Multi-tasking advice needed (I think)

  gartoye 20:07 06 Oct 2005

Hi, ive got an online pc shoot-em-up game which is great to play, but i go on MSN to set up an audio chat with my gaming buddy & the graphics sound go really jerky when we go back to the game. Please offer some advice, ive been playing Socom2 on PS2 for the past 18mths & enjoy online gaming but this new game ive got just blows the PS2 away! Many thanks, system specs below.

Athlon xp1000 mhz
1gb ddr RAM
64mb geforce 2 graphics card
150gb HDD
Windows XP sp2

Possibly your interner connection is too slow?

internet - not interner.

sounds like a memory prob to me which you do not appear to state.

my internet is 2mb bt broadband, is this fast enough to handle an online game plus an msn audio conversation?

Try Skype > click here < instead, it's much less resource hungry than MSN.
