I was wondering can anyone tell me the most optimal settingsfor games?

PC specs below:

ECS Nforce4 AM2 motherboard
DDR2 400 - 1gig
Nvidia 7800gt
AMD 64 3800+
XP Pro

Now all the games I run are all running between 12 and 25 fps. I have turned off Vsync, and my monitor is set to 1280x960 @ 85mhz. Games my wife and I play are WoW, BF2, and CS:S and HL2. My wife has almost the same issue but her FPS is higher. She runs about 25 to 40 fps. Thanks for you help in advance.

i have a 7800GT in my wifes machine, and i run everything @ 1024x768, 4xAA 8xAF max settings. the games i play on that machine are BF2, CoD2, CSS, and DODS. thye all run really well.

CSS: 50-140 fps
BF2: 45-100 fps
DODS: 40-100 fps
COD2: @ 1280x1024 DX7, 70-200 fps

hope this gives you a better idea, and i use 84.21 forceware. thys seem to the best overall for me, specially in CSS/DODS

Definately use v84.21 from nvidia.com, its what im using for my 7800GTX card. Im also running 1024x768(17" crt), 4aa/8af on mid to max game settings with great frame rates with my current rig in sig.

I just used the last ones that came out at nvidia 93.71 ,and I had no problems with my 7800GTCO,But on some of them games you could use more memory that would help out ,I would run two gigs and they have PC2 6400C4 for around $160.Plus The new AMD2 processors that just came out are not that high for a duall core and build on the 65nm chip and they seem to overclock pretty good,They have the AMD 64 4400+ X2 BrisBane that is dual core clock at 2.3gig and some have overclock as high as 3.2 gig but most around 2.8g to 3g at newegg for $159 plus you get a free game RainBow Six Vegas.But with what you have,I don't know if you have the 3800 single core or the 3800 dual core but to get more performance ,I would overclock it and see how much Higher it will go,you would probally need a after market cooler instead of the stock to keep tempertures down ,but looking at the reviews of the 3800 single core they seem to be good to 2.8gig,but since you just have DDR2 400 ,your memory may not let you go as high unless you loosen the timmings of your memory or set your divider to 333 and increase your voltages a little.Plus overclocking your 7800GT would give you more performance,But some people do not like to overclock and I see there point,But I have to get ever little ounce of extra performance out of anything I buy,so I overclock everthing,I just make sure my tempertures are not to hot and go from there.Every CPU and Video card I have bought I overclocked them from day one and they all still work .

I have a 21" CRT. I'm unable to go past 85mhz for refresh rate. Another question, after installig the drivers is there any setting changes I should make?

I also can't go higher on my 24" Widescreen Sony CRT :( Anyway, shoping for LCD right now.

I'd double your RAM first, if you still got 1GB.
2GB RAM = you will be 100% sure you got no swapping + XP will use more cache to boost disk operations. It should be noticable difference.
I was running my old 7800GT on rig just like yours, before I switched to Intel.
