Laptop trying to run old game
Jul 12, 2011, 3:48 PM
Hello, I have a Aspire laptop with the following specs
AMD Phenom II X4 N970 2.2 ghz
AMD Radeon HD 6470M 2303 mb
4gb DDR3 Memory
I'm only trying to run Neverwinter Nights which is almost a decade old. The game seems to slow down a lot though when I engage in any form of combat. Is it my Gpu or what?
