On Quake 3 I get a 64.9 fps on 1024X768X32bit and everything maximum details. This is on demo Four.66?? from v1.30 of Quake 3. Now these are the specs of the PC: Pentium 4 1.8GHz 512k Cache Chaintech 9BJD Intel 845D chipset 128MB DDR CL 2.5 8.4 GB HD ATA 66.. Chaintech GeForce 2 Ti A-G220 w/ 32 DDR (250/333) Windows Me (&XP) Please someone explain why I'm get low performance... is it the graphics card, the hard disk or the rams? On the other games that I have installed (GTA 3 gives 30fps with FRAPS) I'm also getting lower than average fps. (With UT2003 demo benchmark i got this : UT2003 Build UT2003_Build_[2002-09-13_17.31] Windows 98 4.90 (Build: 73010104) GenuineIntel Unknown processor @ 1817 MHz with 127MB RAM NVIDIA GeForce2 Ti (4109) dm-antalus?game=engine.gameinfo exec=..\Benchmark\Stuff\flybyexec.txt -benchmark -seconds=77 -nosound 6.892960 / 41.070179 / 221.527557 fps rand Score = 41.094681 Keep in mind that I'm in high school and don't have that much money, thats why I upgrading slowly.
