Exclamation Sick of low fps, need help please

Ive owned PR for a while now and many times experience low fps when games like metro 2033 and fallout new vegas run fine.

CPU - Intel(R) Pentium(R) Dual CPU E2220 @ 2.40GHz
GPU - NVidia GeForce GTX 275
RAM - 4Gb (recognises about 3.3gb)

At the moment I run it on high with 8x anti aliasing, but before you say why dont you run on lower settings, I've found it doesnt make much of a difference. On many maps even on low settings I am still getting low fps.

Another peculiar thing is my fps seems to drop a lot when I look towards the centre of the map whether I am staring into a brick wall or otherwise.

any help appreciated, I love the game but would like to experience it without bad fps.

May I ask why you have a GTX 275 but a Pentium dual core? It could be the processors fault, since newer games might utilize the GPU more. See how fast your internet is/pingtest and then we'll see.

What resolution are you running?

Turning down AA usually helps with FPS alot.

This looking at the map center thing appears to be a more common problem, I think its beeing worked on by the devs. Along with a few other performance tweaks.

BF2 is a CPU intensive game. The better the CPU the better BF2 will perform.
Try setting affinity for the game (BF2.exe) to only one core.

Not sure if this is your problem but running in Compatibility Mode / Admin Mode destroyed my FPS so I'd make sure you have them disabled.

D33PS1X - I have a fast internet connection (for where I live) around 2-3 MB/s. Good old australian internet, slow and expensive compared to the rest of the world . When i play on aussie servers ping is about 30-40.
And I have a gtx 275 and pentium d because i havent had the money for a mobo and cpu upgrade yet. Next thing on my list.

[R-COM]SnipingCoward - How do I go about setting setting the game to run on only one core??

FuzzySquirrel - I am running windows XP with only the one user so I am the system admin is that what you mean by admin mode? Or are you referring to that annoying tool in windows vista?

google is your friend:
How To Set Processor Affinity To An Application In Windows 7,Vista,XP


1920x1080 is quite high of a resolution. Reducing it would probably increase your FPS but if you use a lower res than your LCD's native resolution you will have a blurry image.

Now I understand that BF2.exe is a single core program. and i also understand that MANY MANY MANY people are suggesting the above solution. But what i dont understand is that when i tried that, i actually got worse performance. like a LOT worse. for some reason, BF2.exe is capable using more than 1 core on my computer.

I can even SEE that. When i put it on 1 core only, that core goes to 100% and all other cores are like 2-5% and my performance goes to shits. But as soon as i set it to 2 or 3 cores, i can actually see all 2 or 3 cores being used while the 4th core still stays at 2-5% and the performance goes back to normal. I dont understand why or how that happens, but it does for me.

So i guess for a dual core it wud be better, but not for a quad core? can someone explain why this happens?

Your last statement would be false.
I have a Quad Core, with at least 100+ other people here.

what are your other specs?
