    Next time create your own thread for assistance. Now, turn all the graphics and audio settings to low.

    Pretty much I just always try and be a little above recommended.. I usually notice some lag if I just meet them. I dont know why they even bother putting min on the box

    Clicking the "We reccomend" button on it doesn't seem to work
    I now know I need to upgrade my video card from this PoS chipset one, and the site is great for telling me that my games won't run with it. My only issue is, when I click the "We reccomend" button, it wont load a new page or anything to tell me what the site actually reccomends.

    Can anyone help me out here?
