Weird Lag when playing CoD: MW3

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I need some help, I get weird lag when playing cod:mw3. I get killed instantly by non head shots, on non hardcore servers. I watch videos of ppl with my computer specs playing the game in multiplayer, with no lag on max settings. I for some reason have to play on all low graphics settings, and still get instant killed by non head shots, the game itself is very easy, but when your enemy can instant kill you hitting any part of your body its very annoying. I disabled Enable Steam Community In-Game as well. Here are my specs, please help!

Video Card: GTX 260
Memory: 8gb ddr 3 1600
CPU: x4 Phenom 970
Motherboard: Asrock 970 Extreme4
Hard drive: 250gb 7200rpm

Do you have all your drivers installed and up to date? Also, make sure that in your power options in windows, it's set to "high performance" rather than "balanced".

Another thing, especially with the woefully outdated CoD-games-engine, is that it's VERY sensitive to HDD speed. So, if you have an older, slower HDD, that believe it or not may be part of the problem.

I had a 250GB 7200RPM WD caviar I was using a couple years back and my framerate, overall smoothness, and playability went up in many games, not just CoD games, when I switched to RAID 0 WD 1TB blacks.

I would suggest a reinstall of Windows if you're experiencing technical issues in all games. If it's only Call of Duty, then perhaps it could be a plethora of different issues.
