    Default TDU Specs

    Hello all,

    As you might know, i've been wanting a new PC for a fair few months now. But due to me driving next year, I feel as if I should put the money away for whats important. (Causing havok on UK roads). Below are my...dare I say it...****e specs. What do you suggest I add / upgrade to squeeze performance out of the little ****e?

    I'm wanting to play 'Test Drive Unlimited' mainly but due to the specs, I have lag after lag after lag.

    My Specs:

    Intel Celeron 2.40GHz (Overclocked to 3.2GHz, Hardcore baby.....Jee)
    2 GB Ram
    80GB H-Drive
    x1600 Pro 512MB (AGP)
    Asus P4SP-MX Motherboard

    TDU Specs reccomend:

    Intel P4 2.4Ghz
    1GB Ram
    8GB Hard-drive
    ATI Dadeon 9800 256MB or NVidia 6600 GT


    Lets face it, with the motherboard I have, theres nothing much I can do

    I have around £50 to spend. I don't mind going to Ebay if I have to.

    I have over half my hard-drive left. And I defragged today, still poor peformance.

    I can run the game, it just lags like mad.

    upgrade the CPU. that overclocked celeron is the same as the 3200+ i had on my old rig. i got 25fps with that + 7300gs on 800x600. seeing as you have a slightly better gpu, keep that and just upgrade the cpu. something to like a e2180 if your motherboard can support it.

    My motherboard would commit sucide if it heard the word 'Dual Core'.

    overclock the gpu if your psu and gpu cooler can handle it? if not, it's best to save up a bit more.
