Default FPS On My New 8800 GTS 640 MB Question!

Hello,

I bought me an 8800 GTS 640 MB made by evega, bought from newegg. Just came in few day's ago. Installed on my xps 600, 600 watt power, 2 gb 667 mhz ram, P4 HT 3.4, and 250 gb harddrive, Temp stay's around 50-60 C. Clocks are standered to Core: 513, and memory 792. Work's good, just by reading some other threds people have said they get 200 fps on an source stress test with all settings maxed, And when I do the stress test i only get 133 fps max with settings not even maxed out. Just though something was someone off in that. And perfomence seems off. Any info on this would be great. Thank You!

Your CPU is limiting your performance period........

Well shoot, I kinda thought that may have been the problem. Guess it's time for an upgrade in that department. Thanks for the help.

I don't think your DELL motherboard can support the C2D line of CPU's so you may have to buy a new motherboard.
