View Full Version : will PS run om my comp?

2003-02-05, 01:49 PM
ok my comp specs are:

700mhz =(
586MB ram
Gforce4 64mb card

the only think thats holding me back is my CPU speed, but in DAOC (Dark Age Of Camelot) the system specs for it is almost the same with the x-pansion and it runs fine so im hoping the ram will save me here also. Thank you =)

Not well.

Can you play BF1942 online? On a 64 player server?

It will run it, but it will perform very poorly. You can buy a nice mobo-cpu combo at Monarch:


If you want to play PS, you will need a significant upgrade.

You might be able to paly it but set everything to minimum settings and you'll still with lag.

That's why I suggested the combo. If you want to go with AMD, go here:


All of the boards offered in the pull-down menu work with AMD processors. I and I'm sure Nav would recommend the NForce board, and then choose which-ever processor works with your pocket-book. Preferably 2100+ and up.

If you want Intel processors, go here:


Once again, all of the boards offered in the pull-down menu work with Intel processors. Gigabyte and Asus are probably the best boards offered, although you will need RAMBUS ram for a couple of their boards, and that will cost you more in the long-run.

It's a pretty simple process to upgrade, if you need any help just come and ask ;)

OK Thanks, my proceeser is celeron.
BUt AMD is very good for gaming i know. =) just wnat to know if thier borads run on SDram cuz that what im using at the moment. sorry for the newb questions hehe.

The Biostar M7VKQ is the only I see there that runs SDRAM. Here are some reviews of that board:


2003-02-06, 03:10 PM
ahhh looks nice but i only see it on newegg its not on the other site u gave me. enither way my 18th birday next week so i have my mom it it for me =)

2003-02-06, 03:21 PM
It's on there, but it's only in the "Boards Below Only Work Up To 2400+". It looks like this:

110667 - Biostar M7KVQ VT8361 Video/Lan/Audio PC133 $50.00


See if you can convince your mom to get you an Asus NForce2 and a nice AMD processor. I don't know alot about AMD, so maybe someone else could tell which is the best processor value. If I were wanting an upgrade, but needed my parents to buy it for me, I would tell them how much cheaper it would be in the long-run to spend $500 on a new mobo/processor combo than it would to wait a year and have your PC crap out. ;)

Good luck

ok last quetion hehe, so if i ge tthe Bistar that would be good enough to run PS right? this borad faster tehen 900mhz? =)

2003-02-07, 10:05 AM
Well, according to the reviews on NewEgg, that board isn't the greatest for gaming. I would recommend taking the boards available on the list and then doing a search at NewEgg to look for reviews. Unfortunately, you will probably end up having to go with a board that supports DDR rather than SDRAM. You can also use Motherboards.org:
