Default intro+some driver questions(mini 10) - 01-01-2010, 07:53 AM

Hey Guys, Ive been reading these forums for a week or two since I got my Dell Mini 10. I have since decrapwared my computer and installed all of my essentials. I'm what most people would call an avid PC gamer, I play mostly FPS's but am open to other genres as well. I don't expect to play FPS games on my Mini but I have installed Torchlight and have played that some. I was wondering what the best drivers are for light 3d gaming on my Mini. Currently I have the IEDG 10....1447 driver but im only getting 10-15 FPS(at best!) in Torchlight at 800x480 res. I don't know if thats normal or if I should the Intel GMA500 graphics accelerator drivers. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I loveeee my PC games. Thanks in advance (:

I'm Sorry... But there's not much to do... Try to overclock it, you will gain some fps for sure, but I don't know if it will become playable... Search setfsb in the forum for overclock infos, or PM me. However you should try to use games from 1998-2002 ages. For example: Serious Sam 2 in openGL, with IEGD, will work well!
