I recently purchased a brand new desktop. It came with a 128mb GeForce FX5200 installed, 512Mb DDR RAM and a 3.2Ghz P4 with HT. Now, while playing Counter-Strike: Source im getting a very low Frames Per Second and i cant understand why. My PC has double the spec required to play it yet it plays like a slide-show. I'm wondering whether it could be due to lack of RAM, maybe my proccesor isn't fast enough, or is it the FX5200?
I haven't actually tried this as i didn't think it would be neccesary on such a new PC. As for the graphic card being lower class, that seems a little more understandable. However, what would be a reasonably cheap upgrade for AGP 8x?
