Question Hardware prob

hey, im just wondering if there is something goin on with my computer because on Doom 3 and some others, im only getting around 25-30 FPS on average, i have the settings on medium 800 by 600 res, all settings on, besides Anti-aliasing and vertical sync, and my computer specs are, 768 RAM, AMD sempron 3100+, Nvidia GeForce 6200, and a 37gb HDD. I think the FPS are much lower than they should be because i have a friend who basically had the same as me and he had Doom 3 running at 40 FPS in Ultra-High, please help.

The GeForce 6200 is not a very good card, the fps sounds about right.

That's actually just where you should be with that video card.

What you have is very outdated. Please do not take offense from what I am saying, I am just trying to help. So anyways, the hardware you have is outdated by 2+ years. You probably have a store bought computer, which will usually not be able to play games well anyways.

If you really want to play games, I would just go and save up the money and build a new computer or have one built for you. The information on this board is way more than enough to help you build a gaming computer of any budget!

If you want more info on how to build computers etc please PM or IM me, I'll be glad to guide you in the right direction.

Oh and you will probably ask if you could upgrade what you have, and the answer is, it won't help.

Well he would have to spend 200+ for video card, then he is probably going to want to spend another 180 for 2gb of ram to run Doom3 at a higher FPS.
