Old games run slow on my computer


Go to solution Solved by Austin,

Recommended Posts

I just purchased a brand new $1100 desktop gaming computer. My new games, JC2, Mass Effect 2, CIV.. All run fine.

The problem is when I load old games, like Diablo II, Warcraft II, and a few others. The games seem choppy and run horribly, yet my system is definitely powerful enough to run these at max settings.

Any ideas?

      Yo all, here's the deal - I've got a ATi Radeon HD 4850, quite good, but it's kind of giving me a headache when it comes to running newer games - 15-20 frames on GTA IV with high settings doesn't sound good to me...
      So the deal is - do I crossfire my current 4850 with another one or do I just buy a new GPU, like a 6950 or a 6970? It's a tough decision to make - just to note - it's not really about the money here, it's just that I'm not 100% sure if the 6000 series is right for me.
      P.S.: Yes, I absolutely MUST get 2GB of GPU memory if I will be going for a new one.(this question is also in the forum: http://www.groovypost.com/forum/hardware-software/crossfire-vs-new-card-t97008.html)

      Some time ago I started playing CityVille. I liked it. But now im getting hammered with email. Is there a way to just quit cityville, maybe delete my city and stop receiving all the mail??

      So I have a pretty standard laptop and I was wondering if it would be possible to remotely play games installed on my desktop or a virtual machine using the laptop. Say if I was in the other room and I wanted to play games, could I use the laptops remote desktop connection do this?
      And is it possible to install games on a virtual machine and then play them remotely? (Assuming the games were installed on a server or workstation) Wouldn't the video card in the virtual machine not matter as much and I could just make it use the video card in the laptop?
