You can get way better cards for the money, such as the HD3850, just return it and make up some excuse like "Oh, noes, I accidentally bought at PCI-Express card, when I wanted a AGP card, my bad ".

yeh i think its gota be the ram and cpu. My system runs crysis benchmark at 40fps at 1024x768 with all medium but sounds and post processing on high.

And that is only using 1 card because performance goes down when i enable sli for crysis lol.
