Hi B4W,

The problem is possibly/probably being caused by your Graphics card being underpowered... the 256MB GeForce 7300LE TutboCache only has 128MB of onboard memory but, through the TurboCache system, it can 'borrow' up to 128MB of system memory to bring it up to a maximum of 256MB as and when required to handle a particular process or game.

I know you have plenty of system RAM available, but the problem is that onboard Graphics card video memory is much faster than system memory, so a card using 256MB of 'mixed speed' memory is far less efficent than a 'normal' gaming card with 256MB of dedicated onboard video memory.

I think a Graphics card upgrade is needed to bring it up to the same standard as the rest of your setup.

Richie.
