I am ... upset.
I have been toiling away at the bios settings tryin to clock my PC to prevent stutter/lag and such and... either it's windows 7 or ... I am totally missing something.
So.... let's pretend I am completely stupid.... help me tweak my PC to give me the BEST POSSIBLE gaming performance (I don't care about anything else right now, and am willing to buy parts.)
Games I play that are Problematic:
Fallout 3 (1920x1080)
World Of Warcraft
STEAM Games (CounterStrike, HL2
M, Killing Floor)
My system stats - including misc info that may or may not be useful:
Intel Core i7 920
OCZ Platinum 6GB DDR3 1600 RAM
- Timing 7-7-7-24
Seagate Barricuda 7200 RPM 1TB SATA Harddrive
-32 MB Cache
XFX HD 4890 GPU
- 1GB GDDR5
- PCI Express 2.0
- core clock 900mhz
- mem clock 3.9Ghz
Asus 21.5 1080P monitor
ASUS P6T Deluxe Motherboard
- not V2 it's the original. The bios is a little hard to understand, and overclocking has been... challenging... and frustraiting.
PSU: Corsair TX750W Power Supply. . .
Cooler Master HAF 932 with stock fans.
I am running everything at stock right now.. seemed like a good starting place for getting support.
Would like to overclock to 3.66Ghz (should be possible on stock cooling....) would like RAM to get to it's marked settings instead of 9/9/9/etc
Currently the HD is not partitioned - it is C: only with folders to keep things organzied "C:\ Games" etc.
Windows 7 64 bit is installed and up to date as far as I can get it... maybe I need a revision or just to wait for the real release?...\
When helping please provide links when possible because I get distracted easily and when tweaking bios options this could be fatal for the PC.... and don't just say "change this to this" because apparently my bios doesn't have the easy read that has been posted - my settings don't say the same things... and when tweaking ram.. I need to know which 9/9/9 what each one is... because I don't think my bios has them in standard order .... I can't find my link that explained what each one was.
