This will give you a nice baseline to work with.

Good luck
yea this is where its at, thanks for the reply man Ive been looking at that Gogars OC bit and just tried one of the things from it, which was putting my CPU multiplier down from 9.0 to 8.5 and the FSB at somewhere around 280 which is the highest ive ever had it.

This is the best its run ever, the bottleneck has been reduced, i can have sound on high and a better res now with decent fps in cod4 which is all i wanted.

It makes me think about some strange thing my CPU has done now and again which is to set itself to only 4.5 multiplier which makes no sense to me, but maybe thats to deal with the bottleneck i dunno......

Thanks again, this is the sort of info I was after, now I know what I need to play with to get it running better.

LokiIX, no you do not have to raise the voltage on the AGP slot. To my knowledge raising the voltage actually doesn't do anything for these newer cards. The AGP card regulates the voltage as needed. Older AGP cards would benefit from it sometimes though. Just keep it at stock (1.5volts). It's been mentioned that voltage changes to the slot could damage the card and some have said raising it to 1.7volts has helped stability in terms of "video card crashes". I would leave it at stock if you aren't experiencing any problems

Hope this helps
