    The intel onboard graphics, in fact the Intel(R) 82845G/GL/GE/PE/GV Graphics controller is on my work PC computer, is not that good of a gamming card.

    The only think you can do is make sure you have the most current drivers which may not help that much at all.

    I hate to mention this, but you may have to upgrade your video card in order to get smooth graphics. I would also increase your ram to 512 mb ram.

    The only other option is to turn down the video / audio options. If the game supports Creative's EAX, and it's turned on, I would turn it off to get a boost.

    well im thinking of doing what u sed and that is to increase my RAM memory to 512 MB.
    The problem is i dont know where tostart, i've found what i think will work on my computer but im not sure, its:
    PNY
    512MB PC2700 SODIMM
    MEMORY

    I found that at www.pcworld.co.uk

    will this work on my computer? my system details are above^^

    if that is not what im looking for, do you reccomend any 512MB hardware?

    You can also go to www.pcpitstop.com, run a scan and they'll tell alot more about your computer, but you should get a new Graphics card, cause some games don't work with the integrated Video Cards, And it can only help your performance.

    if you are only going to play mohaa just go for something lo-priced like a Nvidia geforce fx 5200 (i use one and get a average fps of 80 on full settings)

    but if you are going to buy some newer games i would recommend something like the Nvidia 6600GT as i think its the best bang for buck in the mainstream market.

    unless you like ATI

    That looks like a decent card, but make sure your monitor has a DVI connection. If you only have a VGA monitor it won't do you any good from the looks of it. Although, I think they make converters..
