Can someone review my BIOS specs ?

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone.


Recently I have purchased and assembled my new gaming rig. I’m having some performance problems when playing video games. For instance in BattleField2 I get kicked out of the servers sometimes, and I’m 90% sure that the problem is with my new HW, and not with my network connection or router.


This is what I have as HW








OCZ EL Platinum PC3200 2GB 2X1GB DDR400 CL2-3-2-5 184PIN Pin Dual Channel Memory Kit /W Ramsink




AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ Dual Core Processor S939 Manchester 2Ghz 512KBX2 90NM Retail Box


Video card:


EVGA E-GEFORCE 7800GT CO PCI-E 256MB 256BIT GDDR3 Dual DVI-I HDTV VIVO SLI Ready Video Card Retail



Here are my BIOS settings.


I took the defaults, and edited just a few of the selections such as the SATA RAID settings and PCIEx (video section)


Can anyone check my BIOS settings (video and Genie BIOS section) and let me know if I have any kind of problems or conflicts. Also, if there’s any kind of optimal memory settings, I would appreciate


Thanks so much in advance.

I'm going to try these settings given by Durhamskin in a previous post, see if it makes any difference... buy someone PLEASE take a look at my other settings, especially the video section.
