Lag issues from graphics card

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Ok iv have been haveing prob with offline games with my comp and i was thinking it was my graphics card. I have a BFG nvidia geforce fx 5500 overclocked pci 256mb graphics card, iv tried cleaning my comp out and closeing out programs and i also put the graphics to low and or very low but lags just the same on high or very high. It also lags on the demos that came with the card. I dont know what to do im lost and would hate to sell it and buy a differnt one. Some info on my comp, Windows XP, 512mb of ram, Pentuim 4 processor 2.6 ghz, 80 gigs of hard drive space. My computer is a Compaq presario

That last part right there is prolly the entire problem. It's a brand computer, and even worse, it's a Compaq. I wouldn't buy comps, cause generally, they wouldn't let you do stuff like that, and even if you could, it'd run unstable. I'd suggest building a comp, but I dunno if you wanna go that far.
