Unbearable D3 performance.

Recommended Posts

Hello, im trying to run doom 3 on this system:

Athlon XP tbred B at 2005mhz
512mb kingston value ram
nVidia geforce 4 MX 420
epox 8rda3i motherboard

I know its not great, particularly the video card, but it does fit the minimum requirements, and over at hardocp in the 'hardocp hardware guide' (http://www2.hardocp.com/article.html?art=NjQ0LDU=
they tested it with a system wich appears to be even less powerful then mine and averaged 20 fps on the Enpro level, wich is supposed to be one of the more demanding levels. I'm getting an average of about 7 on any level with all settings
turned down as low as possible, and all advanced options off except bump mapping. I cant seem to find anything that would cause doom to go this slow, its hardly playable like this. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

How much Anisotropic filtering and Anti-Aliasing do you have on?

Tried updating the drivers lately?

That's what I can think of now.

I have AA/AF off, and the quality set to 'High Performance' in the nVidia control panel, using the newest drivers (have also tried omega drivers).
