you don't need to triple post. If you notice, mods on these forums, respond to threads from the bottom of the page up.

First of all, are you playing online? If so, what kind of internet connection do you have? To play smoothly online, I recommend broadband.

As for guildwars, it seems that your computer is still pretty old and may not be able to run it. Have you checked that it matches the system requirements? http://www.guildwars...aq/default.html

You cannot play good games on integrated or old gfx like the TNTs, generals is a new game and that is a very slow PC especially for when you got it if it was after generals came out. I got a family PC that i still use before generals came out and it wasnt a high end one either that was twice as fast as that. PCs arent like consoles i can go out today and buy a PC that wont run generals.

I very much doubt guildwars will run either its new and pretty high end.

the TNT wont run guildwars according to the spec sheet for it, you really need to read the back of the games to find the specs, you should have at least the reccomended in order to play the game properly.

Yeah that pc really isnt fast enough.


1000 megahertz AMD Athlon

256 mb ram

tnt2 video card

all slow...

look into an amd socket 939 board and cpu with a gig of ram minimum. I recommend 2 gb of ram. Get a fast video card, you will need a fast video card for cod2.


You cant play cod2 on older systmes. Read the specs of the game from now on so you will be able to play it.
If you dont know research it or come here.... :tazz:

Yeah a new PC is what you are going to need to play newer games, PCs arent consoles games dont work on all systems and dont run as well on every system. You can build a PC or you can order a custom built one(we can reccomend sites for you depending on your location) or you can buy a good PC from a builder but that usually not the best option for most.

depends on how good you're talking about. A decent custom built one for gaming will cost between $1000-$2000.

Although you can get a very good one if you build it yourself for less, over in the system building forum i have seen people picking up some very good deals on hardware in some places, and putting together excellent gaming rigs for not alot of money.
