    Most likely Cpu is bottlenecking
  2. So i have to buy a new pc if my cpu is bad , ore is there a way how to chek or fix this?
  3. you said you added more ram but didn't tell us what, and you didn't say what you had before. mixing ram, even though they "appear" to be the same could hurt. also, check the mobo booklet and see what slots the ram should be in.

    try resetting cmos. maybe that will set things right.
  4. "intel core duo 2,13 Ghz" < BOTTLENECK. It doesnt even meet the minimum requirements for many modern games, and certainly does not meet the recommended requirements for most modern games. Your power supply also may be a problem, what brand is it? some cheap 530w PSU's perform more like 250w psu's which isnt enough power.
    You will need to upgrade the cpu, motherboard and ram, they no longer make and decent CPU's for that socket. You can get an i3 2100 ($100), B75 motherboard ($60) and 8gig ddr3 ram ($35). that should see you gain some nice performance, although would be good if you could get an i5 over the i3.
  5. i bought DDr2 because my other 2gb rams are DDR2 i went to computer shop they put the rams in. (also before all this story there was interesting thing that my PC could not turn on properly , than i brought coumputer to pc shop and they fixed problem they said that Rams were insered in wrong position.) So they fixed this problem. Also i tried 2 hours ago to put out this new rams and run the game but it was the same .
  6. Powersuply brand Modecom , but if this powersuply would be bad my pc wont run at all , it wont turn on , thanks for your advice to buy those things, but there is a question why UT3 (unreal tournament) such old game 2007 y. is laging on this card , before this card with 8600 gts there was no problem and with this card 660 gtx gigabyte is laging , this is most interesting part fore mee, and some other old games also.
  7. you may have been able to run your old card on that PS but the way the power is distributed won't allow the card to draw enough now.
    what is the PS? and what is the amperage? and how do you have the new card powered?
  8. where can i look what is the amperage? i will put a link of my power supply : http://www.modecom.eu/modecom_premium_530w/premium/power_supplies/power_supply/product/ Modecom Premium 530 power supply.
  9. it's on the lable...
  10. link looks to me like its 35 AMPS on 12V Rail, I also notice that the 3.3V and 5V are on the same rail.
  11. what memory did you have in the machine and what other memory did the "pros" put in?

    do you have the motherboard manual? check to see that the ram is installed in the proper slot for dual channel mode.

    shut down machine. physically pull the ram. what does it say on each stick?

    the old rams are 2x 1 gb and they are in yellow slots , there are 4 slots for rams, in other slot it is red slot there is 1x2 gb ram. On the old rams there is written : 1GB /800 64x8 DDR II (2) On the other ram new one there is written 2GB PC2-6400 CL6. and the pc shop consultants said it is DDR II (2) i think that the motherboard is manual .
  16. and what happens when yo run the 2 old modules together? ( without the new ram)

  19. you could reinstall drivers.

    i reinstalled drivers many times, i tried with new drivers , old drivers but nothing helpes , i think that with older drivers games were running better than with new one ... . What does it mean reset cmos? what does this word mean (cmos) my english is not so good sory .
