Hello everyone, i got a problem. while playing games after a while they slow down games include FIFA, romance of the three kingdom XI. Sometimes for playing a while in slow they get on the normal speed themselves. Here are the specs.

Quad core 2.4ghz
mobo dg33fb
nvidia 8600gt 512mb
ram ddr2 2gb

As for specs getting out dated i played the games on the same specs without any problem and this problem just came up

Thanks in advance

Increase the amount of RAM you have in the rig and also change he pagefile size.
I would advise against changing the GPU or upgrading anything, so for the cheapest way , use the RAM road.
Or else....
A new rig is long overdue.... more like on the lines of a quad (you already have it but... newer generations are out) or hexa-core, 8gb of DDR3 and a GPU with DDR5.....

Maybe check some of the temps on the card. Maybe a RAM upgrade would be nice as well.

Are you sure you are going to try to run the DDR3 on your current motherboard? Because at the current moment, it is not going to work. You are going to need to upgrade the board and processor to do so.

Also, what is your power supply?

Before you go and start buying stuff..... especially RAM, you need to make sure it's compatible on the mobo.
A whole list of stuff you're planning on buying would be a better idea since we really can't help you out piece by piece.
First decide:
Are we going to try and solve the slowing down problem or are we going to go for the upgrade process.

Hmm, the card you have doesn't max the games to run smoothly had you tried with medium setting too?

Here is what my upgrade plan is:
RAM Kingston DDR3 4gb
PSU GX 550W
GPU Ati HIS 6850
MOBO ASUS P5G41T M - LX



Doesnt include processor as my budget does not allow me, i believe that upgrading the system will help the performance getting better. Not only for the current game obviously

Thats actually not a bad upgrade path. Nice job!

If you wanted to save some money, I think the Corsair CX500 is cheaper than the GX550.

appreciate your help pal but where i am about to go for the stuff for upgrade they haven't mentioned the one you told on their website, i would ask for this one if they have it. Ati 6850 has the minimum requirement of 500W. Font you think it will affect the GPU ?

Companies usually overstate the power that the graphics card actually needs. I have seen some that can run a HD6850 on a Corsair CX430

That being said, one must have a higher end power supply. I can't recommend enough how imperative a good power supply is. Its kind of the heart of the system. The GX550 is a good power supply, and so is the CX500.

^here is a list of most of the popular power supplies made today and how they stack up against the others. Anything tier 1 and 2 is good, and some in tier 3, like the Corsair CX series.
