Which is my thought. Something is using the HD that the game is on. Ever torrent to the same drive where the game your playing is located? Same thing happens. I couldn't figure out why my fps in WoW were dropping to 1-2 ocassionaly when I was playing. Turns out I left Azeurus open dl'ing the new NIN album. DOH! It was writing and moving files on the HD where the game was and I'd drop FPS like a mofo

I ran UT2004 Perfectly on max settings on the following rig
AMD Athalon 64 3000+ (Socket 754)
1GB DDR PC333 (I think I could be wrong about the speed)
PNY GeForce 7600 AGP.
Im sorry. but i once again dissagree. I dont have the game on here right now. But i remember it using like 1200mb

There's no way. The standard at the time was 512. Remember, this game is based off of an engine that's now 5 years old (when one gig of ram WASN'T standard). There's no way that the game requires THAT much ram. WoW doesn't even take that much ram. I can believe UT3 taking it but there's no way on the Unreal 2k3 engine.

5 years ago the programs you ran in the background didn't take up as much ram either Antivirus, firewall, etc. Stuff today tends to be very bogged down for no reason.

Which is why I suggested HD access..... The problem isn't the game or his system, it's whats running on the OS. He doesn't need more ram. I guarantee you, he can run this game on windows xp with maxed out settings and his current rig.

But isn't it easier to just buy a stick of ram than to sit and sift through a bunch of junk and possibly have to find replacements for the programs he needs? Its not like its going to cost him more than $10 if he looks well enough

Thats where preference comes in. I prefer to go through windows and disable all the crap I don't need or us Hijack This to find out what exactly is starting on my system. No point in loading crap I don't need now is there? Plus it improves my system performance all around instead of just going around the problem and leaving it.

Think of this with a business perspective.

You can spend up to 2 hours reconfiguring your PC for the best performance possible. Uninstalling unused programs, going through your registry and system files, defraging your drives, etc. Maybe even reformat and reinstall.

Or you can spend $10 on a stick of ram, and if it doesn't help you can return it and lose nothing but maybe 10 minutes of your time.

Keep in mind, this is all JUST for one single game. If his computer was getting slow with everything then yes its absolutely a good idea. But all that effort for just one game?

Well its the difference of paying 28 dollars (S+H included or gas prices depending on where you live) for another gig, or being completely free and optimizing your system for not only one game but performance all around. From a business perspective it might take longer to go out and get the RAM or order it and have it shipped then it would to clean the system. I'm not arguing that your idea won't work. But before he goes and buys more ram, I'd like to know it wasn't some Anti Virus program scanning his hard drive and the additional ram and shipping and handeling or gas money is now gone to waste.
