I recently built a budget pc to be used for moderate gaming and heaving programming. Most of the components came from my old pc, only the motherboard and processor are new.
athlon 64 3000+
msi k8t neo2-f
inno3d 5200 128mb
256 ddr 333
20 gig HD
I have no problem with the apps that i'm using but its the gaming capability that i have to take issue with.
I used NFS to test the capability of the PC but in the middle of the game i get a warning message "low virtual memory"
can't my pc handle the load?
what can i do to improve system performance?
I might be able to help, but maybe not. First of all, that motherboard in particular, and practically all motherboards using that chipset, can be a little "extra difficult" to get into Dual-Channel mode.
First thing you'll want to do is remove the old RAM, since you need matched pairs to run dual-channel.
Try booting one module in Slot 2. If that works, go into BIOS and increase the first three latency values by value (for example, 2.5-3-3 to 3-4-4), and increase the memory voltage to 2.8v. Reboot, then shut down and install the other DIMM in Slot 4.
If that works, do some testing. If everything comes out stable, try lowering your timings, one at a time, in reverse order. IE, change the 3-4-4 to 3-4-3, retest, then try 3-3-3, retest, then try 2.5-3-3. If you can get back to the original timings using only the increased voltage, great. If you can't get back to the original timings but it's stable with the higher timings, well, at least it's stable.
could u plz tell that how many partitions u have on ur hardisk .
a tip :-
1 u should install gmaes in a separate partition other than system partition.
2 go to my computer properties and advanced tab there go to performance settiings . in that tab go to set page file .now choose a custom page file size that should be about twice the size of ur ram installed say 400 mb.
3 uninstall any games from system partition or simply do not fill ur system partition to full
