I've replaced my old Intel D955bk with an ASUS M3N78 Pro with an AMD 9850 quad core Black Ed. and replaced my Geforce 7900 GS with a Geforce 9400 GT

I'm aware that the 9400 is not SLI compatible, I have hybrid SLI off in the BIOS.
That being said, I'm getting terrible framerates first noticed on World of Warcraft. 10-20 FPS
So I tried out the Nvidia Adrianne Demo and It was terrible choppy. I've no idea the problem

I was running Windows XP 32bit with 2 2gb sticks of ram maxing out at 3.5gb in my system properties.

Currently I;m installing Windows XP 64bit

If anyone can give me ideas of how I can fix my lag problem itd be appreciated greatly

Hey thanks for the reply...I ended up returning the 9400 gt and getting myself the PNY 9800 GT.

it should be core clock 600Mhz,but in system properties its saying 301 Mhz...
Also, it overheats like crazy....is it something I'm possibly doing wrong? or does this card suck?

...i really dont think it should be this bad....I've tried overclocking it using Rivatuner...but when i do that and run something liek World of Warcraft it seems to shutdown and run back at 301Mhz

first rule of overclocking...stop OC'ing if its causing stability issues...
there so many variables involved ...its part art...part skill... and beyond my ability to help unless I have physical access to the system ...you may want to try here in the hardware forum for someone that has the same video card..
