X1950 Pro giving headaches :/ - Page 3

If you want to play the latest games I suggest you:
a) buy a new graphics card. If you want to stay with AMD, you can start looking at the cheapest one in the HD 6000 series, the HD 6450, and go all the way up to the HD 7750. I don't think you should spend more money than that on a graphics card unless you also upgrade your CPU;
b) overclock the E4300 or upgrade to a faster CPU. Even a Pentium E5700 would be a great choice. Of course, if you can find a second hand faster Core 2 Duo or Core 2 Quad for a nice price, the better, and it will open up the options for a faster graphics card than the one I suggested;
c) upgrade to 4 GB of RAM.
These three upgrades should make your computer last another year, or even more, depending on what you upgrade to.

Yo, he's a rook, don't go all gung ho as of yet. From the specs he provided, his psu will probably not be up to par. And that CPU will bottleneck.

Keep your eye on the marketplace and don't be afraid to throw the guys on there some offers. You shouldn't have any problem getting your hardware ready to run D3.

The drivers should help, but like the others I would really suggest an upgrade. It's the American way after all, when confronted with a problem the first and easiest solution is to throw copious amounts of money at it. biggrin.gif
