[CPUs]Computer not able to run max settings on games

Sup guys,

I have noticed a recent problem that came to me recently and I need some advice with it. I am currently experiencing problems with my computer because it cannot run game on max settings anymore. I have no idea what can cause this problem and was wondering if the community knew. Not sure if its my graphics card or whatever but here are my specs.

OS:Windows 7 Ultimate 64-Bit
Processor: AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 5400+ (2 CPUs), ~2.8GHz
Memory: 4096MB Ram
Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GTX+

If you need some more information just ask what else I need to give and I will be glad to post more. Thanks to whoever can help me with this problem.

  1. Hi :)

    It depends on which game but thats a very OLD card nowdays...

    All the best Brett :)
  2. I am trying to play Diablo 3 CS:GO and so on.

    If I get a new graphics card it will fix this problem?

    Will it work if I buy an GeForce GTX 550 Ti and have my 9800 in there and connect them both with an SLI bridge?



    Hi :)

    No, the cards are too different...

    All the best Brett :)

  6. Games increase graphically, and thus in demand on system resources, every year. So eventually the best graphic card in the world will struggle to play games at max settings at some point - whether it is a year from now or five, it will happen eventually.

    That said, you can only SLI two video cards together that 1.) Support it, and 2.) Are the exact same make, model, and speed.
  7. A more powerful CPU wouldn't hurt too, all in all seems like a pretty low end system to me
  8. by max settings do you mean 1080p at max AA and all settings on high?
    Because there is no way those specs are good enough for that
