First Post. OC Athlon II X2 220

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I'm new to this site.
I bought a new computer recently just for SC2, unfortunately the performance on SC2 is still crap.
I'm wondering what I can do to increase my FPS on SC2 sufficiently, if I have to overclock some stuff, I'm willing. I just don't know how.

My graphics card and/or RAM might be the problem too. Anyways here are my specs:

GFX: NVIDIA Geforce 6150SE 896MB
Processor: AMD Athlon II X2 220, 2.80ghz
Powersupply: not sure i think 400watt
RAM: 2GB (1.75 usable) 1333mhz
OS: Windows 7 home premium 64bit.

Thanks guys,

~ Hyung-Jae

6150se is an integrated gpu and pure crap. Buy a 5770 or something, but make sure you have a 450 or higher psu.

It will be so much faster, you will have no idea what happened.

Seriously. I upgraded my dad's computer from a 7100 to a 9600 GSO 512 that I had laying around (still a fairly poor card), and it screamed compared to what it used to be.

Pick up a 5770 and you will very happy.

You should probably get something like this at $70ish, or this, at $115ish.

I'd go for the 5770, since it can play most games easily at higher settings, but the 5670 is best if you're on a pretty constricting budget.

Definitely do not get a 5450 for any gaming. Buy a used 8800gt or 9600gt for a similar price. They are much better!

Honestly, for $20 more, OP could get a 5670. It's a good bit faster than the 9600 GT, and it's new!
