I cant get a decent 30 FPS(at 1024x768,32,high detail settings)..I'm facing this problem with all the new games on my P4 2.4c,256 MB DDR RAM,GeForce FX 5200 128 MB,80 GB HD..I've defragmented my HD,turned off vsync,AA,AF and did everything I can to improve my performance... could someone please tell me where the bottleneck could be...is it the RAM ? Does my framerate improve if I upgrade to 512 MB ? plz help
Well its both. Your RAM starved with your setup. I run a gig for gaming. 512 of some good RAM would be a minimum with what your running. 5200 isn't much of a vid card, really. The RAM will help the vid card though.
Dazzle them with Brilliance, or Baffle them with BS! :wink:
Thanks RCPilot !!
So if I upgrade my RAM to 512 MB DDR,I'll get more than 30 FPS..right ?..yes the fx 5200 is a crappy card..but I cant just dump it(only 4 months since I've bought)...BTW,is 512 enough or should I go for 1 GB...does too much RAM hurt ?
