  1. Hello, New to the forums

    I have built my computer with an XFX mobo with intergrated graphics nforce 630i with geforce 7150
    i try running a game, Steam Counter-strike Source, and also world of warcraft
    both games will freeze. and at different times, lately it has been after a very few mins.
    i have updated every driver i have, and still the same.

    i have speedfan 4.37 running and i get
    fan1: 2464 RPM

    GPU: 0c
    temp1: 24c
    temp2: 42c
    temp3: 39c
    HD0: 37c
    core0: 38c
    core1: 38c
    core2:36c
    core3:37c
    vcore1: 1.38V
    Vcore2: 1.15V
    +3.3V: 3.04V
    +5V: 5.11V
    +12V: 12.10V
    -12V: -16.64V
    -5V: -8.48V
    +5V: 5.05V
    Vbat: 3.23V
    i am not sure what all that means so any help as to why i can not play a game on a better computer then a very old one would be very helpful

    If you are a serious gamer, get away from using on-board graphics, and purchase a quality Video card compatible with your motherboard

    How much memory are you running? What CPU is installed? How big is your hard drive and how much free space is left? What operating system are you running and is it fully updated using Windows Update? What antivirus and antimalware programs are you running?
