Hi, as I haven´t got too many time here, i don´t know if this is the correct place to post this...

In all games I got, after some seconds of playing, the FPS count dicreases a lot, and after some few minutes it returns to normal parameters. Then, same thing happen again, and again, and again...

I haven´t got a good graphic card, and 512 MB of memory, in some old games, the FPS problem don´t affect me too much, but in games like SWBF , Lego Star Wars and rfactor, i got normaly 40-50 FPS, and with this problem the FPS count goes to 10-15 in those periods...

This didn´t let me play well the games, so pls if anyone can help, here is your turn...

Do you have a lot of other things going in the background while you're gaming?

Try playing at a lower resolution. What I think is happening is that your GPU is running out of RAM, so it's taking the system's memory, which is a lot slower.

A few things:

  1. What are your systems specs?
  2. Decrease your games video settings and see if that helps.
  3. If you have an nVidia card with the nVidia control panel, turn on it's OC'ing settings and see if that helps any.

I can already see a problem with what you have. 512MB ain't shit these days. Thats one chip in my fail desktop that's collecting dust in my closet (and it has 2GB). Upgrade to 1GB and possibly get your hands on a "good" graphics card. If you really want some improvement, put 2GB of RAM (4 x 512MB chips) in your computer and get a mid-range to top of the line graphics card. You'll see a pretty good increase in performance. BUT!!! If you don't want to spend any money on getting a boost, see how many programs are running in the background. I'm sure other members here will have better ways, but the way I do it works for what I do. What you can do, is close any unnecessary programs that are running in the background (i.e. anti-virus programs, anti-spyware, additional firewalls, update systems, etc. etc.) and/or closing some processes (via ctrl + alt + delete). That'll free up some system memory which would improve gaming performance a slight bit as it would allow the game to use more memory to load textures, sprites, characters, animations, and stuff like that. Sooo....to summarize:

  1. Close unnecessary programs that are running before you start playing
  2. Shutdown some processes via the task manager that you KNOW THAT you do not need (shutting down the wrong one can render the system inoperable. i.e. explorer.exe. Shut that down, and everything on the screen goes bye bye. A reboot'll fix it...lol).
  3. Upgrade your RAM to atleast 1GB if not 2GB
  4. Upgrade your graphics card to 8 series if not a 9 series (or ATi's equivelant)
  5. Take programs off of the computers startup list (which would also remove some processes as well as programs running in the background)
  6. This won't increase FPS or stuff like that, but it'll free up disk space and increase disk performance. Run the disk cleanup utility along with a defrag on your hard drives.

Hopefully this helps. Oh, and check your drivers. That might help a tiny bit.

Thanks, i already know that i got to bought some few things, until now i got money for a NVIDIA GFORCE 8600GT 512MB+1GB of RAM.

About PC Specs, i got a Intel Pentium D CPU 266GHz; Intel 82865G Graphics Controler (68 MB); 512 MB of RAM...

And, about the games I play all in 640x480 or minimal resolution, always with graphics settings "low"...

LAWLZ!!!! Your onboard graphics is what your problem is. 68MB onboard = shit. You need an addon card and a 8600Gt is more than enough. Lol...I can't stop laughing. HAHAHA!!!!1! Sorry...I'll stop now.

Onboard video and minimal memory = bad for gaming. Yeah, I'd say you need an upgrade or whole new PC.

I think you will be throwing good money after bad by updating your ram and graphics card. Save your money for now and waituntil you can afford a new motherboard and cpu as well. Your current one running at 266ghz is very old and will struggle with most basic of modern tasks. I am pretty sure you could pick up something from a site like ebay for a good price even if its a 1 ghz the diffrence to you would be amazing.

You need a third party graphics card. The Intel Graphics Accelerator is a total joke as far as gaming. Get a decent graphics card by either nVidia or ATi.

First off, we need to know, does your motherboard have AGP or PCI-Express slots?

The easy way to find out the answer to the above question is to find out what motherboard you have. If you have them, go find all the manuals that came with the computer you have, and give us the model off the motherboard manual. If you don't have them download Everest and copy the motherboard information from that.
