More about usage game
  1. How many frames per second are you getting at what games and what settings?
  2. 70-80% usage on a quad core is imho clear sign of cpu bottlenecking. There can't be many games that can fully utilize four threads, personally I don't know any...

    Have you tried overclocking the cpu? Though first gen phenoms don't oc much...
  3. i have tried to oc but no difference and i get 30 -80 fps but it rarely goes that high
  4. Try to get the settings on any game you play as best as possible. Enable everything. And see what happens.
