Hey I just had a quick question:

If you're a "minimal gamer", why would you need to upgrade anything? Your specs are fine. What makes you say it's bottlenecking? What's the make/model of your board?

Gigabyte MSLI-S4 rev1.0

Video seems to struggle here and there on GTA4 and it just seems my PC can't keep up even though it's specs arent that bad at all. Is my CPU a wimp? RAM too slow? Vid card slow? and another thing im not sure how many amps my vid card needs. And (lol) if it doesnt get enough amps does it run slower?
