If my description didn't make sense then here's a bit more in depth, and a story that explains it....
Well I went to the the store to buy the sequel to a PC game a friend of mine had gotten me addicted to (Half-Life, Buying Half-Life 2), before I went to buy it I made sure that my PC had the specs to handle it...I looked at the sticker on the outside of the PC, it stated I had a 3000 + Mhz Processor, and 512 MB RAM....and my video card (VIA/S3G UNIChrome IGP) was able to handle it. It all checked out, everything seemed to be going alittle to smooth..Got home, loaded the thing up and it loaded fine..Turned it on, Turned on fine...Got to the main menu, the graphics in the back ran fine..Loaded it and the first cutscene the graphics and sound got all choppy...so I go back to main menu turn all settings down and still same thing...
so I update graphics card, etc etc...Later I run this scan that the sight has for the game and it turns out that the sticker on the outside of my comp was "lying?"...according to the thing I have 448 MB RAM and 2158 Mhz Processor (game needs 512 RAM and 2400 Mhz Processor).....
Double Checked it with Run>DXDIAG
and it confirmed that I had 448 RAM but said I have a 3000+ Processor (2.2 Ghz [outside said 2.16 Ghz])
so my question to the geekstogo staff is what happened to the rest of my RAM and Mhz of processing?
(something I noticed 2.16 Ghz translates to about 2160 Mhz if I'm correct, 2.2 Ghz goes to about 2200 mhz)
