I've been trying to upgrade my PC so I can run Battlefield 2. It's got a Gigabyte GA-8IDX motherboard with 768Mb RAM and a PNY GeForce 6200 graphics card (upgraded feom Ti4200). It did have a P4 1.8GHz CPU but I've just replaced that with a P4 Celeron 2.6GHz.
The trouble is that the PC actually seems to run slower with the new CPU, I'm getting a lower frame rate than with the 1.8GHz chip. I've tried flashing the BIOS with the latest version but it hasn't made any difference.
According to the Gigabyte support website the board should support up to 2.8GHz and this particular chip is supported. Any idea where I'm going wrong?
