You can NOT be serious! I went from a P4 2.8GHz computer to my 3700 and notice a HUGE improvement in gaming. BHD, DFX and BF2 all ran and loaded much faster. I have unreal FPS in all of them. You must have something not quite right amigo. And the video settings ought to set to max on all of them. Without going into the BIOS setup but keeping it simple here is a question. What version of the nVidia drivers are you using?(video and chipset) Also go to get CPU-Z
and post a shot of the CPU, memory and SPD tabs.
