hi,

I have had my computer for around 7 years (windows xp)and i am looking to get a new one. I have found that my computer has become slower and dated. I found this out when i had to update the word packages and stuff like that.

I mostly use my pc for gaming and recently brought new game which don't work to good. Its just it takes time to load or install, if I do login the graphics are poor and slow , lines of works missing or in a weird scribe. moves in the game stall the games.

game that don't do to good if this info helps. sid meiers civilization v football manager 20011 (slow at watching game in 3d slow and poor all over) empire total war

thanks for you help if you can help me. any advice is welcome and needed, if you need any other info please fill free to post here. ;)

thanks Mr Hurst

If you need this information may I suggest you include your budget - ie: minimum/maximum spend. There are are "expert" gamers on here more than willing to give advice - unfortunately I am not one of them.

Always useful to know what sort of budget you have, otherwise how are we going to be able to make an informed suggestion.
