The CPU is only 1.4ghz, which meets the minimum specs for the game i want to play but it still lags.
I looked into a bundle deal of a motherboard and a 2.53ghz CPU but the guy at the shop said its not worth upgrading to that as "mine will run XP fine" and told me if i was to upgrade to go for the more expensive deal with the dual core 2.8ghz CPU but i dont want to spend that much as, like i said before, i dont really use my computer for gaming very often.
So to recap:
1) Is the CPU making my game lag?
2) Will the 2.53ghz CPU improve the speed of the game?
3) Is it really all that necessary to spend an extra $100 in the 2.8ghz processor?
Thanks for taking the time to read this and thanks in advance for any advice you can give.
