Hi guys . I am almost 100 percent positive there was a better section for this post however i didn't wanna get flamed for actually posting in the WRONG section, so i just posted it here. Maybe yall can help me out. I recently sold a parts car i had and got a sum of money along with what i was told was a gaming rig. Now i've looked up the parts which i detailed below, and they are far from top spec. lol thing is, i'm still new to the hardware side and am not sure what these parts SHOULD actually be capable of. the guy keeps saying that the machine should be pretty fast and that i must be missing some drivers. I tried installing ATI catalyst to fix some graphics problems i've been having where my computer simply will not load certain games like black prophecy online. That didn't seem to do much. So maybe one of you who is more techy than me can help me out. Here is what the software i use says is in my pc lol. Motherboard: TA790XE Video Card : ATI Radeon X1950 (driver date 2-10-11) 512MB RAM:2g DDR2 CPU: AMD Athelon II X2 240 2800.5MHz Dual-Core 14x Also, I should mention that when i got it i installed a custom version of windows 7 os. I use the eternity edition installer. So even though my computer says i have all my drivers it is entirely possible i missed something. As for a little more detail about what the problem actually is.....it's just very slow. Usually it's slowest when actually opening up an application. Once it's running everything seems fine...usually. My guess and yall can tell me if i'm wrong. is that I need more RAM.
