Is 46fps on avrg with a C ranking on Mafia II good enough to play it on?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 


On my old computer I just installed it and it said a C ranking isn't bad and that the game should run pretty good at 46 fps. I don't want to lower the graphics anymore even though he is on a crt monitor. That game takes a bit of power to run, I feel that bulletstorm runs nicer on his computer.

I have the game settings set at medium graphics and resolution at 1024 x 768 on his crt monitor. I have something set on 2x and I think I have aa or whatever its called off because it takes too many fps away. And I definitely don't have physx on at all.


His computer that was my old computer at one time, until I basically passed it over since I'm not using it.

Amd Athlon x2 250 3.01ghz
8800gts 320mb card
2gigs of ram
Windows 7 64-bit


Bulletstorm runs great on his computer tho, I guess that game was greatly optimized or is the unreal engine just that easy for almost anybodys computer to run? I have that game set at like 1280x1024 on his crt monitor with all graphics on high except for post something because when I set that on high it starts making weird shadow glitches so I left that one on medium setting.

I left vsync on because since its a weaker pc its not going to really notice much fps gain with it off atleast I don't think it did because when I shut it off it felt like it ran the same.


He isn't even home and doesn't even know I set up a computer up for him. He likes to game but he is used to gaming with old technology like ps2 and xbox 1. I think when he comes home this weekend he'll love that I installed 2 games on his computer for now. I think bulletstorm and mafia 2 are fairly decent games to have some fun with.

I played with a "D" Ranking and 29.5~ FPS in the benchmark.

Set his resolution to 1280x1024 in Mafia II.

You sure 29.5 fps is decent in that game? Seems like most games run alot smoother at fps much higher than 30fps now adays.

You were right I set the resolutions at 1280x1024, and even tho its not running at 46fps I think its running on avrg like 35fps now or something around there I didn't run the full test but the game does seem to be running fluidly. I guess I shouldn't take that benchmark tool so serious. I don't notice any slowdowns like it grades my cpu and gpu. And even tho its a crt monitor I could tell the graphics quality difference between 1280x1024 and the lower 1024 resolution.

I played this game on an 8800gts 640 with a c2d @ 3.2ghz. Game was great. Just play it. High framerates don't make a game better.
