    Default TDU came and I can't play it. :(





    I get an average of 3fps!!

    It's on lowest settings.

    Any ideas on how to fix this? Or even make it any better?

    I have a GeForce FX 5500 (which I'm using) and an internal GeForce 6100.'

    Any ideas?



    EDIT: total specs
    430W Thermaltake Power Supply
    AMD Athlon X2 Dual Core 3800+ 2.01GHz rated at 5.70GHz
    Nvidia mobo
    1GB RAM
    GeForce 5500 FX



    Btw, the Xbox 360 controller worked perfectly.

    Yeah, I'm going to get a 7600GT, but it won't be here until early July.

    First, your video card cannot make it unless you put all settings on Windows to "Performance" instead of "Quality". With all details off and the lowest resolution, you might get an FPS rate of around 15 and that would be quite playable if it's stable on 15 (plus or minus 2 FPS).

    I'd also double the RAM of your computer from one to two gigabytes, it might just make your system run smoother. As for the video card, I can recommend you the GeForce 7900 GS, that's the card I have and my processor is only half as good as yours is. Your processor is just a cutie!
    Meow!

    Yeah, it p00ns but I'm only buying something that will hold me over until they get the new DX10 cards. Also, my PSU has a 12V rating of 18Amps which can't hold the 7900gs. So yeh, if I get the EVGA 7600GT, I will probably be able to get it by this weekend. Btw, do you have msn/xfire/aim?




    EDIT:



    Still only about 3 fps.

    I had the same problem, and I had roughly the same specs as you. I then borrowed $400AU from my mum, bought a 7600GT (which also increased my RAM from 894MB to 1022MB - 2 hits with 1 stone) and I'm getting about 40 FPS on fullscreen and high details.

    An extremely cheap video card alternative is believe it or not, the good old Radeon 9600XT. Runs it smoothly at lowest and even some AA on my second computer- which only has 512MB RAM and an Athlon 64 3200!

    i would recomend the 8800 gts, the problem is that, at leat where i live, it costs 50% more than the 7900GTO (wich is an very good card despite its dx9.0c )
