So. I ran a 3dmark06 test and the results weren't so hot.

4565 to be exact

It's just my Proc being a MAJOR bottleneck to my 8800gt. Giving a Formula 1 race car vegetable oil for gas.

I have my 8800gt clocked to

Core: 700
Shader: 1750
Mem: 999 (x2)

it has pretty good temps. avg of 45C idle and 50-high 60 when playing Crysis for several hours.

I have a dell dimension 9100 so OCing the proc is out of the question.

help?

oh, Crysis is rock solid at 1680x1050 with 4x AA and everything high except CPU dependent fields. (particles, etc)
Looks smooth to me anyways.. but then again. i used to game with a X300 :)


any suggestions would be helpful.

thanks, but I already have those settings enabled (more or less)

does anyone else have any other suggestions?

I was also wondering, would a PhysX card improve framerates? or is that just for supported games?
