Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
Hello people at Fixya!
Sometime we buy one of those video cards, like Nvidia, but not really knows, for what uses we actually need it! well , let me tell you these, from those 7 to 9 gtx model, you don't really need more than those ones for almost all kind of games. you name it! well the tips are, for good gaming!
1) Compatibility OS . 64bits or 32bit ( I prefer 32bit) for some compatibilties!
2) RAM, yes, it is some hungry games, more RAM more space!
3) Drive space, You going to need it, and a good swapfile sometimes.!
4) Video Drivers, The heart of all games issues, try to use the one that came with your video card, if all goes fine, KEEP IT! but if not use the latest version .
sometimes we need to do a research, for drivers that don't hurt the performance, graphic card, or bad writen drivers. be carefull on these one.
some drivers, may harmfull your graphic card, or overheat! giving you errors, or dreaded BSODs, or "Display driver NVIDIA windows kernel mode driver stopped responding and successfully recovered!! things like that, indeed some are relative to these error or bad driver. (usually).
My advice: always do a good research for good drivers, PSUs, and cooling system! very important points in gaming!
well that's all for now! :) keep the good game!
