I think the processor is to oldfashioned. It´s a Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU 950 @ 3.07GHz (8 CPUs), ~3.1GHz. It´s fast enought with a good graphic card for most of the games, but - i don´t know it before - doesn´t support AVX command-set. unfortunately, it´s not possible to use the motherboard and processor socket for a newer processor. So what i know now, only way should be a new motherboard, processor, RAM and so on. Or may be cheaper, a new PC with processor which supports AVX. The Support of Novaquark wrote me also. May be there is another solution i don`t know yet.
