Hey, I'm a noob to the PC gamer world and I'm having some trouble with my game. My FPS is terrible and I have to keep it at the lowest resolution possible just to be able to kill people. Here's what i got:

Dell XPS410 winXP
nvidia Gforce 7300 256 MB
Core 2 Duo w/2.13 ghz
1G ram

Sounds like I need an upgrade or do you have any tips? Help would be appreciated.

New as you may be to the gaming world, I hope you arent too worried about editing game files.

Look at the Legal Tweaks thread and apply some or all of them. Get rid of bloom for the greatest boost, and turn shadows off or to low.

The GF7300 isnt as good as the 6800, and you are on the real low side of the CPU.

This might be a tough one but you should be able to run the game by turning everything to low and tweaking down bloom.

you can also try some of the tweaks listed in the following thread

He's got a Core 2 Duo and yet, he needs to update? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif

+1 on the tweaks, read the whole 3 or 4 pages and do them 1 by 1 and test the game after each one.

R6 doesnt use multithreading, so a dual core 2.13 is just a 2.13 or a 2gig processor. Its doesnt give him a 4gig CPU.

Its on the low side.

He needs more RAM. 1Gig of RAM is very low for today's games.

You might want to turn on fraps and put down your actual FPS. 'Terrible' is a very open-ended term. I've only been able to get 15-20..28 MAX ever fps on vegas, with a slightly less powerful machine than what you posted. Now, I can kill people just fine, and I knew it would run poorly, so 15-20 is bitterly acceptable on that PC.
