What do I need to run games at good settings and fps?
Jun 9, 2014, 10:22 AM
Hello, I was wondering if someone know what do I need to run games better, I actually get 25-28fps playing Battlefield 3 in singleplayer, here are my specs:
CPU: Intel E5200 Dual Core @ 2.5GHz (OC to 3.2GHz)
GPU: Nvidia Geforce GT430 gpu clock 700MHz memory clock 533MHz (OC to gpu clock:865MHz, memory clock 632MHz)
Mobo: P5KPL-AM SE
RAM: 1x1GB and 1x2GB(3GB) @ 400MHz DRR2 (I think that i must upgrade RAM, but I'm not sure)

Well probably anything built during the last 12 months will outperform your 6-year old CPU/GPU.
Don't spend any money on upgrading the RAM. Your entire system is up for a refresh.

You are right, but I can run 24-27fps Watch dogs, I think the problem is the RAM because when I look in performance at task managers, it shows like 2.75gb.
Also, I was trying to buy a new pc, I will do it when 2014 ends. BTW my graphics card Its outdated but not 6 years tho
