Hm I recently put in a new card into my crappy Dimension 2400, but i think the its bottlenecking... Celeron 2200 Mhz Northwood (400mhz bus speed) (100 FSB) Dell 0G1548 Kingston 512 DDR PC 3200 (400mhz) Mobo makes it 200.... Nividia GeForce FX5500 v.29 256MB 128-Bit (270 mhz) The thing is whenever I run a game the CPU is utilized to 100% all the time. At first i thought well thats natural its running a game after all. Then when i ran DS2 i toned down the graphics by turning off some shadowing and other effects, and even put it into 16-bit; however this only yielded a increase of 1 FPS... So my question is.. is it bottlenecking or is that how its suppose to be running with this rig; and would buying a faster processor for this motherboard (it can support upto 3.06 ghz pentiums@533 mhz) yeild far better results? Or would it be better just the scrape the Mobo and buy a better CPU & Mobo combo so it doesnt underclock my RAM? I just want a processor that will be on par with my video card, no more, since im saving up for a new rig. Thanks for looking!
