So let me start off by saying I don't know anything about computers, I just want them to run and play I never paid much attention to the details.
But lately my graphics card is so bad it gets artifacts (so bad I can hardly recognize anything) on old games like Morrowind for God's sake. I looked around and downloaded this thing called GPU-Z to see the temperature but it doesnt tell me that, all it tells me is some BS about clock usage or something(Memory clock at about 400 MHz and core clock at about 500 MHz).
One more thing I noticed is, when I activated the render test, the GPU load went up to 100% and the memory usage went down to like 70MB. Surely this can't be good?
I don't know what's relevant so I'll post some random computer specs:
Processor: AMD Athlon II X4 630 Processor (4CPUs) ~2.86 GHz
Memory: 6144 MB RAM
DirectX Version: DirectX 11
Windows 7 64 bit
