Why did you buy '09 version?????? There's a 2011 version which is better in every way...

Still, take a look at the Technical issues FAQ sticky, you'll find info on how to update '09.

Yes, Jesse is right, 2011 is easier on resources, and besides it has a number of graphic options that you could tune down to improve performance (which you can't do in the 2009 version). Basically, 2011 uses the same engine, but improves it.

So, if the performance is your main issue, I would recommend getting the 2011 version. You must have realised already that the 2009 was meant to be an MMO, but this failed and the online servers aren't running anymore. What's more, a bunch of content was online-only, and you won't be able to access it from the Single player. In 2011 they reworked all this so that the game is strictly Single player, with all features accessible (and some additional content that didn't exist in 2009, like Metro).

Besides, now that you have 2009, you can get 2011 it with 50% discount.
