|I have a similar system as far as speed goes. The only difference is the video card: ti4200, which is faster than yours, but not directx 9 complient. The game runs decent on my system, so I can't say your slow down is a result of system speed. However, you should shutdown unnecessary programs that may be running in the background (Look in taskmanager, also run msconfig). You should also make sure your system is virus and spyware free. Run a defrag and disk error check. You can also defrag the local game files within steam. Just right click a game in the steam window, and click on properties--local files-- defragment cache files. |
What is your ping time during these slowdowns? Is it consistent, or does it suddenly jump really high? Keep in mind, you should play on servers that are near your location, i.e. if you live on the west coast, don't play on an east coast server. I still get occasional slowdowns during extremely intense battles with multiple sg's going off, but nothing close to what you are describing. Does this same type of phenomena happen in any other games? Get your system healthy, and report back.
