Hi All
Hope someone can help
i seem to have problems with driving games running on my pc i have tried to play nfsu2 and juiced but both are too slow and wont run anywhere near right i have run toca ok and i have doom 3 and played half life 2 ok etc, i would have thought fx 5200 would run juiced etc i was wondering if ram or cpu would be the prob.
But i dont understand why doom 3 etc scroll fine but nfs2 etc wont nfs 1 was ok tho
i've got 512 ram and athlon 1700 cpu geoforce fxf 5200 graphics card, i've tried changing game options to lower settings and shutting down all non essential progs etc but still no good

Hello gazzagolf and welcome to Geeks To Go!

A few things you could try would be to turn off anti-aliasing and anisotropic filtering and use bilinear filtering instead of trilinear.
Also update all your hardware drivers, defrag the hard drive, close all unnecessary background tasks including anti-virus.

The anti-aliasing/anisotropic/bilinear/trilinear filtering options are normally in the display options of the game.

If you post your PC specs we can help you find the correct drivers for your hardware.
