Need more out of my pc !

I bought a new pc 6 months ago, but since i'm not an expert on hardware nor software i was wondering if there are things that can make my pc run faster & smoother.
I bought a standard pc since i didn't have that much money to buy an uber gaming machine.
These are the specs:
Processor
AMD Phenom X4 9550

GFX card
ATI Radeon HD 4850, GDDR3, 512 MB,2x DVI-I, TV-out

Memory
4 GB (2x 2 GB), DDR2 PC5300, 667 MHz
Dual Channel possible

HDD
1000 GB
7200 RPM
Interface: S-ATA 2
16 MB Cache

Audio
Realtek High Definition Audio (8-kanaals)

O/S
Visto Home Premium 32-Bits

Was wondering how to get more performance out of these specs without making my comp fail totally or let it be dead in 1 week.. My ET works fine but it isn't optimal on big maps or in gunfights... The new ATI drivers helped me alot to improve my fps :D


All help is welcome

You should be getting 125 fps on all maps with that setup. I've got a cheaper graphics card than you and i get 125 no problem
should i reinstall vista then?
Parent
Maybe take Windows XP, it will help u very much with getting higher fps ;)
Parent
got some link to dl ? :d
Parent
Ehmm use utorrent or bittorrent http://www.piratebay.org and search for Windows XP and you'll definetly find 1 hf with it
Parent
install linux for ET, XP will be only a few % faster than Vista on your PC, but not in all games
Parent
Could be true Never used Linux before :D
Parent
Matters about your ET r_commands, CFG, r_mode etc. not just your computer settings
Parent
ati is your problem :D
true, don't like it tha much :(

Parent
What can i do with the cpu then? :d
r_mode 3 and you'll do great
does that really work? lower resolution = higher fps?
Parent
Yep, It lowers graphix too :o)
Parent
Thank you kind Polish bro x3.
Parent
your pc isnt good enough,sorry
if you running vista you should run it as adminstator (ET) & with those graphichs & videocards you should run ET smoothly 125 or more... no problems..
Your no name ram won't do you any favours, Turn off Vertical Refresh in Catalst Control Centre will help abit, and turn off AA
gamebooster

makes my fps more stable u should try it :)
Thank you kind finish guy, I've been searching for this program for like 3 month.
And exactly what this program does, I do manual when I'm in-game, I don't have to do this crap manual anymore x3!
