New Stuff For My Comp??

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
the only thing i care about is performance in CS:S. i have posted about watercooling and overclocking with my current ram. After the reply that my ram might be able to handle a good overclock, im wondering if i want OCZ still. I was going to get the OCZ plat 2 dual channel kit. It would be double my ram as well as fast ram. But maybe i dont need it if i ahve to losen the timings anyway? if i was going to spend money on a new case/ram/cooling/PSU(which i know i need) would that even be smart? what would the best upgrade for Source be? im guessing some might say vid card? mines overclocked to 430core/365mem. my FPS usually stays around 80, i use a config and on FPS test i get 110-115 or so. But if im demoing and a lot is going on, i can drop down to 40s, and chop pretty bad at times. My brothers comp AMD 64 3000+/512 ram/x600pro has the same problem. we can get 150 FPS constant if nothign is going on easy but the droping of frames is what im trying to get rid of. Thanks guys..

I would start buy getting a new PSU, you dont want to feed poor power to your key components, expecially if you start OCing with that pressy. I think that it is the servers fault that your frames are dropping that low, i mean, you have a solid system that is easly could get you 100+ FPS in source...

really? because both me and my brothers does it and his is newer than mine. we are far from having 100 constant and thats WITH all low settings and a user FPS config. we have a boosted velocity 100tick server, we have looked at many servers. it does it on all of them and if i got 100 constant, my life would be complete lol. Im pretty into the computers, i never have anythign extra running and i keep them both up very well. idk why i get such bad performance on some maps. i think im going to go ocz modstream PSU that a decent choice?

Yes, OCZ RAM in Dual channel (1GB) will be the best upgrade you can buy now. Then get a decent PSU with at least 400 watts and 25 amps on the +12v rail.

kk i think ill do both, OCZ ram and PSU. do you think the same for my brothers computer as well? would that be the best ram/price to get for both of them?

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817182012 thats cheap, is it worth it to get a nice one or should i go cheap?

Once you get everything working properly... that card can run CSS on all high, 1280X960, 4Xaa 2Xaf and get 45-80 fps in large battles. The 9800pro was made for CSS!
