Well i have a friend with a very old computer. It has a Intel E4300 duo core 1.8 processor which is slow....... And recently upgraded to a ATI 6850. But why does Gameplay on that com still run slowly? I heard that mostly games rely on the graphics card now.But when i used that computer.It enters COD 4 with fps like 1. Then spikes for awhile and then runs fine. Is there anyway to solve such spike?
These are minimum specs for cod4 http://www.yougamers.com/news/12705_call_of_duty_4_syst...
so performance is likely to be on the pitiful side, and that 6850 is going to be severely bottlenecked so you/he wont see the performance increase it should bring
list his mobo and we can try to find a processor upgrade maybe, but a new build is more likely imo
Yeah hes planning to for a new built after the sandy bridge and More GPUs released next year.But for now will it also spike in certain games like MW 2 or MOH? Btw does resolution affect the spike?B4 getting the 6850 he was running at a VERY low resolution with not much spike. But now at HD resolution.
sadly OC cant be done in Bios. The CPU temp is already at 50 degree idie. 60 plus full load. So a New CPU cooler is needed. But then again a Good CPU cooler is almost the price of a New INTEL LGA 775 Duo core Processor 2.8
If you want to OC the E4300 without modifying the BIOS, there's a pin mod for FSB and for voltage.
1 for 266 MHZ FSB = 2.4Ghz and 1 for 333 MHZ FSB = 3.0Ghz.
This way you can OC the cpu if you can't change the settings in the BIOS.
