I have a preety good graphics card but when i try to play somegames such as oblivion or F.E.A.R. it gets all laggy and stuff. i have tried to put down the graphics on the game but it still doesnt run very smoothly. I only have a PCI port and this is probably why this is happening but i was wondering if there is another way around this problem instead of buying a whole new system. thankx again



Pentium® 4 CPU 2.80GHz
2.79GHz, 512 MB or RAM


Card: GeForce 6200

6200 he could very well mean PCI. Im afraid if all you have is a PCI slot then you really are stuck the card isnt meant for games like FEAR and oblivion and will really struggle with them(much better cards struggle with those games).

Im afraid short of an almost completely new system you dont have any real options.

He is completely right. Your running a card completely under powered for games like that. Consider upgrading or just turning down the settings. Sadly most new games require high end cards that are $300-400 easy in order to run them on high graphics completely smooth with no problems.
