" u need to learn what kind of upgrades u need. it sounds like u are buying things that are not as great as u think they are. i still have pentium 4, it is running great. it plays crysis on high. u should look at crysis warhead. the game is a lot more optimized then crysis. i played the trial for crysis wars and the graphics looked a lot better and ran a lot smoother then crysis. "
Not it doesn't, P4 will not run Crysis on high and you know it.
And OP if your computer can't run half life epis 2 without a decent framerate the problem is that you bought a crappy PC , probably a prebuilt that cost more then a decent gaming PC.
So then you got ripped off, came on here start raving about having to pay 300 bucks for an upgrade when a graphics card that will max everything, even crysis only cost 130 or so. And if you have to upgrade the processor, chances are your PC is older then the last latest consoles SO then you have no room to complain anyways.
