why cant I run farcry 2 without masive lag

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hello all,

I got farcry 2 yesterday, and even on all the lowest settings I still can not run farcry 2 without massive lag and shutters. I get about 10-15fps constant and freezes. I updated all drivers. ran virus scan, reg scan. spyware scan. and still no change. my system is:

AMD Athlon 64 x2 dual core 5200+ (runs at 2.71ghz)
2GB of ram
ATI Radeon HD 2600pro
runing windows XP x64

Any help will be appreciated thx.

games I run with no problems:
assasins creed
call of duty 4
The Lord of the Rings - Conquest
GRAW 2

If you dont figure it out dont worry about it cause the game is terrible. I would assume its your GPU though.

Jesus, pick up a recertified EVGA 9800gtx+ for 130 dollars at newegg and you wont have any problems running games for a loooong time. But the problem definitely is your HD2600.

Get a 4830 from the egg and you won't have that problem anymore.

The 2600 sucks. Get a new graphics card if you want to play anything recent at decent settings.

I could play FC2 on my old 7600GS (PCI-E) with a single core Athlon 64 @ 2.4GHz and 1GB of RAM..

On Medium @ 800 x 600 with no lag

FC2 is a complete and utter failure. However if you're really desperate then get a better GPU as others stated.

I got FC2 with my new 9800GTX+ and before I got my new power supply in my buddy started to play it on his system.After hearing from him how bad the game was and then going over and giving it a try myself I would not worry about it.I agree with the above posts about you GPU.My opinion is to upgrade you GPU if you have to play this game.I just wasent impressed with the game nor was my buddy.Your call.
