unsure on upgrade

  AlexPB 22:55 27 Feb 2008


I have recently started getting into gaming on my pc and am playing games such as Navy field and guildwars etc...these games all play fine with no problems at all. One thing i have noticed though is that when im on things like hotmail and small online java type games the movement of the cursor is very jerkey and slow. I thaught that it is the graphics as it is just onboard graphics at the moment am i wrong is it something else, can somebody help me please.

Thank you

Does your mobo have a PCI-E or an AGP Slot for an additional graphics card?

Is the PCI-E slot the brown one which looks slightly similar to the white card slots if so then yes

Or actually is the brown one the agp slot?

It can be your online speed that it making it jerky, What BB connection speed do you get???

The brown one is an agp slot.

It could be Graphics card but if it plays when you are not on the Net, it may be your connection speed
