Supposedly it runs at medium settings on the 6400, i have yet to try it out. Maybe would get a little improvement by overclocking it.

|bf2 is a bit more cpu dependant than gpu dependant in your case I think. your ram isn't limiting at all. I've OC'd my pm 715 to 2ghz, and the x300 128mb to 418/560. get 40-60 fps at med-low settings at 800x600. Though having a great vid card wouldn't hurt :P|

Isn't that sufficient for most games? I'm pretty sure its the GPU since x300s are pretty lowend. The thing is, when I start to game on CSS, I get around 40fps which is very playable at 800x600 with most settings on high. But a couple minutes into it and the frames drop to the teens. this drop happens everytime even when i set everything to low. its definitely not my conn since i get pings at around the 50's.. any suggestions?
|I have the same CPU/GPU combinaison and I can run CSS at 1024x768 with everything to medium and world details to high at an average of 100fps except in Office and Dust2 where I hit 70fps max. Howerver, I have 1gb of RAM. If you have less than 1gb, the quantity of RAM you have may be the bottleneck. Also, do you have 1 stick or 2? Two is better because they will run in Dual Channel mode.
You may also look for the ATI Omega Drivers which provide a small boost in graphic performances and if you are cowboy enough, you may overclock your X300 as it is an excellent overclocker!
Back to the topic now... How goes the BIOS modification so far? Wouldn't it be better if someone posted the BIOS image of a HyperMemory enabled X300?
