i3 2100 not handling games at full speed
#1
i was told this processor should be enough for most games.. though so far i've tested ff12 , dragon quest 8, and dark cloud 2 .. all of which drop to 40 fps and have noticeable/annoying lag which make the games unenjoyable/playable for me

system
i3 2100 cpu
6870 gpu
4gb ram
samsung spinpoint 1tb hdd
windows 7 64 bit

*if that is a laptop thus your selected games will get a marginal performance.
*if that is a desktop then same as above try OC on the range of 4.2~5Ghz.
*and also check the cpu temperatures (coretemp) if the performace getting worst

*ff12,dq7 and dc are demanding CPU games

Didn't you say just a few days ago that FF12 and Dark Cloud 2 were running full speed in your PC? Oo

Dragon quest on the other hand is known for being slow.

If you post your PCSX2 settings, plugin settings and the EE/GS% data in game window when you have slowdowns maybe we can help a bit.

well better check his CPU temperatures using Coretemp
or other syptoms like anti-virus(auto-scan,scheduled scan) or number of processes(Task manager) are populated.

yes, i was a fool and only tested the intro areas and a few battles for each game respectively , then about 1 hour into each game is when the performance starts taking a hit. ee reaches 100% sometimes, other times it will be at 60% when the fps dips to the 40's . gs is always low

changing resolution to native doesn't improve performance at all so i 'm pretty certain it's not a gpu issue.

cpu temps peak at 44 c

*how many processes you see in the Task manager?
*try turn-off windows aero.
*refrain max-out the speed-hacks(try disable it)
