Yes, I finally got a PSU, replaced it, and put in my new 9800GT
But now I think my CPU is bottlenecking my GPU...why?
I was playing Oblivion on my new card and the specs are maxed out (Along with 4x AA, NO V-SYNC) 1680x1050 resolution and I'm getting 20-35 FPS in the wilderness and 20-30 (60 when I look away from stuff) in towns...I thought this card would perform better, not to mention I clocked it to 635 mhz core clock and 952 mhz memory (I cant go higher o.o)
I thought I would at least get 40 fps in Oblivion, is this normal? Or would my CPU bottle neck the 9800GT
Intel Pentium Dual CPU E2200 (Or E2220??) clocked @ 2.2ghz
XFX Geforce 9800 GT 512 GDDR3
3 Gigs of no-name brand RAM
Windows Vista 32 bit home edition
I also heard that running Oblivion in windowed mode would lower the performance, I tried it, and it did, so what are my options? Deal with it, Tweak it, Buy a new CPU?
