why so slow? 8800GTX

post #1 of 36
Thread Starter 
Hi Everyone

I have a PNY 880 GTX - Overclocked Edition. You can see my computer specs below! When I run 3dmark the first test I am getting such low fps. What would have to upgrade to make this card faster. I will be getting 2 gigs more of ram, will that help? Is my only option to get a new MB and CPU? If so which one would be best on a budget. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You're bottlenecking. Your CPU is too slow to handle the power of teh GTX. rawr.

Have you consider overclocking your processor?

Right now, your CPU is the main factor. A single core will prevent your GTX from running at its max potential, I would consider going dual core to see some optimal results.

As I can see your cpu is oc'd already, basiclaly in my opinion, spend the cash in a new processor, but it all depends on the socket and the availablility if the cpu's on that socket, which i'm presuming is 939. If' your able to find a 3700+ it overclocks well and smokes that 3000+ with oc'ing and also since it has 1Mb l2 cache

the additional gig of RAM won't hurt, but you really need a new CPU

His/Her CPU is already overclocked? If so, I would also recommend getting a new processor. You'll get big frames if you get a stronger (dual core maybe) processor.

Though, I am no AMD guy, I cannot say which is good.

If you have a 754 (Most Venice are 939 though) your best bet is to go 939. For around $80 you can get an X2, or around $130 an Opty 165.
