Trouble playin ghost recon advanced warfighter with AMD Athlon™ 64 X2 5200 Dual-

someone told me that my system is running both cpus during game play and this conflicts and slows the mouse movements. Is this true, and if it is what can do to fix this. According to my specs i should be able to play most games.

  1. If true, why are we moving to multi core CPUs? Nobody would buy them if this was the case.

    Well, that would depend on your specs. Maybe you should try to list it down first and see if your claim is valid.
  3. Not really. GRAW one doesn't call for anything exotic. A moderate P4 (2.4GHz?), 1GB of ram, and a 9800pro/6600GT for minimum setttings. If your playing at 1024x768, you should be good. Any decent system from up to 3-4 years ago should handle it just fine.
  4. I can play any Halo game but not GRAW, it works but the mouse doesn't react as fast as it should. A young man at the local video game store suggested that the game was causing my Duo CPU's to compete with each other. This cause a conflict and it caused the mouse to react slow. He said that there was a way to change the settings so that the game would run better. Someone had ask for my spec, so here they are:

  5. Your CPU is fine but your GPU is rubbish, the young man at the local store is a twazzock.
  6. Agreed. Get a real GPU, and replay all your games. Make sure you have a PCIe slot and PSU that can handle it.

    No wonder you're having problems with GRAW.

    Solution: Get a better video card for better gaming performance/experience.
  8. what card do you guys recommend for my system?

    What do you recommend for a new card?
  10. A 9600GT or a HD4770 should be enough and won't break the bank either.
  11. Thanks I'll see if i can get one
