hi guys

i am having a problem with all my gmaes that is m getting low fps even at low resolutions of 1280 x 1024

i have

core i 5 760 2.8 ghz
p7h55v
2gb ram
500 gb hd
gt 460
xigmatec 600 watts psu

and i am using CRT monitor ( sony ) 17" flat supports upto 1280 x 1024

some people say that is because of my crt with lower resolutions which is bottle necking my gtx460 thats why m not getting fps they also say that when you increase your resolution upto 1080p you'll get like 60 fps :( 

but i think i should get high performance and more fps since i play @ very very low resolution

another thing. Isnt it becuse of 2 gb ram???

You definately need 4gb of ram for gaming.

Secondly at 1280x1024, the majority of the load is on your cpu. Overclock your cpu and you should see fps rise.

Honestly having a i5 and a GTX460 with a 17" monitor is a total waste of hardware.

The standard today is 1680x1050 or 1920x1080.

Personally,at that resolution, you should not encounter any problems at all. You have a good CPU,very good GPU. Probably, your RAM is the cause of the bottleneck. What games are you playing anyway? And btw, increasing your resolution to 1080p will only decrease your fps count as it will increase the load of pixels your GPU need to process.

how to see cpu usage before playing games???

by the way i have seen cpu usage in gadget which is showing 40 to 48 % ram load when idle. :(  so, its a ram fault i think.. but if it is ram's?? then why my friend is getting more an more fps in all games with q6600 + 4870, 2gb ram. :(

Tom's hardware has been recommending 4gb as the "sweet spot" for gaming since all the way back to 2007.

If your still running 2gb, well then likely your entire machine is seriously outdated.

There's more factors involved than hardware. Is your friend running the same OS as you? Is your friend running the game in the same DX version as you? If your friend is running XP in DX9, and your running Win7 in DX11, obviously chances are he's going to get more fps.

Amount of RAM shouldn't be a problem, but it might be faulty. Also make sure that the card is seated properly in the PCI-E slot, or try a different slot.

Check the RAM using Windows Memory Diagnostics tool.(Press F8 during boot)

You should be able to notice significant increase in fps count by switching back to DX10. :bounce:

Your right, I know very little about your outdated machine. Maybe you could share your specs with us.

Download the newest drivers for your card. =]

Also, Direct-X 11 runs faster than 9/10/10.1.
Your monitor cannot give you lower fps because it's old. Does your car go slower every year because it's not new?
If I decrease my resolution to yours when I play WOW, with settings at max I get +200 fps vs 35fps @ 1920x1080.

However, if I enable WoW's D-X11, my fps goes up about 10%.

Gentlemen, we're trying to solve a problem here, not create conflict.

2GB of ram is enough for most games.
Some power hungry games require 6GB.

Enough said.

If you are using win7 64 bit, you definitely need 4gb ram.

W7 64 will still run quite happily on 2GB and be able to run games.

That may be true but for the OP's system having the RAM upgrade is necessary. Not as if RAM is expensive.

I see the OP has mentioned DX11 but not whether they are using a 64bit OS.

Maybe your video settings are maxed out and your friend's settings are lower. Can you confirm that both of you are using the same amount of eye candy?
