  1. hi my name is angel and i have a problemou i cant seem to fix.

    q9550 2.6 oc to 3.4 steady
    i780 sli mobo
    6g ram ddr2 800
    gtx 260 core 16 oc to 675/1455/1152/40
    aftermarket fan my cpu temp never goes higher than 49 on stress load! 34idle

    win 7 64 ultimate

    nvidia 191.07

    i start playing cod mw 2 on mp and for a a stage or maybe for two stages i'm steady at 60fps never a hick up. but then suddenly it drops to 40 - 46 fps and it stays there. now if i restart the PC then it goes back to been fine for a bit and then boom.. fps drop again. all other games run perfect. im downloading now the beta drivers from nvidia 195 and see how that goes.. any suggestions or tweaks on cfg anything you guys think might help?

    thanks!
     
  2. im running my nivida 7950 gx2 with amd athlon x2 5600+ and twin corsair 2gb ram.
    Multiplayer was fine but lately all the soldiers are just black with no colour/texture just like shadows running around.
    anyone know why?
     
  3. My GeForce 8400 GS 512MB can play COD6 but a litlle laggish when set AA x4 sometimes it will hang at there a while Do anybody know any trick to make my graphic card more powerfull for gaming

    Wow a GeForce 8400 GS, that is impressive, that is practically integrated graphics! There is no real trick to making that card faster and honestly I have no idea how you are playing CoD6 with it at all. I would disable AA all together and set every other visual quality setting to its lowest possible value.

    These guys don't know what they're missing out playing this aesthetically beautiful game on a budget card.....

    Then again, I'm still sorely disappointed by the lack of dedicated servers.

    Playing on my shining new GTS260... at least until BC2 is released.

    Yeah they stuffed Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, I got my money back ;)

    I don't want to know the game, waiting for something better to come along, something that has the option to run a dedicated server.

    BF:BC2 is that option, and its cheaper than MW2 @ US$49.99 on Steam as pre-order, with instant access to beta.

    A good deal if you ask me, although I'd be waiting till this Friday before I put my purchase through.
     
  8. Can call of duty run with this card: Intel GMA 4500M?

  10. i have an x1650 pro vid card wit 1g ram and pentium 4 proccessor for some reason rundown, sub base, underpass, terminal, and derail dont work. When the loading map screen comes up after half way of loading, the screen brightness increases and it freezes. wat do i do? i used the msconfig to stop all the services and startup other than steam. As well as sometimes when im playing on afghan i get these black squares that on the screen that cover up the crosshairs and other details on the map
