  1. hello people

    i am having trouble with my graphics card and was wondering how to tweak it to run properly

    some games i have and try to run on my pc are lagging hard out and my computer is 5x the recommended specs on the game. i havent tweaked the card settings but im not sure whether its a computer problem or a graphics card problem.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    It`s probably the card itself that`s not capable of running the games properly.

    It`s not really a very good card for game playing at all.

    A graphics card upgrade will most likely solve your problem.

    However, since I don`t play games, I`m not in a position to advise on which card would be better for you.

    Other members will be able to recommend a better card.

    BTW. Please try not to post the same question more than once. Thanks.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    Your system looks like a very good one with the exception of that graphics card as Howard_hopkinso has pointed out. If you can spend $150 you'll be able to play just about any game that is out right now.
