New member incoming!
I was hoping some of you could help me with a problem I got.
A couple of days ago I upgraded my Graphic card and my CPU, went up from a intel core duo2, 2.66ghz, e6750 to an intel core duo2 3ghz, e7400.
At first I had this nice problem where my BIOS was saying I had my CPU running at 98*C, which I knew was wrong. After a bit googling I found a Beta version update for my Abit ip35-e socked 775 motherboard that a lot of people said fixed the problem, And it did!
So, everything was running nice and smooth and I was happy!
But, of course, There had to be another problem.
My New CPU, which supposedly is better, is running slower then my old one. Not when comparing the GHz , but simply when I'm playing a game.
I get lag and even msn messenger is lagging a bit.
Note, I have only tried 1 game , All points bulletin, and browsing \ chatting at the same time, this is when the lag occurs.
There has been no change whatsoever to the system itself, beside the CPU change.
So my little brain tells me that there most be something wrong with the CPU, the settings or something..
(Note, the GPU was changed a couple of days earlier, with no problems during my old CPU)
Since I don't have much knowledge in this area, I kneel down in the dust, begging for help! =D
Thanks for all replies!
