Hi there. My pc can run Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2(one of my favourite games) but it doesn't run smoothly on High Settings and in some levels not even on low settings. Can someone suggest sth so as to play it smoothly? My pc specs are
Athlon Dual Core 4850e 2.5 GHz
4 GB RAM ( but I have Windows XP so it uses only 3.25GB)
ATI Radeon 5570 1 GB
I'm using Game Booster 3 and Advanced System Care 5 Turbo Boost so as to run it more smoothly. Can you help me? Thanks for reading!
it starts lagging awfully when I'm playing some levels of the game. Generally it runs well when I open it.
Secondly, I don't know what my PSU is. It says 450w, do you know where can i look to see what brand i have?
My pc is innovator bought from eshop
No name on PSU could be a bad one. I guess since you have XP than it is old? Make sure your computer does not have dust build up in side. Re seat your graphic card and ram. Do not run all of the add on stuff meaning Game boost Etc. When did this problem start? What was the min requirements to run the game? You need to check out your temps. I use MSI afterburnner here is a link so you can down load.
I have to agree with americanbrian. It isn't a heat problem and your system is clean on the inside. It is almost like they are working against or competing with each other. If your PSU is a good one You can run a lot better GPU's. Here is a link to show you how the GPU compair with each other.
Thank you guys for your advice. At the moment I can't upgrade anything but I can change my Windows XP 32 bit to Windows 7 64 bit so as to use all of my 4 gb ram. Should i do that to get a little better performance?
The 64 bit is the way to go in my opinion. It does allow you to take advantage of more RAM. Just remember when you up grade do the GPU first and see how everything runs then.
Next CPU. The Rule of up grades one peace at a time then test to make sure it is good.
Then move onto the next one. If you put everything in at one time and something is bad then where do you start to fix? And If it caused something else to go bad you get the picture? just a little tip. And Good luck
