Thanks. I was trying to get good stuff for a low price. I paid about 1250 for everything including the monitor.
I think I just need to spend more time tweaking it and working on the OC

Can you post your overclock settings, also 3dmark06 scores (total score and cpu score)? That way some of us can compare our settings and may be able to offer any tweaking advice, etc
EQ Overkill :p

Ok, after running 3DMark06 and freezing on the first test, i took off all overclocking. I still had ram the ram specified to 2.0V 5-5-5-15, those are the specs on the box, but not default mobo.
Ran the 3Dmark06 again:
10307 total
4774 SM 2.0
4840 SM 3.0
2282 CPU

the results were showing 3014Mhz cpu speed (default clock is 3.0)
and 3584 MB ram. Holy crap what happened to 500mb? i should have 4!

now that i have the default bench, i'll slowly go through the OC and do it properly.

^ 32bit OS only allow that much, XP 64 bit can use all 4gb. I hate to say it...but it's your cpu. I had a AMD X2 4600+ oc'd to 2.9ghz, then bought a quad and without even overclocking it, I noticed my gaming FPS went up. After going to 3.4 the difference was OMGNOWAY***BBQSAUCE.

A 32 bit OS lets you have a maximum of 4GB for both system and video RAM. Because your video card has 512mb of RAM, only 3.5GB of system ram could be used.
Essentially the other 500mb is useless unless you either install a 64 bit OS or replace the card with less video ram (which is something you wouldn't want to do)

Why not install Vista 64?

i have an upgrade disk to vista, but unfortunately it's strictly 32-bit.
My video card is 640 MB, so does that mean that that is cut down by the ram?
Should i try just running 2gb ram until I can get a hold of a 64-bit system? So that my gpu ram isn't limited?

Those scores look about right, I say this because we nearly have the same CPU, have the same mobo and nearly the same video card, lol. I scored 9200 in 3Dmark06 and my CPU score was about 1900 so that looks right to me.

I love my computer personally, it was a HUGE upgrade from a Pentium 3 with a gig of RAM and a Radeon 9250, lmao.

You said you updated your BIOS, so you know that your board can technically support AM2+ Phenoms, right? Upgrade if you want more from your computer. I am definitely going for a 9850 when the time is right since my board can support it.

Oh and good luck overclocking that 6000, the higher you go on the AMD dual-cores, the harder it is to get anymore juice out of them. You should've gotten a 5000 BE and overclocked it. They can reach 3.2-3.5ghz easily and cost a bit less.

And a word of warning, I personally wouldn't use ANY of those programs that came with your motherboard. PC Probe II and AI Gear are complete garbage. I was having BSOD's after I built it a couple months in and would get them randomly once every couple weeks. I tried everything and eventually figured out somehow that those programs were the cause, uninstalled them and haven't had a BSOD since(that was last November)

Video RAM actually has nothing to do with memory RAM The memory on a video card is MOSTLY used for handling large resolutions to process all the crap going on.
