Hey all I bought a rig about 3 months ago as a cheap impulse buy and iv been living well enough with it so far. But iv recently decided to chop through some old games such as borderlands, deadspace and the like but the Nvidia GT220 thats in machine seems to really struggle. Im getting very jerky game play in borderlands with all settings on the lowest with screen res at highest (i play all my games full resolution since im running a full HD 24" wide screen monitor). Dead space 1 isn't so bad but its still jerky, possibly adding to the fun of the game but not appealing all the time. Details (most of this is just what CPU-ID could find, if you need any more info ill try get it) CPU - Intel i7 950 CPU speed - 1999.0 MHz Motherboard - MSI X58M (MS-7593) RAM - 12gigs DDR3 GPU - Nvidia GT220 2gig GPU slots - Two 16X PCI-E, one 4xPCI-E and one old PCI Power supply - ok its got two +12V rails, one is 18A the other 19A i did have a pic but seems i need to post more on the forums to link one. Budget for possible upgrades $300-600 Aus, happy to buy off the net If there's a tweaking solution that would be great but if the better option is to get a new card then im happy to buy a new card that will handle the games as long as they can fit in the case and on the motherboard. it is a small case and unusually small looking motherboard. Iv also still got my old 9800GT which i had two of in SLI on my old computer, dunno if its worth swapping the GT220 for the 9800 given that my old set up played both games and others no problem. As and added note i run dual monitors, however iv turned the duel monitor setting off to see if it improved the game play. it didn't.
