I'm trying to achieve a higher frame rate in a game I'm playing. I reach 30 frames on max, but I don't like being anywhere under 60.
What part of my PC should I upgrade to get a higher frame rate and without lowering any of the graphic settings on this game?
Recommended for this game:
• OS: Windows 7 or Vista
• CPU: AMD Athlon 64 x2 6000+ or INTEL Core2 Duo E6750
• RAM: 4 GB or greater
• GPU: ATI Radeon HD 3870 or NVidia Geforce 8800GT
What I have:
Windows 7 Ultimate
AMD Phenom II x4
6.00 GBz RAM
I've also tried overclocking my GPU. Didn't have an affect on frame rate.
I second esrever your GPU is weak and maybe even below the recommended. The Phenom II X4 is about 3 times as powerful as the X2 6000+. I suggest an AMD HD7770 upgrade when it launches in the next 2 months. If you have the cash the 7850 should launch next month.
Now you could try lowering the terrain draw distances as that makes a huge difference in many MMO's.
