  1. I bought this dell a while ago, maybe a year. Here's the computer spec's.

    Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2,40GHz 2.40GHZ
    3.00GB of RAM
    32-bit Operating System Windows Vista
    NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GTX/9800 GTX+

    The only problem is that when I run certain game's like Age of Conan or GTA 5 I can't even run GTA 5 on lowest, I can't run olbivian elder scrolls on lowest.
    The best I can run is CSS and Age of Conan on low , and running Age of conan on low gives me 12 frames per second at best. I'm sure you can see why this is fusterating , These problems shouldn't be evident with my computer , yet they are.

    I think it may have to do with my power supply, I had to replace it because the old one couldn't handle my graphics card :D and I'm not sure how well the new one is holding out , I don't know the Wattz of it , its a gold box we put in the back that has a fan, thats all we replaced, expect the Graphics gard didnt fit so the tech guy rewired the entire computer and made some changes to the wires so it fit.

    If anyone knows why playing games I should be able to run on high are having troubles running on low , please, help me , or put me out of my misery. D:
