You're computer will be able to handle the 6800gt no problem, (why not get a 6800gs, save some more cash for same performance). A little light overclock will eliminate any bottlenecking at medium/high resolutions.


One thing concerns me is the temp reading of the onboard video, 73-75 at idle??? Thats way too high.


The fact that clock gen works would suggest to me that the motherboard is not locked. Are there any settings in the BIOS that would suggest you can change the frequencies there?

Yeah, some boards will just have the OC options removed by the OEM that built the machine, basically to stop people OCing and potentially doing damage to their PCs, you happen to be lucky to have a board that can still be OC'd, meaning the clock crystal on the board isnt locked, and can indeed be overclocked.


Unfortunately, the only way you can OC will be by increasing the FSB speed, so lowering the CPU multi may be out of the question too.


Try downloading a64 tweaker, you may be able to adjust ram timings and dividers from it.
