Hi All,

Bit of advice, When I'm gaming and come under load I suffer massive FPS drops eg: As soon as I enter combat on Planetside 2, Or randomly during boss encounters when Raiding on WoW.

I Beleive its my CPU bottlenecking my system, So would me overclocking deal with this issue?

I'm running:

CPU: AMD Phenom ii 955 x4 Black Edition
GPU: Nvidia Geforce GTX 650 Ti Boost 2GB
RAM: 8gb Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600mhz CL9 XMP
PSU: Corsair CX 500
Cooling: Xigmatek CAC Gaia
OS: Win7 64Bit Home Premium

Any advice would be great cos i'm really at a loss on what else I can do to sort this out

Many Thanks

Yeah, oc'ing would help. Multiplayer strains the cpu heavily.

Best solution

Recently they updated PS2 to be able to play better with lower end computers.
One of my friends had the exact CPU, gpu and ram. Even overclock at 3.8, it just didn't work in big combats.
On a lot of forums, overclocking the CPU over 4 ghz doesn't do much.

I don't know if PS2 will continue optimizing for slower CPU.
But the best thing to do right is consider getting a new mobo anc CPU if you want to play at descent graphics with PS2 at least.

Ok, Thanks for the responses, It does seem to only be multi-player games that i have issues with so I guess i'll give overclocking a try once i figure out my all new internet/router problems. Thanks guys
