Having problems with your HP Pavilion a1610n PC Desktop ?

"Call of Duty" runs in slow motion on my PC.

\015 The game requirements are OS-Vista/XP, processor-AMD64 3200+/Pen 4 3.0 GHz or better, free memory 1 GB RAM Vista and video card 256 MB NVIDIA Geforce 6600GT/ATI Radeon 1600XT or better. I have a Geforce\015\0126150.\015\012Should I upgrade the video card or try to find another PC with a better card?\015\012Thing is how do I know what is a better card?\015

Answers :

Yes Thomas, You can install a video card such as nvidia 9000 series.... That will definiely increase the performance of the computer.
Hi thomas,
\015\012Upgrading video cards will definitely increase in performance. You asked whether you should upgrade your entire PC or just the card and that really depends on the hardware you are running. If all of your hardware just barely meets the requirements than upgrading the videocard WILL give you a noticeable improvement but obviously it will not be as good as getting a better CPU and more RAM as well as a new card.
\015\012A good measure of a cards performance is based on the series of cards it is from. Your Geforce is from the 6000 series of Nvidia cards, they have 7000, 8000, and even 9000 series cards atm.
\015\012I would recommend something like an XFX Geforce 9800 GTX+ series card with 512MB of onboard memory, or any other competing card in the 200$ price range. This will definitely give you an increase in performance, and is a very popular card.
\015\012Hope this helps and please take a second to rate!
