If you want to overclock further tell me il help you with that but first u need to monitor your cpu and core temps,use this software,it's called hwmonitor. Keep me posted!. Dude with regard to dragon age origins its your graphics card holding you back especially at your resolution. You might want to look in for a graphics card upgrade and stick with the processor you have.
What makes you point to the graphics card? I mean every since I began down this path people have been pointing at every component and saying: That HAS to be the problem!
My goal at present, is to achieve a steady forty frames per second in Dragon Age: Origins. In one of the most intensive areas I was oscillating between twenty five or so and thirty. After the overclock it\s generally thirty with almost instantaneous drops to twenty eight or twenty nine and back to thirty.
Problem is, I don't have a lot of money to throw at this problem. I figure I can afford to upgrade on thing, so I need to make absolutely sure it's the thing that will give me the greatest performance boost.
