  1. Please list your entire system spec

    Your CPU is alittle on the weak side to be honest and depending on your OS, 2GB of RAM isnt alot.

    Do you play those games at max? with AA?
  2. no AA
    i play on max settings

    i will have a extra 2 gig next week
  3. When do you experience the "lag"? As soon as the game starts? 20minutes in? All the time? At random intervals?
    Is your lag a stutter, or extended periods of lower fps?
    What OS are you running?
    What videocard did you replace?
    What is your PSU?
    When was the last time you defragged your HDD, or performed a clean install of your OS?
    There can be few quite a few causes to investigate when diagnosing underperforming hardware. We need more information before anyone can give an earnest diagnosis or suggestion.
  4. Ok, come back and tell us how the extra ram effects your performance after your uprgade. Good luck!
  5. ......I asked for your full system spec....

    I need to know:

    Your motherboard
    graphics card
    processor
    RAM
    powersupply
    hardrive
    case
  6. If it is a lack of ram, no amount of cadjoeling will solve the issue. I think it would be best to wait and see how the upgrade goes.
  7. You didnt give us alot to work with, all of JofaMang's questions are important

  10. Do you experience lag while playing online only? what if you play single player? Do you experience it then? How are you connecting to the internet and what speed? Also, how do you connect to your router or modem? cable or wireless?

    And no shoe size :( . I can't help you.
  13. i didnt play mutiplayer still
  14. hehehe
    shoe size - 10
  15. while playing the game like LD 2 i have slight stucks but then continues well.
    same in Cod Mw2
  16. Download FRAPS and game while FRAPS is active. If the slight stucks match with a drop in FPS below 30 then we will know more about your problem
  17. That is stutter. In my experience, stutter is generally related to system or graphics memory, or hard drive transfer rates. I think a wait and see approach with the memory ugprade would be the most efficient route to take. No point in metaphorically ripping apart your computer if the memory upgrade solves your ills.
  18. i got it solved i have been running an unwanted program to boost computer speed.
    it actually slowed mine down

    with unwanted program - 23-28 fps
    without unwanted program - 30-34 fps

    thx to all who helped me

    and after i got the 4 gig ram i get around 36 fps now really cool!

    and i plan to upgrade me processor to quad
  19. Great to hear! Enjoy~
