Hi my lotters! I use desktop computer. It's configuration is Inter(R)Celeron(R) cpu (2.8ghz), mother boad intel (Essintial Series D945GCNL), Agp 128 on board, Ram 512mb, directx 9) but I can not play even low configuration games such as Age of empires III, House of death III, which needs to low configure to I have . When I start this game, its became so slow that I can't play. Can anyone say me why I can't play those game or How to I play those games?

Ram 512m - You should up that if you can. Agp 128 on board - Shared or dedicated RAM? Shared means it takes that 128MB from your 512 (so you only have 384MB). Dedicated does not. If it is shared then look at getting a new one. Upping the memory (assuming it does not use anything strange) to 1GB (IMO the min for anything other than a netbook) costs between £20 and £40 (35 - 70 USD). While a cheap new graphics card will be in the same range. I'd up the memory first.

Thanks a lot for your response. Can You explain me, "Can I play low configuration games which needs only 64agp and 256 ram?" I mean that its I have but I can't play.

No, no one without access to your computer can. My guesses would be: You have a lot of unrequired rubbish installed (from spy ware to just normal sillyness (animated wallpapers)). You are attempting to run the game with the settings to high. One (or more) of your components are really low end. A really bad harddisk or graphics card would slow you computer down to a crawl. It would be worth running a virus checker & spyware checker on your computer, then defragging the drive. Maybe even re-install your OS, and only installing what is required.

Onboard video cannot support modern games need a lot of acceleration from the buffer. I have a fx5500 ddr1 video card and it cannot play new games as ddr1 memory is considered old school nowadays as ddr3 videocards has become todays standard. Also, 1gig of memory has become a minimum in new games.

I consider 2005 modern already. But if the games your talking about are in your specifications, then its really the built-in videocard. Built-in video struggle at 3D applications. Like what others say, built-in video shares memory from the RAM and the buffer speed is very slow compared to the dedicated videocard. Also, the route is longer from the memory going to the video before going to the monitor as to the dedicated where it is more direct from video to the monitor. Dedicated video has its own powerful video processor while built-in has a mediocre processor. You can only play games at software rendering level as it would struggle at direct3D and is not supported in openGL

Hy my lotter i think u have a good configuration which is needed to play a good game. Why u dont i dont know. But i think one problem is that ur Agp Card is built in. Sometime some game needs video controller and 3d accelerator support. Some time it is not shown in the requirement. IT is good for u to contact with that person from whom u buy this system
