  • help needed

    well it seems i messed up a bit i bought the geforce 8400gs pci to play battlefield 2142 but i found out a few days after that the card wasnt made with gameing in mind.. so i sorta screwed myself

    But is there anyway i can get oh say at least 20fps on the TG server when the battle gets heated with this apparently bad card?

    Other system specs dimension 3000 computer
    2gigram
    sound blaster xfi card
    celeron cpu 2.4ghz

    I can give a more detailed list but thats the basics

    Are you running it on low settings? That would be the first thing to cut back on.

        According to http://www.tomshardware.com/charts/g...d[1584]=on you can get 15 fps maxed out with no AA etc. so swapping down to low or medium should fix you're problems.

          Drag view distance down to about 70% and you framerates should go up to about 25 fps even in a firefight with everything else on low, AA and AS off.

              Overclocking a 8400 GS isn't really worthwhile.

              If the card is still within 30 days of when you purchased it, you could still get a refund with most stores. Then you can put the money to getting a 9600GT or something else more powerful.
