Fps trouble Intel 82865g graphics control

  1. Hi, no sure if this post should be here or somewhere else sorry. .

    i have a Veriton 5600g computer here and i installed 2 games on it world of warcraft and counter strike 1.6.

    i tried cs 1.6 first only to find that my highest fps was 15 (cant even play with that) i tried lowering the graphic settings and but still did nothing so i decided to try wolrd of warcraft.

    same problem aswell but my fps wouldnt go higher than 10fps i used to be able to play it comforably on 20fps another computer which had a radeon x300.

    i have download the latest driver updates, virus checked, defragemet and turning off other background programs.

    My only conclusion is that this computer is to old for these games. . . below is a copy from cpuz and dxdiag

  2. i think your problem is your graphics chip. that card is having a hard time. integrated cards always sucked when it came to gaming. so i would suggest finding a new graphics card for your pc if you want to play games like those. the computer itself may be too old in terms of what slots it has. so you may need to scrap it and get a new one, or find a video card that will fit and give you the performance boost you need, and use that for a while.

    Onboard video is designed for general computing, not Gaming as such.

    Open the Case & see if it has an AGP slot, then you can upgrade with a Video Card. The choice is a bit limited because, being a Socket 478, it will defintely be AGP - which is old hat now - but you can still pick up something like a 9600XT, or 7600GT that'll play those games comfortably.
  4. or you can go one better. there are AGP versions of the ATI radeon x1950 512mb pro. that card, considering his current options would be the best AGP card that could possibly be bought and installed.

    that card ran bioshock with decent frames and good detail. i would say it is definitely worth trying if you're willing to spend 175 bucks for one.

    thanks for the replies inside it there is 4 slots. 3 are white and 1 is a dark colour i dont know what a agp slot looks like. i do know that my Radeon x300 se card cant fit in any of the slots

    . ill have a look around for some of those cards. im starting to feel i got ripped off buying this for $300 australian dollars.

    thanks again anymore advice is welcome

    Looking at the board, is the single slot above the 3 that are the same? If so, it's an AGP - the other card wouldn't fit as it's PCIe.

    That card you mentioned will be OK - don't go for anything cheaper as it won't be much of an improvement over the onboard.

    Pluscorp still list quite a few AGP cards http://www.pluscorp.com.au/ContentMaster.asp?CategoryID=5 personally I'd go for the 7600GT, it's not much more.

    Sunny QLD eh? I lived in Cairns for a couple of years from 1992.

    I will agree the 7600GT would be the best card for those games u can get at that site.
