Major performance problems
Originally, I had the following system:
Intel P4 3.2 GHz
1.5 GB DDR RAM
ATi Radeon 9800 Pro 128MB
I upgraded the graphics card to an ATi Radeon X800 XT Platinum Edition 256MB, but I didn't notice a significant increase in performance.
I ran 3D Mark 2005 Free Edition, and was only scoring about 4200, when comparible systems were scoring 5800.
Since then I have changed the power supply to a 400W Aerocool supply, changed the motherboard and changed the processor, all thinking these might be the problem.
However, the system still only scores 4100 on 3D Mark. The only original components are the RAM (which I've swapped out before with no increase in performance), and the Hard Drive.
I can't see how the hard drive though would bring the system to such a low score.
I tested the above system with a 2.4 P4 chip, and it scored 4050.
I have the latest drivers for the motherboard and the graphics card, and can't think what else to do.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
