The card may be old but it was top of the line when i bought it and cost over 400 for it and it still has no problems running any of the last games at very well indeed. incase you dont believe ill copy paste it here for you.

A: The minimum system requirements are:

OS: Windows XP SP2 / Windows Vista / Windows 7 (32 or 64-bit)
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo 1.8 Ghz or AMD Athlon X2 3800+
Memory: 1GB RAM
Video: NVIDIA GeForce 7950 / ATI Radeon X1800 / Intel HD Graphics
Sound: DirectX 9.0c Compatible Soundcard
DirectX: Version 9.0c or Higher
HDD: 10GB Free Disk Space
Network: Internet Broadband Connection Required
Disc: 6X DVD-ROM

The recommended system specifications are:
OS: Windows XP SP2 / Windows Vista / Windows 7 (32 or 64-bit)
CPU: Intel E8400 Core 2 Duo or AMD Athlon X2 5600+
Memory: 2GB RAM+
Video: NVIDIA GeForce 8800 / ATI Radeon HD 3850+
Sound: DirectX 9.0c Compatible Soundcard
DirectX: Version 9.0c or Higher
HDD: 10GB Free Disk Space
Network: Internet Broadband Connection Required
Disc: 6X DVD-ROM

so as you can see my comp is above minimum specs as stated and in fact better than recommended.
Actually please learn to read. Look at the quote I said first, thus I was replying to VolatileMan who was the one who said you had a supercomputer, I was stating you didn't then went on to explain I had a similar problem which I also think is due to STO. Either you need to read the full post + quote or your trolling your own thread...

And BTW, when I bought that card, brand new, in Australia where most stuff costs more, it only cost me like $580 AU$ which was probably around 250-300 your currency. Plus it won't run all latest games very well, hell there is a game out there which I'm beta testing that my GTX295 can't run maxed out.
