CPU Limited?


Recommended Posts


Okay, sorry if this is in the wrong section.


I ran the benchmark (I know it's not reliable, but better than nothing)


I ran the benchmark with medium textures, rest all high at 1680x1050 and got 36fps, okay, sounds good, so I ran it 800x600 all low/off and got 36fps. I'm guessing that's my CPU limiting me? Also, will putting Vista 64bit back on help at all? I'm not complaining, I'm getting really good performance, just wondering. I may also add that I get better framerates ingame than the benchmark for some reason, BUT, I get stuttering that I didn't get on Vista 64 on my old GPU. (9500GT DDR2)



AMD Athlon 64 X2 5200+

5GB Ram

XFX HD5670 512mb GDDR5 (latest driver)

Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit (I know, I'm gonna try to go back to Vista 64bit to see if it helps at all, 7 32bit is just temporary cause I couldn't find the Vista 64 disks for this PC)

You should download a program called MSI Afterburner to check your GPU usage while playing - if it isn't at 100% while playing then you can be sure your graphics card isn't the bottleneck.


My 5850 is only just hitting 100% usage after overclocking my processor to 4ghz.
