i struggle run games such as Assasins Creed, Kane and Lynch and Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter, possibly due to my low subscores on Graphics and Gaming Graphics on my WEI. So i would like to push both of these subscores as high as possible (4.5 is the MAX for my PC i believe)
I have learnt off the Microsft help website that any graphics card that doesn't support Microsoft DirectX 9 automatically receives a score of 1.0, regardless of other factors. Also that a video card using a driver that doesn't support Windows Vista Display Driver Model (WDDM) can't receive a score higher than 1.9. (DirectX 9 and WDDM are requirements for Windows Aero)
A new graphics card will help i'm guessing.. not sure what to buy..
My price range is anything between $40 to $80, $81 to $120 or $121 to $160 or even possibly up to $200 depending on how much my subscores for GRAPHICS and GAMING GRAPHICS will improve.
so I would please like any suggestions for a LOW END, a MID RANGE and a TOP END graphics cards to improve my BASE SUB SCORE OF 3.0!!!
MANY MANY THNKS IN ADVANCE!
I HOPE ALL THIS INFO HELPS YOU TO HELP ME!
my PC is:
processor- Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 2.4GHz
graphics card- GEFORCE 7050 256MB
with Win Vista Home Premium
my WEI score at the moment is:
Memory (RAM) 4.5
Gaming Graphics 3.0
Primary Hard disk 5.9
