Would cpu upgrade makes difference for....
Feb 3, 2010, 4:46 AM
hi, my nephews' PC is an HP6155D
Core 2 Duo E4400 (C) DC 2.0 GHz
800 MHz front side bus
ASUS ENGTX260 TOP 896MB
I just recently upgraded the graphic cards
running windows XP, all updated, latest dx , HDD on IDE mode despite having SATA HDD
they say playability is ok, but some games, when I move the character up to look at the sun, it lags, even at low settings. (1440*900).
what can I do to improve gaming experience with minimum spending ?
thanks in advanced

Also make sure that power supply can produce enough power to run the card correctly.
