View Full Version : Loading speed
I was just wondering, besides the hard drive does anything affect loading speed significantly in games? I.E. Half life 2 loads pretty slowly for my tastes, is there anything I can do to minimize the load time?
what are your system specs?
Pentium 4 with HT 3.0 Ghz
512 MB ram
80 gig 7200 harddrive

defrag maybe? Your system should load things fine. Although 512mb ram anymore is pushing it.... 1gig should really become standard now.
Yea, its pretty unfragmented...about the ram though, Does more ram really help with load times? I always thought it'd help more with choppiness in game but not the loading time directly.
More memory definetely helps with load times. Move up to 1gb and you should definetely see your load times decrease.
