Your cpu is causing a major problem with your system. You need atleast a 2.7-2.8 oc to not hold your card back too much, also dual core would help. Also that mixed ram setup you have will cause you not to run in dual channel, I recommend a matched 2x1gig dual channel kit, as games are getting very ram dependent. Edit also by the looks of it your stuck with socket 754, a cpu/mobo/ram upgrade would really benefit you, your current system is a major bottleneck to your gfx card.

Could be because you are using DDR ram. Try getting some DDR 2 ram maybe?

Don't think his board supports ddr2 so hes stuck with ddr1 unless he upgrades that. And looking at ecs site it don't support a x2 cpu either. The cpu is probly your major problem you need to try to overclock it some or upgrade your board and cpu to one that has support for ddr1 and 2 so you don't have to buy it all at same time.

No, sell it and go C2D or AM2. Although C2D would be the better choice.

Am I the only one who can read? Let's find the REAL processor requirements

RECOMMENDED REQUIREMENTS



OS: Windows Vista™ Processor: 2 Ghz Pentium 4 class processor (or x64)
I believe his processor is fine.

I think a solution could be to reinstall graphics and motherboard drivers. Then run Aquamark 3. That'll put a number on how well your computer is running. Come back if it's not over 60,000. You don't need to upgrade.

EDIT: That graphics card should run ANYTHING. The problem is not in the hardware. I'm blaming a bad graphics driver, as that card is pretty new. Try finding the newest again, they might have updated.
