so maybe a new cpu along with a new mobo to OC that cpu and an aftermarket heatsink to safely OC that cpu. and also maybe an aftermarket heatsink to OC your 4890, which even at stock speeds should have no problem handling bad company 2.
well i can run BFBC2 on medium-high with my current build, but i dont have good fps, when im running World of Warcraft on ultra, i usually have like 8-14 fps, when my one friend has a gtx 260, and gets 30-60fps in the same spot. i wasnt able to figure out what might be causing the slowness on my own, which is why i came here, and it seems some of you think my build should work fine, but it just doesnt seem up to par to me. i thought maybe it was something with my specific proccesor. I read that something with the Phenom gets slowed because of something called TLB(Translation lookaside buffer). but quite frankly, i have no idea
