What FPS Should I be getting on games like COD4 and TF2 with this rig

Whenever I am playing team fortress 2, cod4, or really any shooter, I am only getting around 20-30 framesper second, and sometimes even lower. It seems that whenever I enter an area with lots of explosions or combat, the whole system just **** up and my frames per second drops to almost nothing. I am including a dxdiag here, and while the drivers may not be the most recent, I have tried the latest drivers and this has not fixed my issues. I really am at the end of my rope here since I have tried everything conventional tech support has given me, and I pass reccomended specs on all these games.

More about : fps games cod4 tf2 rig

September 15, 2008 2:05:51 AM

ok u didnt need to put all those specs, all that matters is just ur RAM ur CPU and ur GPU....

u should get 60+fps at least.... the 8800gt is a good card... and cant go wrong with the q6600... i have no idea what ur problem is but i have a similar with my rig but only in crysis on very high.... i get excelent fps (50-60) untill i get into an area with grenades and rockets, then i drop to 10 or below... i partially fixed this by going to task manager and ending everything i dont need.... and if u can u can lower your particle and shader qualities and that helped me... u might have a more serious problem, in that case im of no help. sorry if u have already tried all of this....
September 15, 2008 3:42:21 AM

Overclock your cpu to at least 3ghz. It's well capable of that.
Make sure to research on your board. I have one as well and you need to delink your ram before oc'ing the cpu.

Do you have AA/AF enabled in games?
These are a huge hog on fps..
You're card should be getting around the 60fps mark on COD4 no problem with AA/AF off and everything else maxed.

ive got a similar system:
q6600 (stock)
8800gt
2GB pc6400
650i ultra

and in TF2 I usually get 60-80 fps with everything on high and 4xAA 4xAF

of course you will get fps drops in big battles but should only be 30fps min.

If you have 16xAA 16XAF then you will get around 30-40fps avg. If thats the case you should lower it because you wont notice a difference.
September 17, 2008 1:59:41 AM

alright well I have turned off both AA and AF and it doesn't help a single bit. Now will OCING my cpu cause a huge hike in performance?
September 17, 2008 9:00:02 PM

that's weird..what did you have AA+AF set at?
September 18, 2008 1:48:32 AM

Think about this for a second dude, you have 4GB of RAM, a Q6600 and an 8800GT, which, should be plenty capable of maxing most games out.... why would you try to OC the CPU? If anything, it will just make matters worse. What is your power supply? What resolution are you running at?
September 18, 2008 2:02:30 AM

I know, the whole freaking thing is illogical to me. As I have stated, I have tried both the highest and lowest resolution, with no difference. Same bad fps. The PSU is an OCZ gamestream 700W, which I think is more than enough. As to the previous question, I don't know what it was set at, but it was the default.


I mean I am not talking little performance tweaks here. I am talking about going from 90-91 fps in the first 2 minutes of the game, all the way down to like 10-20. I have tried almost everything I can think of. I'm about ready to call defective vid card and send in for a replacement.
September 18, 2008 2:22:35 AM

Heya,

Very odd. I have an 8800gt and it bosses games around at high resolution and high settings and I have an AMD5000+ and only 2 gigs of ram. I mean, I average 36 fps in crysis's built in time demo at high settings at 1680x1050. So you should be able to do very well in whatever games you're playing.

Something is definitely up.

Very best,
September 18, 2008 2:37:03 AM

Use spybot search and destroy, then use an anti-virus program. . .

Also, make sure that you're not doing a virus check while playing games.
September 19, 2008 12:08:34 AM

I use antivirus programs and I regularly clean my system. This is not the problem.
September 19, 2008 12:15:31 AM

Try the gpu in someone else's system to determine if the GPU is faulty or not. If you have an identical issue in someone elses system, then its the gpu.

Sounds to me like its overheating, hence throttling down to stop failure; however given that you are overclocking your cpu i'm going to guess you have enough technical know-how to provide proper air flow to the components.

Its quite possible its faulty, try replacing the thermal paste on the gpu if you have the same problem in another PC, and if you feel comfortable doing that assuming its inside of your gpu's warranty.
