People all over are reporting problems with this card. Something to do with not supplying enough voltage? There were threads on XS about it.

Basically the amd x2 doesnt compare to a core2 duo. Your Cpu is holding you back because it cant keep up with your graphics card. Its like putting a 3" exhaust on a civic when it doesnt have the horsepower to justify it.

Dont mess with the PCI-E clock, That could fry your mobo. If you can i would OC your processor to at least 3.2. That should take care of MOST of the bottleneck... intel > AMD

What that means is basically your processor isn't fast enough to keep up with your video card... Try OC'ing to 3.2...

3.2 is impossible with the G1, atm its set at 2.82 and i will probably keep it at that.is there anyway to determine if there is actually a bottleneck

Pretty much every thing that get done on your pc goes through the CPU hence why it’s called the Central processing unit. So if you have a faster CPU like the Core 2 you’ll get faster frame rates.

I have a different take on what might be wrong with your system. I see that you’ve overclocked your CPU, which is good but what kind of cooling are you running ?
Because it’s highly possible if not probable that your CPU is not Orthos “CPU Stress” stable and therefore your CPU is making incorrect calculations( mistakes) that need to be recalculated which will slow it down and reduce your framerates

I'm getting around 10k with my BFG 9600GT, but thats at all stock speeds (cpu/ram/videocard all stock). I'm having some problems overclocking my CPU and ram and even the videocard. But I believe this is due to either my powersupply (most likely) or my motherboard.

I had no problems when I was running my low end nvidia 6200 with overclocks on everything. Once I upgraded to a more power hungry videocard, I noticed a few problems. Same as most mentioned. A 400-450 watt powersupply can run a 9600 GT, just don't try any overclocking unless you have a top notch powersupply, which I don't.

And to the poster who said an E6400 is a junk CPU, I beg to differ. I love mine. I can OC it to 3Ghz on intel stock air (with a little arctic silver thermal paste) and it's stable 24/7.

Thats a bargain. Not compared to the new e8400 however.
