hi im new to the fourm, im running

windows 7 ultimate 32bit
AMD opteron processer 146 (this got 3.9 system rating)
149.0 GB Harddrive (this got 5.7 system rating)
Asus EN9500GT 1GB Graphics card (this got 6.2 system rating)
1.00 GB Ram (this got 4.5 system rating)
asus a8v-vm se motherboard

and i cant seem to get the frame rate right on games, example colin mcrae 05 the graphics are crap!! and the fsp jumps like a frog when you go round corners, i have the drivers set up for the graphics card and so on, aero is enabled so i cant get my head round it! is there any programs out there that can clean up the fps to be faster or auto tune my pc for the grpahics side of things or does my pc need upgrading anywhere?

many thanks Damon

More then likely a RAM upgrade, even though 7 can run on less amounts, the GFX card is fairly good, it's just the RAM letting you down.

So if this a gaming machine of yours, you'll need to install more RAM, maybe 3-4GB and you should be fine.

Just one thing, is this a new PC, or did you have Vista/XP running on it first? And did the games perform OK on the previous install?

Hope this helps, and Merry Christmas to you sir.
