I feel like I need to upgrade my ECS P4s5A+ cause its 4x AGP and my P4 is only cranking 1.7 ghz at 400mhz FSB, Mem is 512k pc 3200 at 400Mhz Got an ATI 9500 vid card w/64 mb of mem.

12 frames per second on AA is typical and headshots are followed by my certain death in a spray of lead from the opponent. My honor is a hard won 23 and I finished E & E at 2 FPS, or frames/second. I have T-1 cable at 2.8 Mb/second down and 500 k up so that ain't the problem. All in all it's embarrassing so you got to Pay to Play.

I figure going to an 8x mobo and a 2.8 ghz processor (Prescott) will solve the problems...or is the Direct X 9.1 ATI 9500 the source of my trouble? I Like Intel 875 or Abit equal and clock to 3.2. ATI 9600 is a good deal now. Any suggestions and no, I don't want a $1000 Processor etc.etc. Price is important espccially when you have to upgrade every 2 years.

Any comments would be apreciated because I play the German wanabes early AM and I have some scores to settle.

You can play quite well with 12 fps, I frequently do, and my fr is 2.94, and I am not one who worries about it. I could easily do better if I didn't tend to stand out in the open. Play more maps like Bridge SE, my fr is almost 11 on that map.

Running the 2.8 E at 3200, Water cooled, and the 9800 Pro at 417/371 corsair 3500 twin, on an ATI Max 2. Players die now unless they hack. Mark 04 6500-7000 depending how tight I crank it. Sorry to say it's a whole different game. Still the hacks really spoil it for everyone playing legally.

Celeron is´nt a fast , gamer cpu! this cpu have no big L2 cache (most with only 256kb,or 512) how fast he is,with 2 ghz or 3 ghz...Celeron REALLY SUX! fast harddisc´s (min. 7200rpm), fast cpu (+2ghz) , really fast grafic (128mb ddr ram or more) , ram (minimum of 512mb or higher)..> :bows: Ameria´s Army is a highend game (now) and u need a POWERFULL PC to play this with enought framerate and without lags or delay! :nodding: ! FACT ! [color=red]end & off[/color]
