Ahoy! Just bought a game (Civ V) and it won't play. My crummy Dell has intel g33/g31 express chipset family for graphics and I suspect the game requires something more appropriate. I'm PC hardware literate, but just barely. I'm student and a father, so $ is important. What should I upgrade to and can I install it myself (I have upgraded memory in the past-but that is the depth of my ability)?
Inspiron, not low profile. By ratings from the sticker on power supply, do you mean 10A and 125V?
I haven't a clue what these items cost. I'm not a gamer, except for Civ (hopeless addict), and don't get off on amazing visual experience, so I believe I'll be shopping toward goodwill pricing. Is under $100 reasonable?
