Ok probly a stupid question. I bought a Dell xps 400, got it yesterday, started it up and played with it for a minute before i reformated it (get rid of dell shit) before i did this in my system properties it said my processor speed was 3.98 I reformated, downloaded all the drivers, updated bios, and all that good stuff. Now my processor speed is shown as 2.8, now i understand that i have 2-2.8ghz processors but why whould the speed change after a format? Mostly i just want to make sure that im not getting robbed of processor speed. Every thing checks out fine it reconizes both processors and says they are both working properly. 2nd question im only running @ 24fps on CS:S i have a 1gb of ram and a nvidia 7300, on my other PC with a 6800 its running at 75fps... i have updated everything that i can think of is there somthing im missing?
