You need a better graphics card. The Geforce 505 is a weak low profile card. You should get something like Geforce 560 Ti, 660 Ti, 570, 580, 670, 680, 690.

Don't give out your personal information on the internet.

Other than that, when having issues with a game most have a "Minimum" spec and a "Recommended" spec. Minimum spec is going to let the game run with most bells and whistles turned off. If you're using a barebones minimum card the very first thing I would recommend is turning off any anti aliasing. The game's going to look kind of jaggy, but you can offset this by running at your screen's native resolution. You might be able to tweak some other settings to get the gameplay a little smoother until you can get your hands on a newer graphics card.

You need to buy a new card try lowering the RES in the game also dont run it at 1080p or higher try 720 p 1280x720p i think and if that still doesn't work lower it even mor. Go buy a Nvidia GTX 660 100-200 $ and you will run most games on max settings. check my yooutube channel to see how games run on my Nvidia GTX 660 OEM 1.5 GB Over clocked in my Alienware x51. All games on my channel thus far are on max settings 1080p max anti alysing and run every game fine.

I had simular problems running Arma 2 with my Geforce 8800GT but what i found was it wasen't my card it was my motherboard, it needed updating now iv updated iv had no problems with any game.So if you get a new card and still have problems try updating your bios.
