GForce FX 5600 Ultra Settings

Recommended Posts

I was using my old VooDoo 5 5500 when I first picked up my copy of FS2004 and the performance was about what i expected, pretty poor. Since I had the card for awhile, I figured it was time for an upgrade. So I went out and bought a GeForce FX 5600 Ultra. However, the performance isn't that much better. This just can't be can it? I am using the lasted drivers, my CPU is a P4 1.7 ghz wiht 512mb of DDR PC2100 RAM. I play with the settings and sliders, but there doesn't seem to be any change. Can anyone offer any suggestions if they are using this same card? ThanksLarry JEvansville, IN

Larry, I suspect your CPU is the cause of your low FPS. The 1.7GHz P4 is the old "Wilamette" core and gets outperformed by CPUs several hundred MHz slower. If you really want better performance, you may want to check into getting a new motherboard and CPU. Checkout pricewatch.com for the latest prices on CPUs & motherboards. I'm not sure what your budget is, but you could get a new CPU & mobo for anywhere from $180 (Athlon XP 2500+ "Barton" CPU w/Asus A7N8X Nforce2 mobo) on up to over $900 for a P4 3.2GHz w/Asus or Gigabyte Canterwood 875 mobo.hope this helps,-Max Cowgill
