BFBC2 Problem..
 
hey guys..

I got a problem with my BFBC2.. it has very low fps.. is my pc not enough?
Specs:

gtx 550ti
2gb ram ddr3
windows ultimate 32-bit

my fps is at 15 in mission 2 Cold War..
any help will be appreciated :D

not enough ram, and a 550ti would barely play BC2.

Yeah. I'd say RAM and perhaps CPU. But what resolution do you run at? I used to play BC2 on a GTS 250 (with a C2Q and 4GB RAM) on 1680x1050, and it was fine on medium (I think?).

My laptop plays bc2 on low 720p at 30-40fps. i5 2.4ghz, 4gb ram and 420m. your ram is low and cpu is only a dual core. you should be able to get more fps so I'm thinking it has to be the ram.

But my friends runs it smooth, all settings maxed at the same specs but he has hd 5670 video card and windows XP... is his card better than mine?

No, 550ti is better. Maybe it's a driver issue. Try downloading the latest NVIDIA drivers, and during the instal, make it do a clean instal.

At that resolution, you should be running BC2 fine...

i did it already.. my current driver is 285.62 .still the performance of my friend is better..
is the OS a factor?

It's not your GPU. You need more RAM and overclocking your cpu would help quite a bit. I found on my laptop if I turned the graphics to high it hardly made my fps drop, because my limiting factor is my cpu.

Weird how his friend has the same specs just a different GPU and runs it fine
