Newbie Pc learner!
First ever post, plus I’m a total noob when it comes to the PC world.
Long story short I acquired an old Alienware Aurora R3 from a relative and have taken my first steps away from console gaming, and into the vast planet of pc gaming.
Now it runs some games flawlessly but others it struggles, (the likes of Call of duty, Fortnite, Witcher) they run but only on either really low graphics or I get severe frame drops.
I’ve briefly read into and started to research how to improve the running, upgrading graphics cards, ram, etc just wondered if any of you guys could possibly help me out a little further as the pc jargon at present totally baffles me.?
I’ll list the full description of the current set up I have and hopefully be able to get some help on what I can/can’t upgrade or what I can/can’t do to make this pc run to the best of it’s ability.
If it’s at it’s maximum I’ll probably just move it on and buy a newer more modern system, just hoping I can get it to run a few of the newer games a little smoother!
Aurora R3 875w chassis.
Intel Core I7-2600 (3.40GHz, 8mb L3 Cache, 8C)
Memory : 6GB (2x2GB + 2x1GB) 133MHz Dual Channel Memory
Hard-drive : 500gb Serial ATA (7200rpm)
Graphics : Dual 1GB AMD Radeon HD6870 CrossfireX
Windows 7 (64bit)
Thank you in advance for any help you guys can provide!
