both sh*tty. more memory buffer on a crappy card wont do you much good.
does your X1300 do this with any other game or just GRAW? if it does with newer graphics intensive games, it may be caused by your graphics card overheating. tis a common prob and can be solved by either getting good airflow in your case or a nice can of compressed air.
To check if it's a heat issue,take the side of the case off and blow a house fan in the open case.Then go ahead and run the game and see if it still has the issue.That's how I found out my old ATI X800 Pro was overheating about a year ago.
I have x1300 512 So far it rocks, but the over heating issue I had on my other computer. I can tell you this it wasnt a video problem, I had an itergrated Gnivdia and it would Crash so i bought a Ati 9200 (at the time it was a good card for the money) My computer still crashed. Well yes the box fan does work becuase I played all day and never crashed once. This was with rainbow 6 raven sheild and knights of the old republic.
So The computer I bought I bught one with a very good cooling system, plus I upgrade my power supply to a 480 with goood airflow also. I have yet to crash on this computer.
But yes as to the last comment it is an over heating issue(more then likely). You can get fans for inside your computer at bestbuy or cicuit city for less then $10.
well its a dell case so I cant really take the side of the case off. I work in thermal solutions for Intel, but for CPU's, so I dont really have the perfect solution for video thermals, except for extra fans....
Should I swap out this ATI for an NVIDIA 256 card?
