I just upgraded a PC w/ a A-XP 3000+, 1GB RAM, and 9600 Pro 128MB to a 6800XT to play BF2:SF, AoEIII, and a few others at higher frames/settings. The only problem is there seems to be no or little performance increase. I uninstalled all of the Ogemga ATI drivers and tools before installing the 6800XT and installed the 81.98 NVIDIA drivers and Coolbits. I ran 3DMark05 and got 852. I should be getting ~3300. I am running at the stock clocks and 8x mode is enabled in the bios. Detecting optimal frequencies for the video card clocks and running 3DMark05 adds about about 50 points. Something is wrong here and I can't figure out what.
