I was recently "gifted" a PC from work which had become surplus since their recent upgrades, essentially the specs with a few additional parts I was able to secure is as follows...
MSI K9AGM4 (bios ver 1.3)
Athlon x 2 5000+
2 x 1 Gb Geil ddr2-800
nVidia 6600Gt 256Mb PCI-e
You would be forgiven thinking it looks sufficient to run Star Craft 2 (looking at Blizzards online specification guide) but here's the kicker it's not, it's as laggy as hell
The 6600gt ran the game beautifully on a e6400 system I slapped together with similar specs, bios is configured to make the most of the ram timings and the system is otherwise stable, I figured it should have been better as my old 3700+ 939/Radeon 9600xt ran the game to a playable level.
The only stumbling block I can see might be the small on die cache, any thoughts?
