Default nVidia GeForce 9800 GTX

I just bought one of these and I figured I would be able to play a lot of my games on high. Nope. I can run World of Warcraft on High with about 15-20 FPS while sitting still. with Flight Sim X I run about 10FPS with everything on high. Crysis runs OK, FPS I do not know as I haven't figured out how to display them yet. But it seems some of the textures are not loading. Also with Far Cry 2 (The game that came with the card, is really jerky on high, With this one as well I haven't figured out how to display the FPS but I'd guess 5-10 FPS Range.

included are some snips of my DXDiag file.

I really hope someone can assist me with this problem. Also I have done a wipe of all ATI Drivers I had on here before the install on the nVidia drivers with Drivercleaner.net

Your running the 9800GTX+ on a Sempron processor. That's your problem. The CPU is bottlenecking your GPU to extreme amounts. Especially if it's a Socket 939.

yep, big time bottleneck, even though i hate to say it. the s939 3400 runs 2ghz, the AM2 3400 runs 1.8ghz. of course....the socket 754 sempron runs 2ghz as well. that would definitely be a problem. in any event a sempron is not made for gaming. its an office chip.

How much money are you willing to spend ?

I have a phenom x3 and 4gb RAM with one of these cards and get around 228 fps in counter strike.

I got AMD cause there relitivly cheaper for mid range performance. Alought I want to move to intel for the better over clocking.

I am willing to spend 300-400$ for the Mobo, Proc, and Ram. I was looking at a AMD Phenom x4 AM2+ Socket, ASUS Mobo, and 2 sticks of Kingston Hyper X 2gbx2 DRR2 1066 RAM. Came to a total of about 275. But I want a good gaming computer, would Intel be better?

If you can get the extra cash go intel, They are much better overclockers. I've always wanted a Q9550 good speeds of them chips and grate to overclock.

Don't go DDR3 just now, the speeds of clock timings just aint good enough. Stick with DDR2 1066Mhz, and get a motherboard with a 780i chipset. This will keep you 45nm and ready to overclock with good temps, with low power usage.

780i motherboards suck, to say the least. if you want to go intel (and overclock), get a p45 chipset.
i dont know about the X3 chips...but i have a q9450 and one of our mods here has a phenom II quad and it pretty much pummels my quad in the graphics processing department.

^ what in the world??? pummels your quad? if so then there is something wrong. cause my q9300 overclocked is only about 600 3dmarks off from his phenom II. and rican is using XP for benchmarks, i am using vista ultiamte our scores would be the same of i had xp too.
