  1. Hello there , i recently posted a topic about me being unable to get good frames on Bioshock and other recent titles... most people i have asked told me that my problem is my CPU (PentiumD 2.8GHZ) which is not suited for some of the new games that are coming out..

    here are my spec's
    Pentium D 2.8ghz
    1GB DDR2
    Ati X1950 Pro -DDR3 256mb,256bit PCI-E
    some Intel mobo...

    i'm planning to upgrade to a Athlon X2+6000 and some MOBO that supports the AM2 socket. Do you think that this will help me get a decent FRAMERATE? ...

    Side Note : I recently played some new games (less cpu intensive) games and got a reasonable framerate... I played TimeShift with everything on MAX and got from 20 to 40 FPS, i hope that this confirms my new Videocard is not the problem (?).

    For my old topic : http://www.techspot.com/vb/showthread.php?p=526589&posted=1#post526589
