I've recently upgraded my old Dell Dimension E510

Intel Core Duo 3.00Ghz
ATI Radeon X300 128MB hypermemory
510MB RAM
and a Square screen about the size of 3 mechanical pencils <_<

To an Acer AspireX1200
AMX athlon dual core 2.5Ghz
Nvidia Geforce 8200
4Gigs of Ram
1680 x 1050 widescreen.

My problem is that i used to be able to host perfect servers on halo CE, without my FPS going below 25. Now with my new computer, if i look at about...6-8 people that are stationary, my FPS goes down to 8. I have to get out of the area where everyone is then it will go back up to 31. Can anyone help?

Wait... An Intel Core Duo with 3.00Ghz? That doesn't sound bad. Ofcourse when I google that all I come up with is Core 2 Duos.Then I come up with Intel Core on wikipedia, but it says that it has a max clock speed of 2.33Ghz.

I've done what higuy did and reduced the resolution back to 800 x 600. Now it works pefectly and stays at 31 FPS. I tried it on a higher res and got a solid 28. So i guess im good for this now.

Also, thats what the directX diagnostic tool said about the processor. But i never trust it, so yeah i guess that is the max speed. Boxes always lie. Frankly i dont trust dell to be anything good anymore after my old computer.

I wouldnt mind if this topic gets closed now. I've gotten what i needed.
