you should upgrade your, because csgo is a very cpu-intensive game.
Do you have a budget? I'd start with upgrading the CPU, MOBO & RAM in this case.
It's not worth it to upgrade to another s775 CPU, if you want to upgrade your cpu you will have to get a new motherboard and probably new DDR3 ram too as your DDR3 is likely older stuff that takes more voltage to run to spec.
That GT520 is a very low end card and that is where you would see the largest gain.
If you could replace that card and give your cpu an overclock you should see a much more stable framerate.
Before looking into overclocking you should check what motherboard you are currently using and make sure it's capable. Do a lot of reading on the subject and you may want to pick up a decent cheap aftermarket cpu cooler.
The plus of getting a new video card and cooler is you can always move them over to a new cpu/motherboard/ram combo if you decide to upgrade more down the line.
Yes, a new video card is the route I would take in your situation.
Unfortunately that motherboard isn't the best choice for overclocking as it's more of a budget oriented chipset with integrated graphics.
I'd start out with a new video card as you can always use that in a new build down the line. I'm not sure how much you actually have to spend so I'll hold off on suggestions.
And yes by a cooler I mean the big chunk of metal with fins that sits on your CPU and usually has a fan or two on it.
you just need a better gpu , your cpu works perfectly in almost every game , just try to overclock it a bit to 3.0 or 3.2ghz .
and I doubt you can't really play with 100fps ... , I got a way worst pc than yours and I get the same or higher fps than you ..
maybe u got some outdated videocard drivers, or some heat on cpu or gpu , check it .
Thank you all, you have helped me a great deal :D
Depends on your budget honestly.
Upgrading the CPU would lead most likely to new chip + motherboard (maybe even + new RAM) whereas the GPU, well, it is only the GPU.
As long as the cpu does not bottleneck it.
My secondary setup consists of the following:
Windows Vista @ 64Bit
E5300 Dual-Core @ 2.6GHz
NVIDIA GeForce 9600GS
In 5 on 5 matches, I'm at a constant 128fps (capped). In deathmatch scenarios, I'm shifting between 80 and 120fps (4:3r; 1024x768p; lowest graphic settings).
I overclocked my CPU to 3.2GHz, defragmented and cleaned up my hard drive, updated my drivers as well as the BIOS, used the launch option "-high" in order for windows to run csgo.exe at a higher priority, forced the refresh rate, disabled unnecessary processes and used the Vista AERO skin @ 0% transparency in order to safe computing capacity, set windows to prefer using the CPU to run games instead of the GPU and forced my GPU to let the CPU prerender the maximum of frames (you have to be careful not to suffer from input lag of your peripherals IN-GAME with this though). You also want to remove the dust from your PC's fans regularly and even add additional fans (especially if you OC your CPU) as this helps your system's stability and allows for it to go all out on game performance.
Buy yourself a new graphic card and OC your CPU to keep up with it would be my advice.
How you managed to do that: set windows to prefer using the CPU to run games instead of the GPU and forced my GPU.
I ask, because I don't know if I think about same thing as you did :P
How many fps can i expect from this rig:
quad core Q8400(2.66 ghz)
ram : 4gb
gpu : 9500GT
I know everything is shit in the above rig..but i wll be considering it as an alternate gaming pc for playng with my brother/
I will be putting everything on low and 800x600 resolution.
How much fps can i expect?
