Everything Else / Videocard Upgrade
« on: September 15, 2012, 12:45:52 AM »
Hi,

I didn't know where else to start this topic, so I hope I'm right..

I bought a computer like a year or two ago maybe 3, can't remember exactly, and the videocard that is in it is the Nvidia G210 512mb, It's just a basic card, I can run WoW, GW2, etc.. Ofcourse on low settings, I do get 100+ fps in WoW though, but I can't get above 50 in GW2 and the gameplay doesn't seem all that smooth. Here are the stats:

Now, I wanted to upgrade my card just a little, right now I don't have the money to buy a whole new computer so, I'm stuck with a 300W power supply which doesn't give me alot of choices when it comes to getting a nice videocard..I'm also not really interested in upgrading my power supply and getting a SUPER videocard, just something to get by for a few months. So I ordered the Nvidia GT610 1GB. Haven't paid anything yet, by ordering I mean it'll be available in the computer store near me. The stats from this card are:

I'm not a hardware specialist and I'm not looking for a BIG upgrade, just something to make my games run that little bit smoother. It has 3x the CUDA processors my current one has, more memory, higher clock speeds, directx 11 support instead of 10.1, opengl 4.2 support instead of 3.1 and also it's max. temperature is 102° instead of 105° and the power usage 29w instead of 30w.

So my question is, did I make a good choice, or is there a better card that can run on a 300W power supply. Thank you for your time.

General Computer Support / Memory Leak ?
« on: May 19, 2012, 07:39:30 AM »
So here I am again, lol. I seem to be having ALOT of computer issues lately  :undecided:

So, I run Cleanmem, always, It runs with startup. And I notice that sometimes after startup my computer is using +- 600mb of memory, but most of the time it's around 1.2-1.5 GB and to me that looks like alot.. The only things I have running at startup are:

- Cleanmem
- Avast
- Superantispyware
- F.lux

But I highly doubt they are the cause of this memory usage. I'm not an expert, maybe this usage is normal, but to me it just looks like alot..

Anyways, yeah, thanks for the advice to come.

Everything Else / Videocards under 200 €
« on: May 17, 2012, 01:43:00 PM »
So basicly, I'm not very rich and I'm looking for a good videocard under 200€.

Right now I got Nvidia G210 and I'm looking for a decent upgrade.
Doesn't have to be top notch, but if I can run BF3 and games like that.

I just noticed that my videocard is only 512 mb so cards starting at 1GB would be nice.

Thanks for your advice.

Tweaking.com Support & Help / Doesn't Save Tweaks ?
« on: May 14, 2012, 02:13:31 AM »
Ok, for some reason I get the feeling that Advanced System Tweaker isn't saving the tweaks I enable? Although I run the program as administrator.

The first time I ran it and then I rebooted my computer I could see the tweaks like Load desktop in a different i don't know what it's called, but I could see the message..and now it doesn't appear on my screen anymore..

Also each time I start AST again, and I click the tweaks that I've enabled it just says "Has been done 0 times" or something, the little message at the bottom..Btw sorry for my "something something" talk, but I just woke up, so yeah, I hope someone can tell me that this is normal or how I can fix it if it's not.

Thank you for your time.
