Oct 3, 2010, 3:12 PM
by the way it has 2 6 pin connectors and i have both attached
Oct 3, 2010, 3:13 PM
Well, usually you can "feel" it whether you attached it right or wrong...
BTW, what is your PSU? brand? model?
Oct 3, 2010, 3:20 PM
er dont know its 450w though could it be that i have a processor with no l3 cache?
Oct 3, 2010, 3:22 PM
Nope, the CPU wont hold you back to this extent.
What games/res are you playing at however?
Oct 3, 2010, 3:26 PM
arma 2 at 1980x1080

Check your CPU usage with task-manager when you're playing the game.
ARMA 2, IIRC is one of the CPU-intensive games, and your CPU
be holding things back.

cool just ordered a phenom x4 black edition 3.4ghz hopefully that should sort it! thanks folks

i do hope that 450w psu is a corsair/silverstone/ocz.
you can't blame the processor as according to you, you're 9800gt was producing better fps than the 460.
