I used to use a Dell i3 with 3gb of ram and standard GT525M Vid card. FPS 40-70 and Ping all over the place. Now i use a Dell i7 with 8gb of ram and GTXNvidia. FPS 100-130 and low ping (single figures mostly), also 100mb fibre optic broadband (hard-wired).
since i got my new gaming computer with i7 and 16gb of ram and nvidia gtx690 i got 200 fps and my ping is 1 since we have fiberglass internet
Dont you mean fiber optic? And I'm pretty sure 1 ping is very well impossible.
OP: Make sure you have a mid level graphics card and a good CPU. Those are the 2 main steps. I've been running this with 3 GB ram and its pulling straight 100 FPS so ram doesn't really matter, however, its all about the CPU and the GPU. Keep those 2 in mind.
I have a solution, go to your computer and then select properties, then go to Advanced System Settings, hit settings and then advanced options, you give change, choose custom size and add in the first box in 2000 and the other 4000 , reboot your computer and you will notice the changes. This helps speed up your processor and your ram. Try this and close the post.
