  1. Sorry for the late reply, but thanks for the advice everyone. I'll hold off on TOR until I can get a proper setup. Happy New Years!
  2. Hey, it's me asking about computer specs again I haven't gotten TOR yet, but plan to after I get my setup straightened out. My specs are: AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+ 2.60 GHz 4GB RAM Windows 7 32-bit Integrated nVidia Graphics 250W psu If you need more information on my computer, here's the complete description I need something cheap, and 2 choices I've looked up are: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=14-121-473&SortField=0&SummaryType=1&Pagesize=10&PurchaseMark=&SelectedRating=5&VideoOnlyMark=False&VendorMark=&IsFeedbackTab=true&SelectedRating5=5&Keywords=%28keywords%29#scrollFullInfo or http://www.bestbuy.com/site/PNY+-+GeForce+210+1GB+DDR2+PCI+Express+2.0+Graphics+Card/9979447.p?id=1218205379527&skuId=9979447#tabbed-specifications I chose the Newegg one for the rebate, and the Bestbuy one because I have a $50 gift card for them. I did research graphics cards so it wasn't just money that decided for me. I'm pretty sure that these would play TOR with my current computer specs, but the big question that isn't really answered on their product descriptions is the power supply. Since both of them don't say, I assume it doesn't matter? That's where I need help. Please guide me as to which I should get, but remember, I only want to be able to play TOR smoothly, nothing else, I have a 360 for my other gaming needs.
  3. Alright Q thanks a lot I'll keep an eye out for sales for the power supply and the video card.
  4. Would this be a good one to get? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121423 I just checked inside my computer and checked my power supply, which is 250w. I also checked for 2 empty slots for the cards power cables and there's 2 empty ones, labeled P3 and P5, both the same size. So The only thing I'm worried about is the power supply. Would I have to upgrade my power supply or not?
  5. So I shouldn't go for the GT 430? Could you maybe give me the link to the GTS 450 and HD 5770, since when it comes to this stuff I'm really unsure about what I'm looking at. EDIT: Nevermind about giving me the links for examples, I just copied and pasted them in Newegg's search. I assume that both of them are better than the GT 430 because they're almost double the price, right? Could you perhaps give me your best recommendation as to which one I should get?
  6. On the side there's a sticker that says "Compaq Presario SR5510F". Here's the page for it on the Compaq site. http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/product?product=3740354&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&lang=en&cc=us Mine looks slightly different than the picture, as mine doesn't have a third 3.5mm port on the front, if that matters at all.
  7. Does the 64-bit memory interface have anything to do with only running with Win7 64-bit or anything? I have Win7 32-bit.
  8. Aww...they only have those Shinobee's in the UK and not the US. Yeah I'm also getting help from the General Tech section and hopefully everything works out. And yeah I'm just looking to play TOR really, since I play everything else on console.
  9. Yeah it's a Compaq Presario from September 2008, so definitely nothing special, even in 2008. Will that video card be compatible with that I have? I think I have DDR2 RAM if that matters at all for video cards. I'm waiting for a sale on RAM so I can upgrade mine from 2GB to 4GB, so would that upgrade along with upgrading my video card to the one you linked to guaranty that I will be able to play TOR smoothly? EDIT: If all of the above are a Yes, can I get a confirmation on whether to go out and place my order for it or any other suggestions? I'd like to save money on rebate if possible. 2nd EDIT: Do I need to look into getting a new power supply? Or is that only if I'm upgrading my video card to something above today's standards?
  10. Do you have any recommendations on what to get and where to get it? Or just which video card to upgrade my current computer with?
  11. Yeah I'm not looking to play Crysis or anything so I don't need the best of the best gaming PC, but hopefully a simple upgrade or maybe a good but cheap off-brand gaming computer like what you got.
  12. Okay, so I made a thread in the TOR section which was about my test results for my computer using "Can You Run It?". My computer failed the test. here are the results: My RAM failed by .1GB, but I plan on upgrading to 4GB from 2GB soon anyway. What I'm concerned about is the video card. Thanks to Hallucination, he gave This Link. If anybody could look at the screenshot and visit the link, please give me recommendations of what I should buy or look into. If you need any more info about my PC specs that aren't in the test just let me know.
  13. Yeah I'll make a thread in there(sorry mods). Thanks for your help though.
  14. Are all of these compatible with what I have? Would upgrading my video card with any of those found on the page you provided along with getting the 4GB RAM be good? Should a new video card be a Nvidia if my current one is?
  15. Using this site, http://www.systemrequirementslab.com/cyri/ , it told me that I couldn't run TOR on either my desktop or my laptop. I failed the site's test with my laptop because of its CPU, which I'm assuming only failed because it's a mobile CPU, but my Desktop, which is older, passed the CPU, but failed the RAM by .1GB(I plan on upgrading to 4GB soon) and the video card failed as well. Here's a screenshot of the results: What I don't understand is that for the video card is that I have more than the required video RAM, and have the required Pixel Shader and Vertex Shader, but I failed? Hopefully that's nothing to worry about and I can just upgrade my RAM to play TOR. Please, anybody who knows a decent amount about computer hardware, let me know what I need to do to run this game.
