Low FPS in Team Fortress 2 Tags: PC gaming Team-Fortress-2 Low FPS Video Games Last response: April 7, 2010 7:01 PM in Video Games Share kawamori March 31, 2010 10:44:20 PM Long story short, bought my friend's old rig because its better then the one i've been using, and he gets massive FPS on Counterstrike Source. When I run Tf2 on default settings (using autoconfig) and 1280x720 it stays around 20FPS in 16+ players and goes to 15FPS in anything above 24 players Pretty okay set up getting low FPS. 2.8GHZ E7400 Dual-core Biostar G31 Mobo XFX 9500GT 3GB Ram 32bit Vista 450w PSU I updated all the drivers and even the chipset drivers as well. And it still hovers a constant 20FPS. I know theses parts aren't high end, but it should atleast give more than this. Any suggestions? Thank you.

Sometimes for unknown reasons my multiplyer will change from 9x to 6x, destroying my fps in all my games. download cpu-z and check if your Ghz matches the factory rating. kawamori April 7, 2010 7:01:13 PM @swifty_morgan I verified myself that all the parts were there myself. Down 10.4Mb/s Up 2.3Mb/s @tarquinbiscuitbarrel I defragged, and It shows only 2% total disk fragmentation (all system files.) And no background programs (clean boot.) @ericpol Yeah, I thought that the servers could be a problem, so I played on <20 ping servers, still same results. @jcpwn3r Yeah, it matches factory multipliers. Although, I could try OC'ing but I dont wanna risk it. Thanks for all the replies. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
