After upgrade still slow. Help Plz!! : (

November 22, 2010 at 10:16:21
Specs: Windows 7 ultimate 32 bit, 2.8 Ghz/ 2Gb ram
I have a Processor : AMD Athlon 64 X2 5400+ @ 2.8Ghz and 2Gb Ram, 160 Gb hard disk, and an integrated video card : NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE nForce 430 (Microsoft Corporation - WDDM)


I have a power supply of 350 Watt (not real power) is it too weak for my hardwares as the AMD Athlon 64 X2 5400+ has the same speed of the AMD sempron i had before?

type msconfig in the run box, go to startup and uncheck anything that you dont need at start up.
also its not a great system for gaming so try switching off the win 7 eye candy, like aero, try running games in a window and not full screen, also check running process for anything taking extra memory and cpu..

oh yeah the 5400 is a 2.8ghz chip , what was your semprom rated at?

so it will not run faster it will allow you to do more things at once as both chips work away on different sets of data.

Just wondering. Would you bother to help anyone for free who said you didn't know anything and was then "demanding"?

Your question was badly written and difficult for anyone to properly understand.

I do not know the card personally, but from the general stats and reviews the card will be much better than your onboard video, but it is definitely not a serious gaming card. If you are serious about gaming and using the max settings, then upgrade as far as you can afford. If you want an in depth recommendation on gaming video card, post this as a separate question under 'Gaming'. Include all of your system specs, your possible choices, your games, and your price range (preferred and max).

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
If all else fails, read instructions.

i would suggest the nvidia 450 (or higher) with 1Gb memory, you can get them at good prices and they will run most games, @1440x900. there are lots of things to consider, resolution, frame speed, heat, noise etc, you might get some better info from the tomb raider forums..http://forums.eidosgames.com/forumdisplay.php?f=6
