An X2 4200+ and 8800gt can max all games out except cyrsis (at high res anyways) its not the cpu its the gpu. The core duo chips outperform Athlon X2's clock for clock, but not by much and and the core chips are a whole new Architecture, while Amds x2's are still athlon 64's stuck together.

AMD bashing hour? Coming from a guy with a 5000+ BE too. Any ways, like Rican was saying, any AMD dual core can run games no problem. Its the GPU that is holding you back, more then likely because of driver issues. By the way 2 weeks after I bought my X2 4800+ at 76$, it drops down to 60$. For that price, wow. Guess its because the Price of the E7200 was too close.

You should really double check that, because thats not right.

My guess is you have either a driver problem, or need to do a reformat. Or it could even be the card itself.

Driver problems more then likely. If not then like Rican said the card could be damaged as well.

well i just did 3Dmark with the 7950GT and i got a score twice as high as i did with the 8600GS 512, so thats cool, it was worth while taking out half the pc and swapping psu's.
