    im running athlon 1600XP, 512DDR, 9600XT radeon... (nothing special)
    i have trouble joining games with 32+ppl, and i dont think i should see all the other players strobe like they are at a disco... i think it is something to do with my rates, but i can't change em coz i dont know how ... does ne one suggest a good rate speed, and also can they tell me how to chage em... and also, should i be using D3D or OpenGL...
    cheeers guys

    Well your 1600 CPU is/will be within this year for sure. If you're on an extremly tight budget and cannot afford a major upgrade i'd suggest another 512MB of Ram, that will probably give you the biggest boost for now. And also how many programs do you have running in the background and/or at startup?

    i never have any... i dont know what it is... it probably is the CPU... when i play, its not my screen that lagges, or even my animation.... its just the other figues of ppl, when they run, its sorta strobes, can u do something with the rates?? i just dont know the right settings and what to do...

    (i am also trying to get a new CPU, i am on a tight budget :()
