at 1680x1050 perhaps slightly. what games are specifically noticing low performance?

notice the the max difference in that particular set of games like 2-3%, the X4 970 being comparable to your processor with a 200 mhz difference in clock speed, CPU is not the end all for gaming in the vast majority of games.

Overclock it to 3.6GHZ. Beyond 3.6 the X4s dont seem to show any performance increase.
