    right now I'm playing call of duty advanced warfare for pc (6dvds)
    the only way I could get my system to run stable was to turn down the texture
    settings & turn page file back on--
    I have a SSD & had turned page file down to 1024mb when I optimized it for windows 7--
    so I changed page file back to system select & it dosen't crash or
    pop up with low memory error anymore.
    I have 8GB of RAM & my Video card has 2GB of VRAM-----
    cod aw pc seems to want 4gb of vram on your graphics card

    GTA V looks out of this world on YOUTUBE---

    so should I just buy more RAM-- change 8 to 16 GBs // 54$ at the EGG
    or will it get by on page file like in the game I'm playing now--
    GTA V recommended says GTX660 with 2gb---
    I have a GTX960 with 2gb vram--
    when I bought my card nobody said these games would want VRAM (4gb) for 4K
    settings----who has a 4k Monitor ?????
    I sure don't---
    I thought I was doing good with 1920x1080p---
    sheesh

    Well what you need to do is use any of the available methods to monitor your system ram usage during gaming, then you can decide if you really need anymore ram, otherwise it is only speculation; every system works differently, so you need to find out what yours does during heavy gaming.

    call of duty advanced warfare for pc is laggy for every one. its on the games end. when ever i play. we all complain about the lag. And the last update seams to me made it worse. When ever i go into most of the maps. I lag for the first minute. Then it gets a little better. But during the game my FPS goes up and down. People say this problem is from them not having dedicated servers.

    have U tried GTA V PC yet---

    I was thinking about getting it at the end of the month--
    I have never played GTA 4 PC --
    but what I remember from the earlier GTA games---
    U can go around doing the missions or just driver around causing mayhem-----
    thats the """"youtube""" complaint about COD AW---the campaign
    makes U go to certain spots & do this or that----in a certain order
    I saw on Google where U can play COD AW on-line against the
    computer (bot)----- I'll give that a try----I've yet to master the Exo suit
    controls----- in Campaign a lot of the times jump boost seems to be
    turned off---- pressing ""Space Bar / Up""" doesn't seem to do anything---
    and in the little tutorial----it runs U through so fast U only get to do each move once---
    the Boost Jump / Down off of buildings I seem to live with just loosing a little
    health so not sure if I'm doing it right---

    you have to hit the space bar twice to get the boost to work. then once in the air you can hit the run button plus left, right, reverse and the forward button to boost in that direction. it takes practice
