  1. The Pentium D is a rather out dated CPU. it's likely a bottleneck for your system.

    You may also have a high resolution, which would also stress your video card.
  2. Slow cpu, I cooked one of my boards pushing a crappy 805 to 3.5ghz and performance was crap any way. If your board supports a Core 2 Duo then upgrade and the new cpu will pay for it's self in power savings alone and the performance is worth it.
  3. Your setup is decent enough except CPU, so get better cpu... :)
  4. Did you just get the 9800gt or have you had it for a while?
  5. Although the CPU is a bottleneck he should be getting more fps in WoW at least, is that on full settings on wow? have you tried enabling triple buffering?
  6. hey javidrazor,
    U have good system.
    But your CPU is not good enough.
    So u better change it.

    Tripple buffing is generally only beneficial when you have v-sync enabled. If it's not enabled, then can hurt latency.
