My system specs are as listed:
AMD PII X4 940 3.0ghz (quad-core)
AMD ATI HD4870 512MB
4gb ddr2 800 ram
Foxconn A7A9S 790FX mobo
650W Corsair power supply
I'm running the game on 1024x768 on this machine, yet I can still only manage around 20-35 FPS when I benchmark it with the FRAPS overlay. Anyone got any tips on how to boost performance? Help appreciated.
Make sure that you are not running on your integrated GPU, a 4870 has way more than enough power to run 2142 at such a small resolution. You will most likely have to disable it through the BIOS, but I'm not sure what options AMD provides about disabling the integrated graphics.
Edit: hmm looks like you don't have an integrated GPU, in that case I would make sure that your drivers are installed correctly. Are you having problems with just 2142 or are all your games running poorly?
