I got a new video card which is amazing - 1Gb AMD radeon HD 6850. I was shocked when after installing skyrim the suggested settings were the second best ones. I've heard this is due to that game being so GPU intensive. Whatever, I'll take it. I didn't even expect to be able to play it without upgrading more things. But I can barely play some of the high quality videos that seem to be the norm these days. Say an mp4 of a movie-length video that's about 2.5 - 3.0 gb. Only takes a second or two on vlc or mpc before there's a problem, even after shutting down all other programs. Pretty unwatchable. I guess it's the processor or the memory, right? I have duo 3.0 GHz and 4 gb. Which one is more likely to help the video problem more if I upgrade it? I also have shitty vista. I wonder if there can be problems related to the OS for this kind of thing. Doubt it, but who knows anymore.
