SOOOO, heres my sad story:
So 2 years ago I built a custom computer, here are the Main specs:
AMD Athlon 64 x2-5600
EVGA 8800 GTS 320MB
3.5 GB Ram
2 hds -- 1tb/500gb
Windows XP Pro, non 64 bit edition
So, I recently got Fallout 3, awesome game, and when i first played it, it was like great and ran well with the settings about half way up with good resolution. After that, every time i played it, it got slower and slower, so i had to lower the settings again and again, until today im playing it with all extra settings off, 800 by 600 res, looks like hell, and it lags worse than the first time i played it!
My system meets the requirements, except i only have 320 video memory instead of 512, can this be a major factor?
I updated my system, driver for video card, and even updated the game, no luck.
Also, when playing it for like the second time, my computer got too hot and quit the game, so is overheating causing bad problems?
Any help is super appreciated!
