I have problem for playing even Diablo Expansion.
In the game, the graphics lags majorly when there's a crowd. The frame starts to skip and it really sux. I have checked the DSL, video card driver, BIOS driver and memory, all are working fine and up-to-date with the lastest driver. I just don't have a clue why it's performing so slow. I also ran 3dMark 2005 and got a score of 2111 (I wonder if it's already high). Please drop any opinion if you will. Thank you !!
I've got the same issues with a system that I built for my church. We're using an old 30gig HD that only has 2mb cache. I was watching it play video and it was stuttering. Mind you I installed a 6600 (don't need anything TOO fancy) which should run video like a knife through butter. So, what I think I'm gonna' do is get two HDs and RAID 0 'em together. What size? I dunno yet... still lookin...
I'm almost positive it's the HD that's causing the problem... the 5400 RPM spin w/ 2mb cache just isn't enough oomph.
