I am running an amd athlon 64 3000+ ht 2x 1 gig kingston ram XFX 6600GT agp 2x 40gb sata HD creative sound blaster 24bit sound card 350w power supply a-bit mother board

Well on BF2 i get from 30-75frames with low-med-high settings and i get about 30frames on high-ultrahigh settings and i ws just wondering if im getting the performance for my money cause i have been told that my computer should be running faster on those games is it true. also can i have some help with upgrading like you know the best name brand products besides switching to pci-e video card and mobo.

That's all you can realistically expect from a 6600GT. Best AGP card you can get is a 7800GS, which will be a massive improvement, but not the cheapest upgrade around.

For you system, that sounds about right.

What resolution are you playing at?

3000+ HT. HT is an Intel technology known as Hyper-Threading. Your AMD does not have it. ;)

Unless of cource, you are talking about Hyper Transport Bus. But that would be irrelevant.

As for performance. That sounds about right. Your processor and graphics card are lacking for todays modern games, unfortunatly. Not to mention you have an AGP motherboard, so that cancels out any real options for the future.

Hah! That usually significantly reduces your FPS. And, I hate to break it to you, the 3000+ isn't all that good. I would upgrade to the AMD Athlon 64 3800+ 2.4Ghz and overclock it to 2.6Ghz. As for the graphics card, you may want to relap your heatsink and use some better cooling options. Like ATi, a lot of the older nVIDIA cards weren't as stable as the new 7 series GPUs. The cooler... the better.

Try running them at 1024x768 once, you will see a improvment without a big loss of quality.

Problem with that is anti-aliasing... if he's using an LCD monitor, than anything lower than 1024x1280(or reversed) will look pixelated. If your graphics card can handle it, you can lower it to 1024x768 and run Anti-Aliasing x2 or x4 - which might get rid of that.

Yea i use a monitor that only supports 1280x1024 or else it looks like crud also another thing money dosent grow on trees and im planning to get a 4000+ series amd processor next year and pice motherboard and video card. Also is there any ways to lower my video card temp cause it idles at 55C with a case fan and without it runs 88C @8x agp setting and no im not getting an ati cause of shader problems with games im planning to replace the case fan with a 120mm 150cfm fan or a 220cfm fan but need a cheap way to lower temp for now
