Wink Dota 2 Graphics Settings and Commands


Hi guyz. I would like you to help me. :$

These are my default settings: http://noob.hu/2011/12/05/dota2graph.jpg
My PC is: E5200@3GHz (333x9), 2x1 GB 800MHz KIT RAM, GTX460 768MB@800/1600/3900
I have reasonable FPS but at team fights or lots of creeps I get FPS drop around 25 and I don't like it too much, so
What should I turn off to get a better FPS in these situations? (I don't wanna ruin the graphics too much, just get a 30+ at crowded situations)

Also, is there any commands I should type in console?

weird... i say 460 should be able to run that game fairly easly at max settings
lower AA / shadows since these sttings eat lots of GPU power

you're running on W7?? If you are 2gb ram its not enough... Also your proc is old, even if the clock is good the tecnology in it is outdated.

y i know but i cant afford a new mb/cpu/ram
i turned off vsync, shadows low (as i couldnt stand off shadows, it looked weird) and everything that was turnable (i mean it wasnt "not implemented yet"), lightning, etc.
the water low helped a lot in fps, but it is bugged btw..im sure someone already noticed it..

btw i didnt turn off AA, that didnt help much but I need AA

You need to upgrade your cpu and ram to fully utilize your gpu.
