Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
My PC is inexplicably slow. [SOLVED LOCK PLZ]

Right well I recently got another PC and continued my proud tradition of having something wrong with it.
I first noticed problems when I tried to play DoW 2 on it. The requirements on the back of the box say I need vista, a 3.2 Ghz processor or any dual core, 1.5 GB of RAM and at least a GeForce 6600 gt. My computer has vista, a dual core 2.8 GHz processor, 3 GB of ram and a GeForce 9300M GS. So I was feeling pretty confident. I did the performance test for the game on medium settings and it failed miserably, long story short with everything as low as it can go it was still failing the performance test.
I took it round to a buddy of mine and we wiped it to get all the shit and clutter that sony put on it for no other reason than to absorb runtime apparently, we updated vista, the drivers for the graphics card and reinstalled DoW 2. It still runs the game pretty poorly on minimum settings.
This is me out of ideas. I'm tearing my hair out here and am more or less resigned to returning the fucking thing and getting my money back but I thought I would try a last ditch attempt here to salvage the situation.
For the sake of my blood pressure any help would be appreciated.
