    What are the specs on your computer? Something that might boost them a bit is to set the resolution to the lowest (I use it on 800x600, get 150-180 fps which is more that enough for me) but it's pretty hard to work on the problem without the specs :) I'll try to help, I promise nothing tho!
  • Not sure if this belongs here, but would anyone suggest using mechanical keyboards with Cherry MX Blues solely for gaming (specifically fast paced, FPS games such as CF)?

    I'm currently deciding on purchasing either Blues or Browns. From my research, it appears that Browns have a slightly decreased actuation point than Blues; however, the Blues have a more pronounced clicking sound which I like (although I can't say the same for others around me).

    The keyboard I'm planning on buying is the Ducky Shine 3, for anyone who is curious.

    I have a quickfire tk with cherry mx blues and personally I don't like them. They are too light when I press them and I wouldn't recommend them for games where you constantly press keys. The blues do have a pretty loud clicking sound which I don't mind. I do hear good things about the ducky shine 3 tho. I would go with a heavier switch

    depends on the game. CF is heavily CPU reliant, whereas most newer games//games on newer engines are heavily GPU reliant. Say what games you are wanting to play and we'll be able to help...but it's worth saying that you will always get more value by building one yourself than a pre-built machine.

    Actually im playing only CF and i think i dont have enough knowledge to build myself a PC so at first im looking for pre-build ones but lets see,may i gain some knowledge
  • links are not working but i recomend you to get 1k $ laptob dont try to find cheap one it waste of money i7 + 2 gb video card + atleast 8 gb ram

    another question sorry, but is this computer worth the price and how much fps do you think it will give me?

    Here is a link to some PC builds. Of course these are "DIY" builds, in this day and age you can find videos of how to do just about anything, or you could have someone put it all together. Find a build that is right for your budget and look for the parts on eBay that are up for auction. It may take awhile to get all the parts going the auction route but it's worth it. I did the $800 build and won all my parts through auctions on eBay and paid a grand total of $423. All the parts that i won were new in box too!

  • thanks a lot TheShadowRo for the very detailed answer ;) .I think after this info ill get me a PC cuz i have a low budget and as you said i can add parts later which is a gr8 advantage.So at first i do only need a Motherboard and CPU +Keyboard etc?And do u guys think its necessary to have a 144Hz display for CF or what?DOnt want to spend 200+ only for a display.

    CF is mainly CPU-based. You are running a 1.6GHz Quad-core that was $45 on release. That's your problem. Your CPU (Or APU if you want to be pedantic) is too weak. You'll either need to replace your processor if possible, or get a new computer.
  • could someone tell me how to change colors of font in my signature please? if possible message my forums account please, thank you :)
  • i would recommend installing advanced system care, smart defrag, IObit uninstaller, and Driver Booster, all are products of IObit Inc. the best and most trusted free system care programs and i use them to keep my pc running at best performance, i play on a really old windows vista Dell PC, but with advanced system care you can optimize programs and game files like Crossfire and it will help increase your fps very much i think as mine use to be about 30-40 fps on average is now 70 average and at best 140+
  • Info?

    would anyone be able to tell em how to change font colors of my status please message my forums account if possible thank you :)
  • Laptop / Notebook :
    + Pro:
    easy to take with you - portable ( is a must if you travel a lot )
    low space required - only need a plane surface :)
    - Cons:
    not so much upgrade you can do : you can increase RAM or change HDD to a SSD
    need a high hardware for gamming - therefore are more expensive
    small display - most affrodable have a 15.6 inch display

    PC:
    + Pro :
    upgradable all the way ( you can start with a good mainboard and use CPU internal graphics and later add a good video card after you have the money , add RAM , add internal storage .. etc)
    more cheap then same hardware config on a laptop - display price not included most of the time
    - Con :
    need display, keyboard, mouse ,headset ..etc ( also for a gamming laptop you may wanna use external keyboard and sure will need a mouse and headset)
    need more space
    is not portable :)

    BUT latest trends made laptops more affrodable .. even with nice hardware for gamming ... and there is laptops for gamming under 1K euros :

    For Example:

    1. This one is already oldie since is the 4-th generation CPU : ASUS F550JX - but price is good if you can find-it on your country
    2. A newer version with 6-th generation CPU : Asus GL552VW - now this one is around 900 Eur - but is a good choice if you need a laptop.

    Basically for gamming laptops i advise to look on Asus ROG series (or Alienware - but they have overhigh killing prices) - they may have same hardware as other brands (Lenovo, Toshiba, Samsung.. etc) - BUT they are specially designed for gamming and have a better airflow - also they may endure long gamming sessions

    So main problem is the budget ... but if you will use only at home is best to consider a PC - there you can start with a lower budget and add later some upgrades :)

    Useful info . Thanks

  • how do you run crossfire on win 10 education
  • UsedIDUsedID Beginner
    I bet it's a right thread to ask. Friends, what antivirus do you use? I have only an integrated windows defender which I even partly disabled (it was blocking files that I was downloading). I read an avast premium review and I think it's a good choice. What are your thoughts? Or maybe there's something better?
  • WhiteDAOWhiteDAO Beginner
    @ UsedID
    At that price you have better choices :

    1. Bitdefender Internet security (best price for 3 devices) :
    https://www.bitdefender.com/solutions/internet-security.html

    2. Bitdefender Total Security (for 5 devices): https://www.bitdefender.com/solutions/total-security.html

    Comparation between bitdefender versions :

    https://www.bitdefender.com/solutions/antivirus-comparison.html

    And is way better then avast :)
  • JaniielJaniiel Beginner
    Try to get enything in Amazon, maybe you can find a nice discount
  • Thank You for all the questions and answers here... very informative

    I won't recommend it since there's some useless virus apps in the market to just collect your data. I would suggest going with some paid virus or just use a window defender which is already built-in. I've had never used one but after reading this https://thevpn.guru/avast-antivirus-privacy-concerns/ I'd leave this on you to make this decision.
  • Always go to Intel.

    I have the same problem, It seems that crossfire's menu is stuck at 1024x768 resolution as crossfire's UI sadly can't be scaled, But when I enter any match it works fine with the resolution that I chose in options (1920x1080) and it works just fine, did you try entering a game?

    Why do I feel so offended right now? Look, There's one basic rule in the tech world that everyone should know is NEVER EVER be a fanboy, There are some AMD CPUs that outperform Intel's for a lower price, take for example the ongoing battle between the ryzen 9 3900X and the i9 9900K(S), The Ryzen 9 is cheaper and outperforms intel's i9, It also performs 5% better than the upcoming i9 10th gen...

    Always go for what gives better performance and for a cheaper price
