FPS Problem

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi, I just bought all my parts for my new computer and installed Windows XP Pro and also all the drivers from CDs that came with the parts. Here is my system specs:

AMD Athlon64 4400+ Dual-Core
1Gb Corsair RAM (400Mhz)
Gigabyte GA-K8N-SLI Motherboard
LG DVD Drive
200GB Hard Drive
530 Watts
BFG Geforce 7800 GTX

Well after installing what I just mentioned above, I installed Battlefield 2 and Doom 3 to test out my new rig. I can get 80-90 FPS on Battlefield 2 everything on high and Doom 3 a 60 FPS with everything high (only b/c its set to a maximum of 60 FPS). Well I just have one problem, every 15-20 seconds my framerate would suddenly drop from a super high frame rate to a 20-30 FPS for a few seconds making the experience on the screen feel choppy. Can anyone help me solve this problem?

You need 2 gigs.
To run with everything on high.
The reason it drops is because at that moment its storing the video data onto your pagefile which is on your harddrive thus slowing down your frame rates to dismal speeds.

Overclock the CPU, and that will increase the ram speed aswell. After you do that the gameplay should be a lot better. That cpu starts out at a relatively low speed so it cant provide enough power to the videocard and your frames drop during high action scenes. A quick and easy way to fix this is to change your textures from high to medium. I can run the game on my computer at 1280x1024, 4x AA and everything on high besides textures on medium without any lag. You cant notice a difference (graphics wise) going from high to medium textures either. Really the only way to play the game with high textures is to have 1.5-2 gigs of ram. I mean, an FX57 with SLI 7800GTX's could do it just from raw cpu/gpu power. Most systems need over a gig.
