Im having a huge problem... I just got new graphic card its Hercules 3d Prophet 9700 pro agp. And im having some problems in games that this card should run them nicely. When i play some games like BF2, Guitar hero 3, League of Legends on low, im getting some huge fps spikes from 60 to 3-4.. Then goes like that for 10-20 sec and then gets back to normal.... I have latest graphic drivers and everything.
Here are my specs:
Microsoft Windows XP Professional 32-bit SP3
AMD Sempron 2800+
Palermo 90nm Technology
1.00 GB Single-Channel DDR @ 154MHz (2.5-3-3-7)
ASUSTeK Computer INC. K8U-X (CPU 1) 32 °C
Default Monitor (1024x768@60Hz)
128MB (256-bit) RADEON 9700 PRO Family (Microsoft Corporation) (ATI)
149GB WDC WD1600AAJS-0 SCSI Disk Device (SCSI) 34 °C
DTSOFT Virtual CdRom Device
SoundMAX Integrated Digital Audio
Brett raises a valid point, your card is kind of ancient, either way the minimum requirements for your games are as follows:
League of Legends - ANY Direct X 9.0 Card
Battlefield 3- FX-5700 or Radeon 9500 (you have the 9700)
Guitar Hero 3 - Geforce 7600 or Ati X800
Technically you have met the minimum requirements to run those games which is why you can play them. Your processor is also more than enough for those games. Now relating back to what Brett said, if you were to play Battlefield 3 or Skyrim then your computer will be annihilated by those modern games. If you plan on gaming in the future then do consider a serious upgrade
Edit: Just to let you guys know, I got the system requirements from these sites
