if your not performing well in games, its your ram. a gig is best.

They FxF7800gt (Well all 7800's) Have alot of headroom for OC'ing, just make sure to watch the temps and look for artifacts.

If you're encountering problems while gaming, it's definetly your amount of RAM, or your CPU speed.

Do this:

"NVidia has even built overclocking settings into its latest drivers. To enable them, open the Windows Registry editor by going to Start, Run, typing regedit, and pressing Enter. Navigate to "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/NVIDIA Corporation/Global/NVTweak/," right-click the right pane of the editor and choose to add a new DWord called coolbits. Edit that entry and give it a hex value of 3, then close your Registry editor. The NVidia tab under your PC's advanced display properties settings will now feature a "Clock Frequency Settings" page that allows you to adjust memory and graphics chip clock speeds for your board. Click the "Detect Optimal Frequencies" button if you want the utility to try to find safe overclocked settings for your graphics board."

ya u really shouldnt have bought that cpu cause its old and outdated u shouldve gotten a 939 amd 64 cpu, theres no need to make ur vid card any better because it can play all the new games out now with all the settings at max if ur lagging and games arent running well then its because the rest of ur system isnt very good

yeah bad bad choice on the cpu.. should of asked us before u bought it. the old socket 754 series is outdated and doesn't hold up to the architecture of the socket 7 series very well.. My advice to you have atleast a gig of ram. (doesn't matter the brand regardless of what everyone tells you, yes some perform better than others but dont need that right now) buy a socket 939 cpu with a socket 939 mobo (higher than 3000+) and you will be good to go.

Get a socket 939 motherboard
Get a socket 939 AMD 64 3500
Get 1G of OCZ ram (2x512MB)
DOnt upgrade your graphics card

Then you will be in heaven.

With those specs you won't really be able to take advantage of that great card.
