*Cough* What? Sorry to say but the benchmark tests between AMD and Intel are quite close and intel Muilt Task better :P. On the top end you really aint gonna notice it as a gamer. Even more so with 2 gigs of ram and an X1800XT. (Human eye can only see what 22 frames per second not even?)
Are you using ATI drivers? I always found Third Party ATI drivers to be better then what ATI can actually make on there own so give that a try.
