I got Left 4 Dead last night, and realized that I'm seriously underpowered to run this game. I made the assumption that since I've been able to run HL2 and Counter-Strike that this would work (same engine?). Anyway, I'm running 300 MHz, 512 Ram, Radeon 9800 video card (driver is up-to-date). I'm searching around, and I'm seeing that I'd probably have to upgrade the motherboard to boost the RAM to a decent level. I'd probably want a new video card too... My question is - for the cost of upgrading this, should I just buy a new tower? What are your thoughts? Where do you get your hardware? Is Vista as bad as I've heard? Please be nice - I'm not really good at this stuff. I'm a guy that still has a record player in the living room. :embarassed: Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
