:shock: well ok then! I guess there is something to this overclock phenomenon. Since my main system is offline my backup 2.4B/845PE system is providing the primary duties.

I never much dabbled with it, it's been my "just leave it alone" system. But when I installed Painkiller is was a killer pain to play on. About ~60 frames when the action got heavy and sometimes the load was so much it hard crash the system and the whole damn thing would reboot!

:twisted: well! After 30 minutes of Trial & Error with the BIOS settings I finally got her stable at 2.7GHz (600FSB) 1.575v with some Corsair DDR400 "LL" stuff. I think they have BH5 under the hood. Just a guess. Pimpin that 5:4 ratio it's at DDR375 speeds with a full 2-2-2-6. And the result is a drop kick 100+ frames now. 80 when the action gets heavy. Whole damn game runs smoother, and what a game! Very Serious Sam like. Guess all ya need is a Radeon 9500 Pro level card to play any game on the market. Pffffft.

you can tell the diffrence from 100fps and 60fps?

isnt live video like 30fps?

no, i dont think you can tell the difference btw 100fps and 60fps.

well, if all you need is a 9500pro level card, just get a 9600pro and o/c it to xt speeds. or try a 9800se and softmod!

You can if those are average frame rates, as long as it's assumed that the min frame rate is proportional to the average and less than (IMO) 45FPS.

I run FRAPS to monitor the fram rates and it was around 60 at times. The refresh rate is 85 and that's all I really want. So this 40-60 stuff sucked. The game simply plays smoother and doesn't crash anymore. It's as if I've given the beast what it wants .... MORE POWER. :) more like more resources. What a hog.

Yes an no. It's 30 full frames per second but you're actually seeing 60 interlaced fields per second.
