All my top shelf games are lagging Tags: PC gaming Games Video Games Last response: June 10, 2012 2:44 PM in Video Games Share Amon311 June 10, 2012 4:41:24 AM Hey everyone! I've owned my gaming computer for almost a year, and I do tons of gaming on it. Recently, my more advanced games (Battlefield 3, Deus Ex Human Revolution) are not running like they used to. Also I played these games before the lagging came and they ran excellently, but I don't know what changed. I updated my graphics card, and scanned my computer. I'm still looking around for other ways of fixing this problem. I would appreciate some help. here are my specs: Processor: AMD Athlon™ II X2 260 Dual-Core CPU Cooling: Liquid CPU Cooling System [AMD] Memory: 4 GB [2 GB X2] DDR3-1333 Memory Module Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 - 2GB - Single Card Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit More about : top shelf games lagging jakepf1 June 10, 2012 1:45:03 PM Have you tried system restore ?
