I just bought a XFX geforce 6800 GT last week. When running the doom 3 timedemo in high at 1152 x 864, no filtering. I am only getting 37 frames. I think that is really sucks! I have the all the latest drivers for all my hardware. Is this fine for my hardware in doom 3?

Windows xp
786megs of ram
Athon XP 2000+
sound blaster A2
GigaByte GA-7N400 Pro2

I think your CPU is limiting it.

How can you prove this without putting the card in another machine??

He's right. Doom 3 needs a very fast CPU. Even a 6800 U EE wouldn't give you any better FPS.

You can prove this by using a different video card. But by hands on experience, I can tell you that your CPU indeed is slow for doom 3.

i have a GigaByte GA-7N400 Pro2 motherboard, i think that fastest athon Xp they have is a 3200+. Will this upgrade to 3200+ be fine? Should i just buy a athon 64, motherboard, memory.

I have an XP 3000+ chip and it's good enough for DIII on high at 1024x768 with 4xAA and 8xAF with the occasional dip to the low 30's with loads of action on screen. I have it mildly oc'd to 2.3Ghz up from 2.1 also..
