Hi. I've been playing quite a few games with the following rig:
Mobo: Asus P5Q Pro Graphics Card: ATI Radeon HD4850 512MB DDR 2 Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 3.00GHz Memory: OCZ ReaperX HPC 2 x 2048 MB DDR2 / Bus 1066 MHz / PC2-8500 / CL 5-5-5-18 Case: Antec Sonata III 500 Power Supply: 500W Screen: Samsung SyncMaster T220 22" LCD / 1680x1050
The problem is that in a couple of games, for exemple Trackmania Nations and Call of Duty World at War, as soon as there is a lot of vegetation (trees, grass, ...) the game slows right down and becomes unplayable. In CoD WaW, the FPS, which are on average at about 50, go down to about 15.
I'm guessing that the Graphics Card is responsible for this problem although I'm not sure... Is this a known problem ? And is it common among ATI cards ?
