  1. My computer likes to lag a lot on games like planetside 2 and league of legends and sometimes amnesia. What do you recommend for a graphics card? I'll post specs if asked

    What Settings do you have these games to? League of legends can be run without a graphics card. Also post your specs. (and by no graphics card I mean intergrated)

    If you give us a run down of your specs, the better people will be able to assist you. However, I believe PlanetSide2 is pretty taxing on your CPU. Well, atleast more so then it would your graphics card. So, your CPU may be the reason for the hangs in PS2.

    Try to update video card driver from: http://www.nvidia.com/Download/Scan.aspx?lang=en-us
    since this is an online game, try not do any background download.

    Do I need to delete the old Driver files or will it automatically overwrite the last driver?

    From my experience from using nvidia 9800gt and g210, all I need to do is download and install the latest nvidia driver pack.

    under windows 7/8, nvidia drivers are located under this folder: C:\NVIDIA\DisplayDriver
    under this, old driver packs which I installed 306.97, 310.70. (safe to delete after successful driver update)
    latest driver pack I installed 310.90.
