NVIDA 7300 GT 512 MB AGP issues... - Page 3

post #21 of 54
I'm just guessing that your CPU is bottlenecking it, because (I'm just guessing) Warcraft is a pretty CPU intensive game. Also, have you tried overclocking your 7300GT? I have one in my Ex Cineris rig, which is has a 2Ghz (stock) Athlon XP 2800+, and the 7300GT is overclocked from 350Mhz/333Mhz (core/memory) to 580Mhz/380Mhz with the garbage stock cooler reseated with some decent thermal paste. With that rig I can play CS:S at 1280x1024 with all settings maxed and get about 30 FPS.

I'm now thinking it's your RAM. Can you post a detailed description of how many sticks you have, and what capacity and speeds they run at?

Also, how do you get that glossy skin in XP? It's been bugging me ever since I've first seen it.

For your glossy theme

It's the media center theme.
