Not much you can do without buying stuff, unless you want to use www.onlive.com

I assume you have cleared out spare space, defragged, disabled all unneeded services etc?
Theres not that much that will give a major boast.

Nah but seriously, there's little you can do without spending some bucks.

My advice, sell your GPU and buy a new one, and add some ram. That shouldn't cost you THAT much. (if you add more ram you should install win 7 64 bit)

Depends on what you can do to help fix it. Here's a free and easy way to help with storage and to upgrade:

Download a new OS for Windows 7 professional edition to upgrade.
Save the downloaded OS to a flash drive or cd. Then reformat your PCs hard drive to wipe the computer of its current OS. Restart and install the new OS.
If you have any old, and still working computers, disassemble the tower and remove the hard drive. Take the clip out of the back and reset it to make this hard drive a 'slave'. Install and wire this hard drive into your new computer to give it more gigs of memory.

I had to do that with my XP a few years ago.

Hi BusyBee,

This is a notebook or a desktop PC?

You can tell your CPU, GPU and RAM are all outdated.

Your E5700 processor's cache is only 2MB, and it's dual-core.
I would recommend a quad-core i5, these are the best for gaming. (Like an i5-3300)

The graphics card has 1GB of memory, which is fine. But then I can see the resolution is 1280 x 1024 x 60 hertz, I don't know if this is your max resolution, but in that case you definitely need a new one.
Your post doesn't list the card's memory and core speeds nor the type of memory, I guess it's DDR3. So it would be great if you can also get this info.

Your RAM relies on your CPU and Motherboard, I can't find the max. supported RAM clockspeed for your CPU... You must find your current memory type (DDR2,DDR3,SDRAM) before I can say anything about it.

I also see your current systemtype is 32-bit(x86), while the processor has an instruction set of 64-bit. Have you reinstalled Windows/another version?

My conclusion is to buy a new one, or start saving money for a new one. You will eventually have to soon, if you still want to play games.
You will notice a huge performance boost.

Football Glory > Fifa + Pes.

Seriously though this is the only soccer game I've ever tried.

You think Edu Vargas is a good player - you understand nothing of football. My opinion is more relevant than yours.

Edu Vargas was one of the best south american players in 2011 along with Neymar ¬¬

He went to Italy too soon imo.

Lol, I know, sorry, I just couldn't resist I too think it's not all of his fault, it's not easy to play in a team that only lets you play a game every 2 or 3 weeks. He should go to a less important team than Napoli and play regurarly. Besides, Napoli's mister is known for ruining young players carreers. That post was merely a joke I also met him in the street one day and shouted "Adelante, Edu!", but his face was so sad that I thought I'd better shut up :P
