Tell me what to do? - Page 2

Divorce box, I like that.

Is there a story you'd like to share with the group?

I bought my 3200+ venice and my gigabyte Mboard for $210 4 months ago so you should be able to do something similar.

You can get the venice to OC to 2.5-2.7ghz on air so it would be a damn good upgrade for around $200.

Don't spend that $200 on ram or a videocard, you just wouldn't get as much out of your $200.

Do you have a memory divider option in your bios? Sometimes they go by percentages. You should be able to get past 200mhz fsb with dividers. Also keep an eye on your chipset temp. Mine was getting so hot it would burn my finger, before I added a fan. Also with an unlocked multi you might get better results at stock fsb with a higher multi. Have you tried 166x14?

GOOD LUCK

P.S. A better video card is your best bet for an upgrade. For 180 I got the evga 6800 and it's great. Far Cry, with latest patch all setting ULTRA high 8xaa and hdr@7, I get in excess of 100fps, around 50 with a lot of action on the screen.

To turn on hdr simply go to console and type \
_hdrrendering 7 or whatever setting you like, 1-11, 0 is off of course.

NOTE: this is only "supported" for nvidia 6 and 7 series cards.
