Windows 7: Game lagging and slow performance of pc.Suggestion about a gaming rig?

You'll need a new graphics card for those games... Such as this GTX 460 Newegg.com - PNY XLR8 VCGGTX4601XPB-OC GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) OC 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card, its 130 bucks after the mail in rebate.

Let me pick a cheaper motherboard for you. Do you want USB 3.0? What HDD do you have?

What if I doesn't get a new graphic card? Am I still able to play?

Well, I can afford the motherboard. If you want to suggest or pic a better and cheaper motherboard for me, go ahead. Yes, I want USB 3.0

I have the Western Digital HDD, one is 1TB and one is 1 TB.

My main HDD which I installed Windows 7 is a seagate 160GB HDD.

Don't spend so much cash on the motherboard. Can you tell me the exact Hard drive you have? Because you can get a motherboard that features SATA 6.0 Gbps, if your hard drive supports it. You'll probably want new RAM.

Can you explain why don't spend too much on it? And the motherboard I told you doesn't support SATA 6.0Gbps?(What is this for actually?)
You mean giving the model of the drive?
WDC WD10EADS-00L5B1 ATA Device
WDC WD15EARS-00Z5B1 ATA Device
Is it what you want?

yeah I need RAM for the new motherboard.
You did give me one link to look at the RAM last time.

When you do get the board, also consider getting RAM. Some of the newer boards will want to use DDR3 triple channel. If your older system used DDR2, you may have to replace the RAM. Also check the speed if you are using DDR3, as again, the MB for certain processors will need to be at a certain speed or else you suffer memory flaws which will produce an unstable system. These are key things you need to examine when you go forward.
Thanks for all the info here mate. And I don't know how to look at the difference between PCIe slots and what PCIe support, such as PCIe 2.0 at x16 or x8 like what you mention.
Well, go with what Slash might recommend. Technically, you can go to motherboard information and look at the specs, most vendors and sellers will put technical specifications of the motherboard and just keyword search for PCI Express. While some manufacturers will state they have better response times, at this point your focus is budget than certain levels of performance. And to be honest, some of them are very nanscent to the most common user.

Oh, alright.
So I will just go with SlashIt idea. Maybe he could find a better motherboard for me I think....

I want to go to sleep now, is 11:35 in the night here. I will reply soon....

I can't find that model anywhere on the net. Spend more cash on something else, other than the motherboard. I'm picking a more suitable motherboard for you... I guess you want SATA 6.0 Gbps even though your HDD's probably don't support it... Is this motherboard good for you?

I think this is the one?
ASUSTeK Computer Inc. - Motherboards- ASUS P8H67-M LE

Can you explain about the SATA 6.0Gbps?
Yeah I think is okay... Powerful and cheap?
Actually, motherboard the support GPU or CPU boots to higher Ghz is better or?

No lol, I mean the one I picked for you is perfect for your needs and saves cash.

SATA 6.0 Gbps... Enables slightly faster speeds for the hard drive... If your hard drive supports it. Your drive probably supports SATA 3.0 Gbps, but if you want to change it in the future...

I don't understand what you are trying to say "Actually, motherboard the support GPU or CPU boots to higher Ghz is better or?"

SATA 6.0 Gbps is basically the data rate speed the board can go up to with regards to Hard drives. So if you have a hard drive that can support SATA 6.0 Gbps, the transfer rates will peak at 600 MBytes/s. Current SATA is 3.0 Gbps, so peaking close to 300 MBytes/s for data transfer. Faster == better for load times. However, the limitation at this point will be the drives and how fast it will be able to access data and if it conforms with SATA 3.0 Gbps or 6.0 Gbps.

The board can use slower drives, so it isn't necessary to GET new HDs unless you want to get more data throughput.

As for your last question, from the base tech specs it shows, it has a x16 PCI Express slot for 1 GPU running there. The supported CPUs are listed on a tab, the highest, from the looks of it, is the Core i7-2600 (3.4G,L3:8M,iGPU,4C,HT,rev.D2), which should be a quad core, hyper threading processor with 8 Megs of L3 cache, so you have 1 CPU processor type you can go up to from the i5-2500 previously mentioned. (It has 2 other variations listed of the i7-2600, the K and U types.)

The only thing you should concern yourself would be the memory. It will max out at 16 Gigs of DDR2 RAM, which isn't too bad and you don't need to necessarily go that high. I would lean more to 8 Gigs of DDR2, as 4 Gigs on a 64 bit is meh, better to use 8 for some breathing room. Or stay with 4 if you want to run Win7x86(32 bit).

The only real benefit of x64 for you is making use of more memory if you happen to be a heavy multi-tasker.
