Cam sites exist to help guys that are horny who don’t have someone they can turn to for a fix in real life. This is what makes them so awesome. Once you’ve dropped some tokens on a private show from your favorite cam model, though, nothing’s going to kill your boner faster than having the video lag or the sound disappear because your computer just isn’t that great. If you want to enjoy your cam site shows the way you should but you’re not sure if your computer can handle it, there are going to be indicators that maybe you should drop some cash on upgrading your rig.
Issues with Video
Older (or super cheap) computers just can’t handle video the way newer or better ones can. This means that if you’re running a rig that’s outdated or just really cheap, you may run into issues with the video, and not just on cam sites. If you’re watching something on YouTube for example and the video keeps fragmenting or visual artifacts appear, it means that your graphics card is either shot or that it’s incapable of handling what you want it to. You may be able to fix it by making sure that all of your drivers are up to date, particularly those for flash player and your graphics card. If that doesn’t fix it, it might be time to get a new graphics card. Top end ones aren’t cheap, but you can buy lower end ones for a relatively affordable price that will get you right where you want to be: able to enjoy a sexy private show from your cam girl of choice.
Lag and Freeze Ups
Older computers tend to pick up malware, bloatware, adware, and viruses over time. Just like anything, they get slower the older they get. This means that if your rig is over seven years old, it’s likely running at a glacial pace (unless you’ve been really strict about maintaining it). This can lead to issues when you’re trying to watch your fave cam girl do her dirty thing, namely really slow loading, dropping connection, or even freezing. You can do a couple of things to try and remedy this. First of all, make sure you’re running some kind of antivirus program to try and take care of any problems you might have (be aware, though, that sometimes if the problem is too deep-rooted, these programs can’t help). You should also make sure to defrag your computer, but if you haven’t done that in years it’s going to take a very long time. If neither of those work, it’s probably time for you to buy a new rig because this one just isn’t coming back to life.
Most computers come with their own set of speakers. However, these usually produce crappy sound. If you really want to watch a cam girl in the best setup possible, you need to upgrade to surround sound speakers. A computer surround sound setup is usually cheaper than what you’d pay for an actual entertainment package, so go ahead and pick them up.
