8800gt not performing as good as it should

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Okay first off heres my specs:
2gb 5300
amd 4400+ (not OC)
evga 8800gt (not OC, brand new)

I'm only getting around 70 fps on office. 50 on dust. Other people with the same card I've seen get closer to 150 on both. Im playing 1440x900 max settings. Im positive that I should be running better than 50-70 frames a second.

Should I try overclocking?
What can I do to improve this, I still want to keep max graphics.
In WoW i get around 80 fps too.

Overclock your processor and graphics card. You may have a bottleneck. but I don't know much about AMD processors.

It is probably your CPU holding you back. Try overclocking it a little and you should see some increase.

What motherboard do you have? You may not be able to OC the CPU, based on the motherboard you have.

Ya, you won't be able to OC your CPU with it. Sorry to burst your bubble... You could go into the BIOS, and make sure that the PCI-E slot your graphics card is plugged into is running at 16x, just in case it isn't. I got higher FPS than that with an x1950Pro and a Brisbane 3600+, so something is probably wrong.
