Socket AM2 AMD 6000+ Load Problems

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Alright

Just because I have COD4 Installing it is always atleast 40% in CPU Usage. The only thing I could imagine bottle necking my computer is my Graphics card *nvidia 6200 OC PCI*. But I remember it going faster than this and not being at such a high load.

I have a 500W psu
2 Hard drives (1 Sata the other that other plug >.< I forgot the name)

1GB of ram

and its cooled pretty well the heat is at 42*C but is usually around 38*C

2GB Is virtually essential!!!! And your card can't handle cod4, min specs requires a 6800 gt.

Yeah I know what the min requirements are for COD but I play with everything on low and it runs playable I suppose but 2 GB is essential for a dual core or just for games becuase its not only in gameplay its just lets say on firefox and it would be at 75% now. I tried overclocking it but my graphics card is bottle necking my pc as it as and an overclock on the cpu would only make it run slower in my opinion am I correct?

Well it could be psu problems aswell, but I'd suggest get another gig of ram and wait for those 8800 gt's.

How can it be the Psu?


I am going to get another gig in about a week so yeah. I wont get the 8800 until about next month if I'm lucky.

Well, give your PSU specs, how many watts, and how many amps on the +12V rail?
