(If your computer is still running in 640 by 480 mode then you really should
go and find out what the word 'UPGRADE' means.
Take our advice, you really need to go out and buy
yourself some new hardware -go on, you know you've been wanting to (and let's be
honest, you really, really need to). Here are some pointers: First of all you
must get yourself a
decent graphics card, preferably with 3D acceleration (after some recent
graphics troubles, Geoff would definitely recommend a Geforce of some sort - FX
is pretty damn good), and while you're at it, don't
underestimate the importance of a good sound card, especially when accompanied
by a set of quality quadraphonic speakers (Creative Labs have never let us down.
), oh yes, it is also becoming imperative that all computers have a DVD CD-ROM
so why don't you get a lovely 50 odd speed drive and as a finishing touch get a whopping
monitor for the perfect gaming/home theatre system.)
