XP 2800 nforce2 Au13 WD 120GBx2 SB audugy2 512mb corsair xms LL now upgraded to 1GB Radeon 9800 Liteon 52x cdr Pioneer DVD-R
I went and upgraded the ram or should i say my girl upgradede some stuff for me but it makes all the difference in the world.
i like my 9500 its pretty good. good for the money i payed.
Thanks for the help Apocalypse,well this is my answer to what u said : 1. I Don't Like Geforce's, i'd really rather get ATI's I have noticed that where I am (UK) u can get a Radeon 9100 128MB DDR for £60 (around $80) 2. I was testing 60 players on ALL low detail and there wasnt much lag! 3. With ALL high detail I do fine up to around 30-40 players, after that I start lagging quite badly, and that applies for all small maps, like Operation Battleaxe. 4. I play Desert Combat a lot, my computer isnt that bad, its actually quite reasonable, its just the bots, they take up a lot of CPU time. 5. On the net, I can play fine with 64 players on ALL high detail, hardly any lag, its because I have set the bots to use 25% CPU time, and if I make it any lower the bots go all freakish.
Thanks again, Apocalypse_Kid, you are very helpful! :cya: :cya:
Glad I could help. I'm not by any means a GF freak, the equivelant in ATI would be fine, as you say it's the bot CPU time that screws you on single player, but there must be a sweet spot in CPU's that is good for bots but not to expensive. I suspect it's around the AMD 2200+ mark cause I got lots better performance going from a 2000+ to a 2200+, but not much when I went from 1800+ to 2000+. I would go as high in CPU as you can afford for 64 player bot matches.
:cya: :cya: :cya:
I wouldn't mind an upgrade, but for now I can cope with the performance I get, anyway I can also be glad that BF1942 isnt the ONLY game I play (imagine how frustrated I would get by the lag) :uhm:
Hey, Pvt_Zab what time is it over there in the US??? :rolleyes:
