My computer is around 3 years old with afew upgrades such as GPU; Ram, Etc.
OS; XP Home 32bit.
Cpu: Intel E6300+ Core 2 Duo, 1.86ghz oced to 2.2.
GPU: Nvidia Geforce 896mb GTX260 (Core 216).
RAM. 3072 MB (Two 1 gig sticks dual channeling and one sitting in another by its self) I've tried taking the single one out. it wasn't the cause.
Mobo: Asus P5L-VM 1394 (Green)
Hard drive: Some 78gig sata drive with an 8mb cache. (could this be a problem?)
PSU: 500w CLIO (kindof low for my setup, but everything runs stable as far as power issues)
Other specifics: Using a 21' Acer LCD running at 1400 x 1050.
Running DX9 with Winxp.
Total pagefile is 4961; typically goes up to around 3000 max used when running a game.
Obviously my bigger problems come from running newer engines such as U3, Warhammer(very bad with WH) Mass effect.
I'm stumped. I know people with worse computers than my setup and run these engines flawlessly.
