I just installed windows 7 and tried playing assassin's creed(steam had a deal on it
anyway, I'm running a quad core Intel 9450(I think) with 4gb of RAM(good quality OCZ/corsair ones) I mixed 2 brands, but the numbers are the same according to the package. I'm on a HD 4870.
When I play this game on XP 32, I get no lag or w/e, but when I started this game in win 7, I got a pop up asking me if I wanted to turn off aero and go to basic windows 7 theme to save resources cause I was low. And there was some really minor performance issues...
Then I went on facebook to play typing maniac, and I think thats a bit choppy too when the words start calling faster....
Do I need to update my video card? I was under the impression that it updates everything for you through windows update or installs drivers
for you automatically... or does win 7 just use more resources? I thought it was supposed to make better use of things and run on less
