sigh. Don't you hate it when your computer is just not good enough to play the games you want? First-world gamer problems.
Solution: go play old games. Because old games required less powerful computers, were entertaining, didn't last for just 4 hours, and were, well, (for lack of a better word) FUN. Graphics? oh, who cares.
So I'm sitting here enjoying Freelancer and MechWarrior: 4 Mercenaries. I only wish the Mod community put more time into the old games. (not wolfenstein, for goodness sakes who even plays that game???)
But if I get bored (heaven forbid), then I can go back to playing WipEout and Resistance on my Vita. :)
