Heck gouing from 133 to 166 FSB gives me about a 7% performance gain on my system. FSB makes a huge difference.
Tell me something, I have a friend with a nForce2, Radeon 9700Pro, AthlonXP 2400, DDR 400, overclocked to 2.2Ghz and a FSB of 193Mhz. he gets around 35fps in on the second check point in the farcry demo.

See my specs below, I get around 30fps with no overclocking, so the FX5900U is not "pitiful" at all.
AthlonXP 2600+ / nForce2 Asus A7N8X-X / PNY GeForce FX5900 Ultra / 1024Mb Samsung Ram /nForce Sound / Hansol 920D Plus 19" monitor / Lite-On 32x12x40 / 2x Maxtor HD 40Gb/80Gb / nVidia 7174 driver / Gnome 2.10.1 / Kernel / Slackware 10.0
