not sure that will fix all the lag but if no one can remember when it was defragged... it probably needs it

It actually sounds more like internet lag. The 5770 should be able to pull medium, but high is pushing it depending on the resolution.

You could run at moderate settings. You would need a faster video card to run the game on high at decent resolutions. A 7870 maybe?

Depending on the price where you are, the HD 7850 is a large leap up in terms of gaming performance from the HD 7770.



That's actually a larger resolution than yours, but the HD 7850 performs ~20 FPS better than the HD 7770. The great overclocking ability of these cards also gives it a boost.

I currently have an HD 7850 2 GB myself that I picked up for $150 on Black Friday. :p

Wrong decition. reason the lag problem is not fully cure by gpu.athalon 2 x4 not utilise full gpu .so old card and new card same problem raise.Solution: change mobo and processor.

Yeah I'm pretty sure it's the CPU that's too old. The mobo is a good one, it's AM3+. He could install any Phenom II or a FX and it would be a mayor improvement.

The FX-6300 is a better buy than the 6200, and the price is just a little higher. Probably around 5 dollars.
