Thread: Smoke Effects Destroying FPS?!

    Ok, I know I have a budget video card, but should standard smoke effects in games completely destroy FPS? I've been using a MX 440-se for a while, then i went to a fx5200. I know they're funky, but all I can get on my current comp are pci cards. Regardless, just because they're crappy by todays standards, should games drop to 2 FPS when smoke gets close? I mean, this happens on older games too. If it is the video card, is there some kind of setting or program with a setting that could reduce this problem??

    I remember in the early days of SoF2, people with average PCs used to have problems with smoke grenades. It would grind their FPS to a halt.... which I why I used that to full effect. :)

    It's just the way the smoke is drawn.
