Question about Dell OptiPlex GX260 PC Desktop
As far as I tried Need 4 Speed Most Wanted and GTA-5 SanAndreas are not running smoothly my system configuration is GX-280, 2.8 Intel Processor, 1GB Ram, 120GB Hard Disk.. Using Built in AGP Card of 128MB.. Please assist me what I have to do ThanxXx in advance!!
Your problem lies in your graphics card. Your PC has 915G Express Chipset which contains integrated graphics, gma 900. Gma 900 is not made for gaming. You'll be experience lots of problems with gaming with that gma 900. So your best bet is to invest into a new graphics card. One of cheapest you can get is Nvidia Geforce 8400GS, and it's way way better than your gma 900. http://www.amazon.com/e-GeForce-PCI-Express-Graphics-Card-One-512-P2-N738-LR0/dp/tech-data/B0011FKI3M/ref=de_a_smtd
You can get a 8400GS for $38.99. So it's not so expensive and will play NFS Most Wanted perfectly at high settings.
But if you can't invest into a new card, try downloading this software called "Hare", it can defragment your ram, it might help a little.

I'd recommend hit ctrl-alt-del and taking a look at exactly what programs you have running on your system.. Things like itunes, avg, and other non-windows based programs usually have a way of running certain applications in the background. When this happens it hogs most of the main memory your system needs to stack the program codes properly in it's memory to execute control codes to the video card.
Normally what I do for a customer is write down exactly what programs are running when the system has been freshly loaded and then they can compare that list to what is currently running. Also you can check hard drive memory, windows page file.sys to see if that size needs to be adjusted etc. You could also run a sweeper type of progam to try to clear this up as well.

This could be caused by the amount of programs you have that run on startup of the system. Some programs make part of their program run all the time so when you use the rest of the program it starts up faster. Adobe reader and Microsoft Office XP both do this. Open your computer and look at the Programs menu (if using the classic style menu) or all Programs (if using the XP style menus) and go to the Startup menu item and see if there are any programs there. If there are, remember, all those programs are running everytime you start the computer. You can also go to start, run and type in regedit and call up the registery. There are two places in the registery that let programs start when you start the computer. One is HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run. The other is HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run. If you go to the folders on the left hand side of the page, the contenses of those folders are on the right hand side of the page. WARNING!!!! Changing the registery can mess up your computer if you delete the wrong thing. Use this information at your own risk! Virus writers like to load their virus payload in the two above places in the registry so the virus runs everytime the computer starts.
Remember if all these things are running at start up, when you start your game, it has less memory to run in. I would also do a virus check on the computer because a virus could be taking up system resorces makeing the computer run slower.
