Also in your dig rig. Why are you running 32 bit win7 instead of 64bit? You will be able to make better use of your rig with a 64 bit os.

64bit?
how can i make better use for it?
lol

im using 32bit because i wasnt sure i could handle it AND because i heard 64 sucks compared to 32 bit (:

and yes i can only probably use one monitor... thats why i want to use the hdtv

Who told you 64 bit sucked compared to 32 bit?

Also I can't guarantee that your hdtv will hold up as well as your acer so im not gonna tell you it will. But just based on brand alone your acer has a better chance. Number two a hdtv is designed for general use. Pc gaming is not general use by any means. Lol

You will not want to 'upgrade' to 64bit. I suggest a complete reinstall of Windows(this time 64bit) and all your software. Most software is still 32 bit so don't worry about trying to find 64bit versions of everything you use. Your biggest concern will be drivers because they can be different for your hardware but your rig is new so it they shouldn't be hard to find.
You probably heard 64bit sucked from someone because it did. XP 64bit never worked right and Vista was just....well? Vista? I myself could never upgrade because of all the work I did with my sound hardware and drivers didn't exist for 64bit for older hardware. Things have changed in the past 2 years big time.

Don't worry about it these days.

I think you are running into some other issue than what monitor to use, your rig with those specs should run that game just fine. you should do some stability testing and make sure your computer is setup properly- especially if you have OC'd.. you need to double check your ram settings, thats where I would start first.

Im not saying you have to. I just thought it weird you went wit 32 bit is all.

I dont think it will fix your problem indefinitely. Just thought it was weird is all.

But just like a previous poster said. With your current pc specs you shouldnt be seeing lag spikes at all. Not enough to be a problem anyway. You will just need to check and make sure everything is running as its supposed too. Latest drivers can help too. Check those before messing with ram timings or anything of that matter. Plus, is your computer having lag spikes with any other game?

not that i have noticed, no

i am sure all my drivers are up to date i try to check for updates everyday, and nothing ever pops up.

im not sure how to check ram settings
i dunno.. im just starting to think about dual booting into xp so it runs the way it should.
