Playing ET:QW

So the ET:QW beta is finally out & it looks reasonably playable. But my pcs fairly old 'n I'm lagging to shit. Any idea on the cheapest way to upgrade my pc to make this playable?

NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200
Pentium 4 CPU 2.8
510MB ram

Price is a semi-issue, value > *

More ram, cheapest single way to get more fps for you!
Cheap way of telling you already have the beta, fuck you:P
And maybe more memory like 256mb.
i doesent got much better myself.
AMD athlon xp3200+
NVIDIA GeForce fx5500
512mb DDR
Definatly more ram.. simplest solution, doesnt need anything to be replaced, and more ram is allways good :)
another gfx & more ram
Buy a whole new pc... no use to upgrade this system, its too old.
Hardware in these days is cheap, ddr2 = cheap, dual core (or x2) processors are cheap so... buy a new pc. 500 euro's and you're done.
lol my pc cost 1050 euro's so far, and still upgrading like every month.
ur parents must got loads of money then i see.
saved up most of the money myself, and my dad gave me some extra for my birthday.
that's cheap, mine cost way over 2500e half a year ago

but it's true u can get a good pc for 500e
i actually only had 1050 euro's to spend, if i would've had more i would've buyed other/more parts.

gonna get a new version of windows and a new sound card next month, after that i'm going for 2 gig of ram:D

then a headset, then a new videocard etcetera etcetera
omg i was able to vote twice this one fucked up poll
You need a whole new PC, simple as that.
i think i will need to buy a new one aswell then ^^.

Intel Celeron 1.7 ghz
Geforce 6200

80 GB
Err, yes you will :P
for 500 € you can get a descent computer ?
I'm not up to date on hardware at the moment, you'd have to ask someone who is, sorry.

Relatively cheap, save up on RAM memory so you can buy a better GFX card, it's what i did to.
But for the motherboard and processor, get something you'll be able to use for over 2 years or so.

Got 3500+ with 6600GT AGB RAM, yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee, I passed !!!
thats for the Beta.. they require often more things then the whole version
I'll change my config during the summer so nP :p

Core2Duo E6700 , 8800 GTX 768Mo, 4GBRAM

Think it will be enough for the game, or not x)
dont play QW, save ET scene
New GFX at first, FX series is the worst geforce serie. I have had FX5600 end of May and now I have GF 6600G6 256MB RAM. Can't really describe how difference is big.
8500 GT = 75€
2gb OCZ DDR2-800 = 99€
Most important for memory is the chips used, best chips at the moment is micron
ye don't think i don't remember you insulting me yesterday bitch
does et:qw need more gfx power compared to ET?

if yes u should buy a new gfx, but I don't know if it's any use for such an old system..
minimum you need is an amd 3500+ 1 go ram + 7600 gt

good config for it will be an intel E6600 (2,4 Ghz) + 2 go ddr2 + 8600 gt

best config will come this summer with the E6850 (3 Ghz) + 2go ddr2 + 8800 gts 320 mb
so it should run smoothly on my E6700 2gb ddr2 and 7900GT top?
Yes easily !
not to help anymore
need a fully new pc
c2d E4300 68 paunds
8600gt 77 paunds
2gb 6400 ram - 77 paunds
random p35 or 965 mobo - 70 paunds

290~ paunds ( random uk webshop)

upgrading your shit is useless

Wait until the end of july, the Intel processor prices wil drop with 10% to 50%!! Because there's a new line of Intel processor is comming. Also DDR3 wil get more "normal" so the DDR2 memory prices will drop allot! gl hf
