well you opened this thread after you posted in someone elses and we have some info in that thread as well but try and keep in on your thread from here on.. It makes it easier if you stay to one thread (the one you made)



Back to this thread I posted this..

http://www.geekstogo...PC-t109296.html




But it's a 256meg graphic card



256mb dont mean jack if the rest of the card is slow. Just because it has 256mb doesnt mean its fast man, it doesnt work like that. There is much more to a graphics card. It has a gpu (graphics processing unit), it has clock speed it has memory speed, it has pipelines, they have memory which will be ddr,ddr2 or ddr3. Yours has the plain ddr..






call of duty 2 requires a fast video card if you want the settings past low quality without any choppiness...

You have an intel dual core cpu. Have you tried running the game on just one of the cores??

go into the task manager, control alt + delete under processes goto the process for call of duty 2 and right click it. then goto set affinity and uncheck one of the cpu's it shouldnt matter which one. This will force the game to run on just one of your cpu's cores. It will make it run better if you have dual core cpu related issues..

Neither would be much of an upgrade an a 1300 wouldnt really be an upgrade at all, try a 7600GT instead it should be better.

Sorry for jumping in here but I'd advise looking for 'Gainward Golden Sample' cards. The Golden Sample cards are picked for their performance and come with software to 'overclock' them at a safe performance level. As an example I recently bought the Powerpack Ultra/2100 GeForce 6800 128MB. Although the memory on board is small in comparison to similarly priced cards I am running the core clock at 350Mhz as opposed to 325 and the memory clock at 800Mhz as opposed to 700Mhz.

I'm not sure how the prices compare between GBP and USD, I think your current card retails at around $60-70 judging from a quick Google search I did. My new card gives much better performance than my old 5700VE for around £130, if I'd had more money I would have got one with more RAM on it.

I don't know too much about PC hardware, granted but a crowd I regularly game with that assemble custom gaming rigs seem to swear by Gainward.

With regard to your original post on the performance in game, this title is very demanding, it is much safer to opt for performance over quality by going with the recommended settings. I'm having to run in 800 x 600 as my processor (Sempron 2400+) is just too slow to cope, the GFX card and Gig of RAM I have just isn't enough.

Gainward golden samples arent what they used to be, when manufacturing processes were less reliable then yes a hand picked card had advantages but these days they just charge more for what everyone elses cards do just as well. For overclocking of cards XFX, BFG and HIS especially are better than gainward, Gainward a kind of mediocre crowd they cater alot to the GS cards of late.

Most cards come with overclocking software as standard its even built in to the drivers of ATI x1000 card drivers. The higher resolution isnt much of a factor on the CPU its all down to the gfx card really.

From a quick glance this http://www.newegg.co...N82E16814130283 is the best in that list.

Yeah, Evga makes good solid video cards and their prices are nice also. I have an evga and I usually try to stick to that company or either bfg when I build systems.
