Can't run games smoothly on computer

I go to the canirunit website and I blow past the recommended specs but Diablo 3 is still running extremely laggy.

  1. CPU speed maybe?
  2. Recommend a GTX 260 or HD 4870 and you have a GT 610. That's your problem.
  3. Okay cool thanks. So if I upgrade to a better graphics card is everything else that I have good?
  4. The CPU could be a problem as well if the game cannot use all of the core. But i think you are ok since it's Diablo 3.

    Try upgrading the GPU first, if it runs ok, then leave it at that. If not, post your mobo here and see what CPU you can get.
  5. or reduce your settings
