  1. What are your specs?
  2. MONITOR: new dell IN1920 (19" VIEWABLE) TFT/LCD MONITOR

    MEMORY: 2GB (2048MB)
    HARD DRIVE: FAST 120GB 7200RP SEAGATE DRIVE
    OPTICAL DRIVE : DVD DRIVE GRAPHICS CARD: NVIDIA QUADRO FX1400 3D/GAMING/PROFESSIONAL PCI+E GRAPHICS
  3. Your PC is the problem. Is the specs listed the specs of your "new" PC.
  4. its not a brand new pc no, i purchased it second hand what would i need to buy to deal with these problems and how much am i looking to spend considering the pc runs medieval and roma perfectly fine?
  5. How much did you buy this PC for? If more than $250 your were ripped.

    You'd probably be looking at a new parts for the core basically except the HDD, probably $300 or so is a rough estimate, that's if you choose to do it yourself. $250 maybe is a good price mark.
  6. i purchased the pc for 150$ what comonents would i be looking to get for it ive been looking at the GeForce 280 gtx graphics card?
    also if a computer is able to run 'crysis' succesfully after being refurblished is a 100$ a good deal
  7. Ehh.... The 280 is good, but it runs hot and eats up a lot of power. I'd suggest going for these parts assuming you have $300 budget.
