Default about fps

I got a evga 7800gt and 2 gigs pc3200 dual channel ddr400. When I clock my cpu at 2.2 ghz with ram setting at (auto), i get 155 fps average on source with doing the video stress test, when i overclock to 2.7 ghz with ram speed at 110mhz its 150 fps, what would be the best settings toget the most fps out of my system, another thing, if i dual channel my ram, shouldnt i be getting 400mhz ram speed?

Dual channel dosent mean double the speed.

Reminds me how people once though that if you had a dual core processor that was 2.5 GHz , well since it was dual core it was a 5Ghz chip.....

Your ram is waay under speed.

That ram should be able to do 210 MHz easily and 220 if your lucky.

As for me there are no any different between 150 and 155 FPS. Overclocking can be useful if only ~60FPS

go into your bios and reset the RAM from auto to DDR400 that'll give you the boost you want and make it worth the money you paid for them...

There's no way you'll run at 270MHz FSB at DDR400 speeds.
