeon HD 5700 Series
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate SP1
EDIT: ALL SPECS (speccy): http://speccy.piriform.com/results/YnRt7Mi4tetUtOAgHsWPxbU
So first , it's a 32-bit system, so I can't upgrade to 8Gb RAM, and this is where I THINK the problem is. Is there an easy/cheap way to upgrade to 64-bit?
Another source of the crashing could be that I'm overclocking. I'm using ASUS smartdoctor for that. I just closed it though, and pressed "no" when it asked to keep voltage and clock settings, then ran natural selection (which crashes the most). Again I couldn't get through the tutorial without crashing.
I hope someone can help me!
