    Default Low frame rates...Please help!

    I am running the absolute lowest everything. However I am sitting at 2-6 fps, 6 is on a good day, 4 is about the average. I have the most recent NVIDIA update for my graphics, I basically wiped my comp out before the download, I cant even quest its so bad. If anyone knows anything that can help Id apriciate it.

    Switch to low-res textures.

    Gonna have to resort to "buy a real computer".

    That thing your playing on wasn't made for gaming.

    Your machine is using an on-board graphics card. These are generally intended as "I get on the internet and check my emails mostly" solutions but will play basicly rendered games. When you hit games requiring more you start getting into problems even if you turn the settings right down.

    My honest solution is buy a video card. Even a bottom-end gaming solution will serve you better than what you have now.

    eg: I'm using an old system (Pentium D 3.6) with a bottom of the line 6850 (no factory overclock, cooler or any fancy rubbish) in my second system It runs rift ok until I get into raids, outside fo that it's perfectly playable and even with the slow framerates for Raids I can keep up my contributions for Rifts. Not great but a 6850 would work for you.

    Your only real solution without updating hardware is to lower your resolution. This reduces the number of pixels that your on-board GPU is required to render and one of the very few ways in which you are going to see any gain.

    Seriously how many people were duped to buy a system with NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE. I cant tell you how many posts I see all the time about that crappy onboard hardware.

    Onboard is only meant for people who wants decent video, internet, and solitaire. Not gaming.

    Gaming should only be done with true dedicated graphics card. I wish store would stop scamming people in believing that they got a good system.

    My advise, you need a actual video card. Now that depends on the type of case you have with that HP system.

    You might have to get a new system built, custom only.
