Performance seems slow after upgrade

  Whogo 19:14 14 Jun 2008

I just upgraded my PC with an Intel Core2 Quad 9300, Nvidia 8800 GT using an EVGA nForce 750i SLI motherboard.

I am running Win XP SP2 and the machine is free of viruses, adware and spyware.

I used 3dMark and got a result of 7885 and the Passmark benchmark was significantly below an Intel 6300. The graphics card checks out fine.

Anyone have any ideas what I should look for or check.

Latest graphic card drivers?

Is the card in the correct slot seeing it's a SLI board?

I have latest graphic drivers and board is in correct slot.

I think problem is with CPU/settings

if you're not happy messing with setting use click here try a quick tune first.
as it's software it wont mess with a voltages and if quite safe, it will probaly clock the card and ram up.
i would use coolbits on the card only up to max nvidia recommend, bring the ram to +10% max (sold as speed and leave the cpu.
but give ntune a try.
dont forget to make a restore point before you use it, it's safe but every system is different.

sounds obvious but is a mistake easily made ahem!
