Hello new here.
Looking at the minimum requirements. I seem to have the minimums (slightly above for processor) for everything but my video card. Obviously this isn't amazing.
I am honestly not looking for a spectacular computer to run this game for now. Something that can run on Low to Medium settings with minimal lag. Even Low settings with no lag works.
I am not really computer savvy honestly. So I am really looking for specifics to help me out.
One thing I know I need to upgrade is my video card. If I were to do that, with everything else listed below, would I be able to run the game on Low? I know I will need a new power supply to run the new card. So help is also needed there.
Also Note. With this pc, I can run WoW (ya lol) on Medium/High settings in raids. I also ran Aion in Low-Medium settings with hardly any lag. The only time I lagged was during fortress raids, and I would crash. But from what I hear now, a lot of people crashed from that anyways.
I downloaded the Benchmark program. Got the directx 9 error. Updated that. Then I went to run it and it crashed. So I updated my graphics card drivers and now it says "Data Corrupted, unable to run program". When before updating the graphics card drivers, it would at least open, and then close.
Here's my pc specs. Let me know if I missed anything
AMD Athlon 64 x2 dual core processor 5200+, 2.6 GHz
1918 MB (2 gigs?)
NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE nForce 430
So summarize. What I am looking for is.
1. What is the cheapest card I can get to run Low settings fine. Maybe 1 step up from cheapest settings.
2. Are my other things OK for Low-Medium if I update my card?
3. What power supply will I need (again cheapest) to run this.
Also, somewhat related.
1. I updated my NVIDIA drivers (I did the series 6 download for the 6150SE card, that's correct?). After rebooting, my screens resolution was really small. Went and changed it to the correct resolution. However, my icons on my desktop among other things are much smaller than before. And now web pages no longer fill the full screen. Is there a way to fix this?
