Yeh, I like to play halo pc and doom 3 and nfs most wanted on my computer. all of my games run fine except halo it runs at 18fps. I use a Nvidia Geforce fx5200 and a pentium 4 2.2ghz I was looking at building a new computer but I wanted to see if I could make this one work first.
strange... 18FPS, that's damn slow.. and I never heard such a problem like this one, maybe the Halo (the game) didn't installed properly, or maybe your PC eat too much Ram at the same time.
Try to stop another running program first...
Halo. I think it is time for u to upgrade to a new gfx card. Jst add a gfx card and ur games will run smoothly. Tell us ur budget so we can help u in choosing a gfx card. No need to buy a new pc.
Yeh, but a pentium 4 2.2ghz is rather slow. I was looking at a AMD Athlon FX-55. With a Nvidia 6800gtx I think it was called. Because this comptuer is old and limited with it's 8x AGP bus. I will get a screen of the game and me playing using fraps and you will see the fps in the corner. what I don't under stand is the game seems to run smooth even running at 18fps or sometimes lower.
Do you have Vertical Sync enabled????
dont really know what that Is but I do have another gpx card laying around it is a ati radion 9200SE. Would it help.
I'm looking at building that beast of a system but right now I need to get a working computer till I decide to buy it. I'm not sure if I want to take all that money out on that computer because the money it takes just to buy the processor I could buy a 32" LCD TV, and I perfer the 32" instead of a better computer expecally if there is really nothing wrong with this one.
So, would a ATI radion 9200SE be better then the Nvidia FX5200 or not I don't want to spend time takeing this computer apart it takes to long.
The Radeon 9200SE might be marginally better. I'm not sure how much of an FPS increase you'll see though.
Dude, you said the game runs fine but your fps is low. Why should that bother you if your game runs fine?
It boothers me because the game "SEEMS" to run fine.
I'm annoyed because I get a ping of 67 (average) and I lag sometimes during the game. And I know it isn't the server because I have a ping of 67. The only other option is it's my computer.
Sometimes when I play the game my computers pauses all together witch is weird because when windows has an issue it usally gives you the blue screen of death so im guessing the game has droped completely to 1fps.
