Hardware and performance

So I am having quite poor FPS currently, my computer is a bit outdated (will post specs further down) so this is expected however I did not expect to have 30 FPS in a essentially empty scene… Is this normal? Adding some poly further kills it fast.

I’m currently working on a project to create a real world park in 3D and add some future details then showing this with oculus rift and need to know if I should expect this bad framerate or if I could do something to improve it, you get quite nauseous with low FPS and oculus rift.

Current specs:

AMD Phenom II x4 965 BE 3.5Ghz

8GB ram (1600mhz)

XFX HD 5770 1GB.

I assumed the problem was the GPU as it is under the specified requirements and have ordered a AMD r9 270x to improve the matter but perhaps the problem lies somewhere else?

GPU is your biggest problem right now. The CPU isn’t great but it shouldnt be a problem except for when you want to bake lighting.

Alright, thanks. :slight_smile:
