I received my i9300 (with nVidia 6800 GPU) Friday and I fired it up and put Call of Duty on. I noticed when I was in a multiplayer game, my system lagged when I had the graphics set as high as they would go. I asked on the server if anyone else was having issues with lag and the answer was no. I backed up the system to another computer and then I reloaded (XP Pro) from scratch. I never ran any benchmarks, but the feel of the machine was much faster and more smooth. The same server and map can now be played at the highest settings for video with no lag. Dell puts so much crap on their machines that it really does make a difference to reload the system!
