bf2 and a evga 7800gt - Page 2

post #11 of 22
I score over 9000 in 3dmark 05 and I'm still choppy in BF2 because I only have one gig of ram.

I will just repeat what everyone else has been saying, you need 2 gigs to run BF2 maxed out...

ok, seems like the ram is definitely the problem. next question: presently i have 2x512, how much of a difference is 2x1 gb gonna be compared to 4x512? it would be a lot easier for me just to get 2 more 512 sticks, but if its gonna improve performance a lot i guess i could sell my 2x512 and buy 2x1 gb sticks.

anybody got an opinion about 4x512 vs 2x1 gb?

BF2 will need 2GB to run everything maxed out and run smoothly...i know thta Mr.Mumbles had some trouble with that with 1GB and a 7800GT....then he got another 1GB stick and it works awsome now

I will persoanlly go 2x1GB but you'll be fine with 4x512 sticks but you cannot change it from 2T to 1T using a four channels, I forget the reason why but i think it has something to do from pulling from all the Channels and not being stable, it's possbile but you need single sided RAM?? (someone correct me if Im wrong) . If you can get 2x1GB of RAM go for it, but make sure you get the same exact timings as the RAM you currently have if you go 2x512 route, it might suffer a little bit but it will still play BF2 on High Settings

You could actually go with 1 more stick of 512 and be ok and not jumping to 2GB. So if you're really strapped jsut get 1 more stick and you'll be good to go

It's your Command Rate...what specificly is it, I'm not sure. All I know is 1T is faster than 2T but 2T is more stable once you start OC'ing the hell out of it

You change all this in your DIMM settings, or where ever your RAM timings are. Some BIOS' don't offer you to change your command rate, depends on the board you're using

yea, i know nothing about changing any of the ram settings and actually i havent changed a factory setting w/ any of my hardware. but, if i get 2 more sticks of the exact same ram w/ the same timings should it be fine and require no tweaking?
