Hey guys I got TF2 a couple months ago and really enjoyed it and just recently built a new PC.
Here are the specs.
GPU: ATI HIS 6870
CPU: AMD Athlon II X3 455 3.30GHz
RAM: Some type of Crucial DDR3 4GB
PSU: Some type of 750watt
MB: Biostar A770E3
So basically I'm having FPS problems. The problems only happen during a gunfight in an open area but I'm pretty sure that with my specs I sohludent be getting any FPS problems. Also it dosent matter what I change the settings to if the game is on all low then my FPS is still dropping to like 40 during gun fights. I've tried reinstalling the game and reinstalling Steam but had no luck. I just finished reinstalling my OS and I'm downloading TF2 again right now so I'll tell you guys if it is still fucked up after that. But until then do you guys have any suggestions as to what I could try doing. Also I have v-sync off and multicore rendering turned on so those arent the problems.
I know that it's fine but it should be staying constantly above 60fps that why I built this PC so I could experience that. My PC works fine on games like Just Cause 2 and some other deamnding games but on TF2 it's just not right.
How do you disable that and how does it help. I am also facing similar stuttering issues (fps drops but mine drops to around 20-15 fps...)
Well it's in the advanced video section but it's turned off by default. It's supposed to actually help peoples FPS that's why I have it turned on but that turned out not to be the problem I just left it on.
Lol, Okay I was reading one thing an a guy had a gtx 470, and his FPS was crap. And the reason was one of two things.
First: he had his GPU in the second PCIE slot because there were wires in the way before, he then moved it.
Second: He made sure that he plugged the 6pin into his graphics card and in his post he said "when i was checking if they were secure it clicked in, I think"
He said both of those in the same post and said his problem had disappeared. Could you possibly do both of those things? I doubt this is it but aleast give it a try.
I've already been messing around with that stuff before but that wasn't it. I don't think it's the card though because I was able to run a pirated version of just cause 2 perfectly. Constantly above 60fps. I think, for me at least, it is just a problem with steam.
