I've recently upgraded my video card, memory, and PSU on my a1730n HP Pavilion Desktop and I have encountered a system requirements test for a game that my system should be able to play? I have an AMD 64 x2 Dual core 2.6ghz/processor GPU, 4 Gigabytes of DDR2 memory, a 450W PSU, and a 1G DDR2 PNY GeForce 9500GT Video Card. I installed about a week ago and I haven't noticed any change at all in the video quality and game play, my resolution is a lot better though? These are a few screen shots of what I got and what i'm dealing with... can anyone help me please? I have installed all current drivers, checked and double checked hardware installation, and it shows up in my device manager the video card is operating with no problems?
Hey, well first thing to do would be if you have the old card you should put it back it and run some benckmarks after that put the new one in and run them again (lol you can run them now with the new one and then with the old one!) after that post them and ill get back to you that will give me a much better idea of whats going on you should download 3DMark06 get the free version!
Need to know what games, were you just using your on board video and what resolution.
As for the system requirements, youre fine, they must have a glitch in their system, as the 9500 is DX10, which will run any DX9 model
