Graphics Card problems

  FengShui 15:39 18 Jul 2007

I just installed NVIDIA GeForce 7300 LE & whilst playing games I get slowdown unless I set it to Low End graphics and use the smallest screen resolution (640 x 480). I don't really know much about graphics cards so can anyone help?

I'm on XP (SP2) and the game in question is Phantasy Star Universe.

If you are into gaming, you have chosen the wrong card.

Ok, so the graphics card is clearly the weakest part of the system. Things might improve if you update the drivers, but I doubt it. You could Google to see if there are any patches for known issues with this particular game.

I'm using the most current drivers and the game auto patches every week. :( Looks like I made a bad move with this card then.
