    ok this is strange

    ohh ok well since the 9800GTX is basically the same 8800GTS 512 , i wont worry about it that much anymore . and i oc'ed the cpu further to 2.8ghz and got 9.8K points. so yeah i think its cpu related and will get a new one when i have more money.

    ok this is strange

    no i didn't overclock my cpu it was at stock speeds. and shouldn't GPU-Z say PCI-E 2.0 16X @ 8X if it was running at pci-e 2.0 8x?. and i just overclocked my cpu minorishly (%6) and i got another 300 points (9.6k points with the cpu @ 2.75ghz and the video card also oc'ed). and ill get my old 8800GTS 320 back next week so ill see if it is a video card related problem.

    ok this is strange

    yeah i checked my bios it doesn't have any options for that in it, and yeah ill try updating it somewhere this week. oh and sorry my motherboard is a Gigabyte MA-GA790X-DS4
  5. i downloaded GPU-Z a couple of days ago and i noticed that my 8800GTS 512 was running at PCI-E 16X @ 8X. i also did some 3dmark 06 tests and i only got like 9k points at stock and 9.3K overclocked to 775/1936/1024 (core/shaders/mem). is this normal?? (also the 3dmark 06 test were the default free version settings at 1280X1024). also my current system is AMD X2 5000+ @stock 2.6ghz, 4gb 800mhz corrsair XMS2 ram, MA-GA790X-DS4,EVGA 8800GTS 512 and a goodish 480w power supply (ive checked power requirements it should be fine). so yeah any help or advice would be appreciated . link thingy http://www.techpowerup.com/gpuz/3p852/

    sure that'll play games but station XG's are expensive , and the laptop will not be future proof.

    P4 Overheating

    mmm... well i dropped my very first computer (a free PII lol) and i still worked except the case was all bent and stuff. o and i used to have a 3.0Ghz P4 which also over heated i just replaced fan/hsf (because the fan is basically attached to the HSF) with the defult and used a higher quality thermal paste that worked for me.
