Hey all says the new face!
Athlon AMD XP 2500
KT600-A K7FSB 400 ECS
1x256mb Kingmax(both DDR400 PC3200)
40gig 7200 Sata
My problem started when i started upgrading my comp(which ive had now for about 2years). The board, 40 gig Harddrive and 1x256 kingmax mem is the only thing left from my orignal comp, and the rest upgraded from
CPU: 1800 to as above
Memory: 2x256 King DDR400 pc3200 to as above
Graphics: ATI 9200 128mb - fx5700 256mb - as above(big diff)
Sound: Ac97 codec to as above(big dif) :mrgreen:
Now to my problem is game feeling i get from the machine :(
Well basicly it sux!! esp when a game has just started up...
I play mostly online with a asdl 512/128 conneciton and know what lag is!
But what happens most the time is that when playing it feeling as thought someone is squeezing and even squezzed the piping somewhere and jerks all over the place(get short burst of game frezzing). I use a lagometer in some games which give a better indication its not a simple thing to fix with drivers as it has become worse as ive upgraded my G-Cards
I look down especially when my game has loaded and find the hard drive is still very buzy(normal). But it shouldn't effect my gaming performance should it!
I look into task manger and have find when i had my 512mb, virtual would kick in and would have 600 total memory used...Put 768 in and virtual kicks in again running @ 800-900 total usage :mad: Using the same game(Call of duty) diff cards(512 to 768 with fx5700 then 768 to x800pro)
Virtual memory with the fx5700 used about 780 virtual and the x800pro 800-900mb
My machine runs stock clocked not hot and still rocks apart form this small problem
What things can i check to make sure something isn't broken or mismatched(i've check individual memory.. all good)
PS only really got into behind the scenes stuff and have a have a good knowleadge on speed matching and BIOS config... but feel im missing something please help??
