"Call of Duty" runs in slow motion on my PC.


Hi thomas,

Upgrading video cards will definitely increase in performance. You asked whether you should upgrade your entire PC or just the card and that really depends on the hardware you are running. If all of your hardware just barely meets the requirements than upgrading the videocard WILL give you a noticeable improvement but obviously it will not be as good as getting a better CPU and more RAM as well as a new card.

A good measure of a cards performance is based on the series of cards it is from. Your Geforce is from the 6000 series of Nvidia cards, they have 7000, 8000, and even 9000 series cards atm.

I would recommend something like an XFX Geforce 9800 GTX+ series card with 512MB of onboard memory, or any other competing card in the 200$ price range. This will definitely give you an increase in performance, and is a very popular card.

Hope this helps and please take a second to rate!

About Nvidia Geforce 8400GS graphics card?


It can be used to play Call of Duty 4, CRYSIS and etc. So, i dont think that your Black Hawk Down would be an issue.
But pls make sure that u have sufficient RAM.

Graphic Cardur


Cards range from $50-$500 It all depends on how High-end of a Card you need, There are a Few Things you need to know before buying a Card though
1) Is this a Laptop or desktop, Sounds easy enough but Laptops usually have no slots to install an additional card
2) What type of slot (If Applicable) you have. Options are usually AGP, PCI, PCI-e (PCI Express Which ranges from x1 to x16, for graphics this is usually x16) and PCI-e 2.0 (Newer model of computers and New model of cards)
3) If your Power supply can handle an addtional card. Some cards draw alot of power and require their on power connection.
4). Space inside the computer, Graphics card come in low profile for small spaces, Knowing the appropriate size of the Card is very important.

All of this can be researched and Installed by yourself, and the card is easy to install, Just slide it in the correct port, or you can bring this into Best Buy and We can install this for $49.99 + additional taxes, Its upto you to decide it the work warrants saving the money

Touch pad won't respond frozen in centre of screen tried system restore never resolved issue - toshiba equium l40 series laptop windows vista


Did it work before? What was changed since? If it did, does a mouse work? If so, goto system and uninstall the pad, reconnect the pad and reboot. Driver may have been corrupted.
