Well I can't get a new video card until it gets a lot later in the year. I think I'm going to go with either the ATi X850XT 256mb, or a NVidia 7800GS 256mb.

My CPU is not overclocked, but dxdiag recognizes it as 2.1GHz.

for between $200-$250 u could get a new X1800GTO which is more updated than the X850XT.

and about ur CPU bein at 2.1GHz, do u have s754 or s939. The s939 3200+s are at 2.0Ghz and the s754 3200+s are at 2.2GHz so either the program or w.e is mess up or ur declocked(dont kno if theirs such a thing) or overclocked. Try lookin at it through windows or try PC Wizard (excelent program for temp readins and everything)

In BIOS and CPU-Z, my CPU is 2045MHz, and the FSB is 204MHz. This is straight from the box, nothing is changed.

Maybe DXDIAG detects it as 2.1GHz because it is more than 2.0GHz and it gets confused...I dunno, but it isn't 2000MHz.
