I'll try and keep my post to the point. Processor: Athlon 64 3200+ (Newcastle Core) Motherboard: MSI K8T 800 Harddrive: WD 120GB Power Supply: Enermax 350W Graphics card: ATI OEM X800 Pro I'm not a super duper computer person, but know more than the average Joe. I have a couple problems with my machine here, and I've finally gotten pissed off enough to actually do something about it. It's been a year since I bought it! =D Note: I've tried just about EVERYTHING to fix these problems, but no avail. Don't be afraid to suggest the dumbest, "n00biest" mistakes that I could make. =D The first problem is, my Athlon 64 doesn't seem to be as fast as it's supposed to be. Sure, it's fast enough, but I want what I paid for! =D Is there any program than I can use to measure my speed, much like 3DMark for the graphic cards? This is very vague, so I'll come back with more stats and numbers before I try and solve this problem... The second problem is (I've tried just about EVERYTHING to solve this goddamn problem) that I get lower FPS than other X800 Pro users. This isn't just 30-40s, this is into the 100s. So when someone with a 9800 gets 100 fps while I stutter into the 30s and 40s in games such as CS: Source, you can imagine my frustration. C=| Here's what I tried so far: 1. Clean reinstall of latest drivers (ATi): No improvement. 2. Clean reinstall of latest Omega drivers: No improvement. 3. Checked my PSU, rails etc. All seemed to be in perfect condition. 4. Did a 3DMark test, I forgot the score (Will retest soon), but it was the "average" score a X800 Pro user would get. 5. Performed tweaks at www.tweakguides.com, no improvement. 6. Nothing is overclocked. I understand I don't exactly have a lot of information here, but feel free to ask for any information that you need! =D Again, I could've made a STUPID STUPID mistake, so please suggest n00b solutions! Thankyou for your time, Toiletman.
