  • low FPS with 8800gtx? need help

    ok i just got rid of my 7900gt ko superclocked for a new evga 8800gtx !!!

    well heres my system specs

    CPU:AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+ slot AM2 OVERCLOCKED Muti 11X HTT 226 at 2.49 Ghz CPU Cooling: Freezer 64 Pro idle 34 Full load 48
    MOBO:ASUS M2N-SLI Deluxe Socket AM2 NVIDIA nForce 570
    GFX card:EVGA 8800GTX 768MB 384-bit GDDR3 128 Stream Processors OVERCLOCKED ROP 625mhz, Shader 1464mhz, Memory 1030mhz
    PSU OCZ GameXStream 700watt
    RAM:OCZ Gold Series 2GB 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 667 (PC2 5400)
    CASE:ASPIRE X-Navigator Silver Aluminum ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
    HDD:2 Western Digital Caviar 250GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s In RAID 0 Total HDD space = 465 GB
    OS:Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005
    Monitor: 2 Acer 20" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor 1680X1050 Cloned

    now i had the same set up but just with the 7900gt ko supcerclocked. i had my bf2142 settings set to all high but geometries at medium and AA at 2X and i play at 1680X1050.

    when i had the 7900 i would get around 45 fps in a full 64 server and drop to 30-35fps during a big battle/firefight.

    now i get the same fps with the 8800gtx with the same settings in bf2142? i may get 5 fps or so gain overall from the 7900 but thats it.

    i was expecting to get at least 55fps all around and see it drop to 40 fps with a fight but i guess im wrong.

    Am i not seeing any fps gain because of my cpu?? i know i have a AMD and i do plan on buying a E6750 c2d very soon (thinking about saving more to get the Q6600) and i know that will help my overall gameplay in all games but would it help me get out of this hole that im in for 2142??

    What is most strange is that you didn't see better performance before you got the GTX. I have roughly the same system (check sig) and play on all high at around 80fps.
