Hi, I was wondering how i would get higher frame rate because i have an ok GFX card but i only get about 40fps in games. my system specs: AMD Athlon XP 2400+ (o'c to a 2600+), 512mb PC3200 Crucial and a 256mb PC2700 stick of RAM, Saphhire Radeon X700 Pro 256mb. I sometimes get a frame rate of like 11 which is pissing me off cause my GFX card suppose to be better than that any1 got any answers on how to get higher frame rate??

Thanks,

Kurt

Try dropping your anti alising and filtering, go into ATI catalys cotrol centre click view>advanced>3D uncheck all the boxes which say "let the aplication decide" and put the sliders all the way left so that they are in the performance section and not quality. You may also want to try your in game settings usualy under the Video tab within the games options and drop the quality of the graphics.

well the pc1700 is worrying me
that means your ram is running at 200Mhz when running two sticks of different speeds (PC3200, PC2700) your whole system will underclock itself to run at the slowest speed thats where your problem is. but also the system specs you listed was saying that it was running at PC1700 which is extreamly slow 200mhz to be exact
replace your ram by getting rid of the PC2700 and replacing it with another stick of PC3200 would greatly increase your performance what size you by is up to you but the best thing would be just to buy another 512 stick



could you please go into your bios and see what speed it says its running at?

Ok, I took the 256mb out and I set the RAM speed in BIOS to DDR 400 but when i went on everest again it said it was PC2200 which I thought strange as the only stick in there is PC3200 nothing else any ideas?

thanks,

well according to the manufacturers website your fsb is a maximum 333mhz so you will never get the full 400MHz that you are after.

but pc2200 sounds weird do they even make pc2200 i havent herd of it but i could be wrong in everest what speed is it reading? pc3200 equates to what speed?
