Intel D945GPM / Video Sluggish

  1. This is my specs:

    Intel D945GPMLKR
    Pentium D 840 3.2gGHz DT 800FSB
    OCZ 1024MB PC6400 DDR2 800MHz
    GeForce 7300 GS PCI 256DDR2
    Windows XP Media Center
    Onboard sound
    500 PSU

    I haven't tried installing the latest bios that were released 9.11.06, but I will try that tonight. My question is that for some reason when I try to run games like Battlefield 2, City of Heroes it seems a bit sluggish. BF2 I was running at 800x600 and it was sluggish.

    My older machine spec:
    Abit IC7-g mobo
    P4 HT 2.6
    Audigy1
    1024MB pc3200 DDR1
    GeForce 6800GT AGP

    Ran BF2 1024x768 high on all setting ran like a champ. Just wondering if you guys had these simliar issue and got them resolved.

    I can't imagine it is a BIOS issue. If anything, it would be graphics card driver issue. I don't know to what extent this is your problem but onboard sound uses some of your 1GB of RAM and BF2 is one game that really needs a lot of RAM.

    The second computer also has a better video card.
