I have a problem, I am playing a simple graphics game, "Counter-strike 1.6" and I can't stay at a constant 99 fps. I'm not sure if it is my hardware because I thought what I had was good enough for several games. Let me know what you guys think, here are my specs.
MOBO - GA-K8N Pro-SLI
CPU - AMD Athlon 64 x2 4200+
GPU - BFG Geforce Nvidia 9800 GT
2gb DDR Memory
450 Power Watt Supply
Well what frame rates are you getting?
Naturally its not always gonna stay so high, being in a open area it has to render more things, dropping framerates.
Also i believe the cmd is "cl_maxfps" Whats your setting for that?
Your gpu is good enough to run games at a high FPS, but your problem lies with the mobo and your cpu bottlenecking. It seems your mobo is only compatible with ddr 400, which isn't that fast as compared to ddr2 or ddr3. If you have the dough go to newegg and get yourself some upgrades. You can find package deals as well to help out your issue.
So I've been doing some research and I was wondering if you could let me know what you think about the MOBO, CPU, and MEMORY i'm probably going to get, and to see if it would match up ok. Also since I already bought the extra 9800 GT I will still use them.
