Hello,

System NFO:
Processor: Intel(R) Pentium(R) Dual CPU E2180 @ 2.00GHz
Number of processor cores: 2
Memory: 2 GB (DDR2 SDRAM)
Operating system: Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit
BIOS: Phoenix Awardbios v6 00pg
Mainboard: Chipset type Intel 945GC Express
Display adapter type Intel(R) 82945G Express Chipset Family
Internal Graphic Processor: (WAS) Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 (now disabled)
Bus Speed: 800 MHz
Hard Drive Interface: Serial ATA II

Graphics Card Upgrade:
Graphics ATI Radeon HD 5450

(Actual Card: DIAMOND AMD Radeon HD 5450 512MB D3 HDV GDDR3 PCIE)

Display adapter driver version Catalyst 8.951.0.0
Primary monitor resolution 1440x900
DirectX version DirectX 10

I have built many CPU’s in the past... However it has been a few years.
So far, so good. I just finished updating all drivers for the card as well as the system itself.
To make sure I get what I can out of the new card and the system itself I need some guidance on optimal setup. Mainly on the CPU’s BIOS.

Which are: Phoenix Awardbios v6 00pg

The ATI Radeon HD 5450 is plugged into an Expansion Slot that is PCI Express x16 x 1

This system will be used for design work. And sadly... some World of Warcraft!
I realize it is a low-end graphics card! Sorry. It is a rough economy!

Please! Any help with this matter would be greatly appreciated!! PLEASE & Thank you!

Marty.
