    hello all,
    im using eMachine ET1861 with this specification:

    Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit
    Intel Core i3 530 @ 2.93 GHZ
    Samsung 2048MB DDR3 RAM
    500GB HDD
    Intergrated Intel HD graphics (built-in)

    the questions are :

    1. What is the most suitable graphic card i need to install. Now im playing Modern Warfare 2 and it's a bit lagging.

    2. What is the suitable value for setting the paging file.

    hope you all will help. :)

    First...get more RAM, max it out to 4 gigs total.

    Second...you could spend a loooooooootttt of time experimenting with graphics cards to see which will give you a stable and good performing system. With a lot of base home grade off the shelf models like this eMachine, "upgrades" are often limited. Does the motherboard have a slot? Is there room in the case? Does my power supply have the required 4 or 6 pin power connections that many higher end graphics cards require? Will the graphics card I purchase be compatible with my motherboard, and run problem free, or will it have some quirky conflicts with my motherboard?

    A quick check on Google shows that you can purcase your model computer with an nVidia GT320 1 gig graphics card as an option, so we can assume that that particular card will run fine in your system and you'll have a motherboard and power supply that will work with it.

    It's currently an OEM only card, but perhaps you can get it through Acer/eMachine. It appears that card will be going retail soon, it's a revamped 200 series nVidia card, DX 10.1 support.
