Need help to get optimal performance for 6800.
 
Well basically Iíve had my XFX GeForce 6800 graphics card for a couple months now and it was a huge improvement from my old one. So, I didnít notice that it wasnít running that well. My friend who got a GeForce 6600 GT could run games waaay better than mine. So I got to thinking that my card wasnít running at its highest performance. Anyways, here are my specs, could someone help me by suggesting some ways that I could improve my graphics card? Iím kinda new at this stuff too, so if Iím missing anything, just let me know. Thanks!


Pentium 4 CPU 2.40 GHz
1.80 GHz
1 GB RAM
80 GB of Memory

XFX GeForce 6800
AGP 8X
128 MB DDR
450W Power Supply

Windows XP
Service Pack 2

2.4 or 1.8? Either way your CPU isn't exactly a slouch but it could be what is holding it back.

Suggestions:

1. Make sure you have the latest driver version.
2. Try unlocking the extra pipes and vertex shader with RivaTuner http://downloads.guru3d.com/
3. Try overclocking your core and memory if you can (RivaTuner).

A faster CPU could help some but will not make a huge difference. Try the above first.
