Hey guys, recently I have noticed a bit lower fps at the games I play. I thought it is just a normal thing cause my pc had not been formated nor cleaned outta the dust for a long period of time. I reformatted the computer but the problem prevailed.
My settings are:
Asus P5Q pro
norton epsilon 600w
noctua cpu cooler+ 2 noctua fans
My fps 100-300 but with more people at once it drops to about 50-60.
For example friend of mine has got e3200 and 1950pro and it doesn't drop bellow 150...
I tried several systems (xp/vista, currently on 7 64-bit)
Turned speed step off
cleaned the pc from the dust (well there is still some left but I don't think much)
tried the newest drivers (both w/ or w/o CCC) , even older ones
During stress test GPU load is about 95% (normal), during cs:s or other game it is like this: 0% 0% 0% 17% 0% 0% 0% 0% 32% 0% 0% ... etc
To have the regular temeprature I used to have , about 80C , it is enough to have my GPU fan at 23% (pretty low right?), when I turn it at 50%, GPU temeprature drops to 45C, with only 35% it doesn't get above 55C
It honestly sounds like bad drivers. There's no reason you can't game with max settings. Maybe a reformat is necessary.
I have reformatted like 5times already (using vistas, 7s, xps ) The only system it worked good was a bugged xp 32bit update (was just an update, dunno how did I manage to install it, I installed it on vista version) I just forgot to activate it. When the 30 days passed, I couldn't activate it anyhow, was bugged. The weird thing is that system that worked was the only 32bit I have tried, could the problem be there?
I've seen the exactly same problem in the past. 100FPS while alone on map , 40-60 FPS when near other players. I though it's the video-card too , but it turned out to be the processor ( a old celeron tho ). I can't tell you that in your case might be the same , but maybe you should check it.
Well is the 30 fps to horrible for you to play????? Thats what I play at on bf2 and seems like 30-35 is the sweet spot for fps.
Do you have any startups running. Start-run-msconfig-startup-. Only 3-5 things running. Run defrag, scandisk, and everthing you can think of.
You have all your drivers updated etc?
512mbs of ram is not enough for online games!!!! This probably is most of it!!!! When I had a 1 gig of ram this was not enough. 1.5-2gigs is enough for right now!...............
About my spelling, If you say anything about it im gonna hunt your nerdy english aniel retentive arrrssse down and beat the elcrapo right out of you!!!!
I came to this planet to chew bubblegum and kick ass! And I am all out of gum!
