Definitely get another 2gb of ram, though you'd probably be better off getting 2 sticks of ddr2 1066 that are 2gb each, and maybe overclock that phenom to 3GHz, i wouldnt push it much harder than that though. 2gb of ram in a system like this is definitely a bottleneck though

2x 2gb = 4gb total Sorry for the misunderstanding.

Okay 3ghz for the cpu. I'll go for OC service nearby, he'll do it and I'll post what they do just incase he might be wrong? Should ram be overclocked or just get another 2gb stick of 800mhz or 1066mhz if it'll work with 800mhz?

CoreTemp - Added a fresh batch of MX-4



I just installed my brand new Evga 560 Ti FPB, I went on max settings (everything on and high) with PhysX on and it lags...I thought 560 Ti would be good for my monitor. Added in monitor on first post btw.
