Just got the game. I have overclocked my card using power strip; it has always allowed better game play on other games, eg. Unreal, etc. When I set the settings for splinter cell to high and very high, it won't load and freezes. I have to play the game at the lower settings, which sucks. Is there a patch to correct this problem.

my specs:

Intel 4 3.2 800 FSP
1 GB Kingsington Hyper Channel
ATI Radeon 9700 Pro
Maxtor 200 GB 10000 RPM SATA Hardrive
42 inch Plasma Monitor
Water Cooled System

Try underclocking your card. Wow, aside from me you're one of the only other people here with an awesome PC.

You should upgrade to the 3.2 P4 and get a 42 inch plasma to play the games.

I also have the ASUS P4C800 mother board (simply the best), the sound blaster audiology platinum 2 card, and a bose home theater system I bought for the computer. The computer beats all benchmarks when overclocked.

Why would I want to upgrade to a 3.2GHz if I have mine overclocked at 3.5GHz? And the MSI 875P NEO series has gotten better reviews than the ASUS P4C800. The chipset's heatsink on your motherboard also interfers with some video card heatsinks.

And your hard drive can't be 10,000RPMs. The only 10,000RPM SATA hard drives are the Western Digital Rapter Enterprise series. They are only 36.7GBs each. You can't have a 200GB 10,000RPM SATA drive. Especially by Maxtor.

Did you fix your problem with the 9700-and if you are both golden you should have 9800PRO 256mb cards with freon cooling (water is for kids).

Yup, you were kidding. Well, I just spent well over $300 on mine. I got that new motherboard which was $91. Then I bought the XP 3000+ (it was OEM, better price) for $245. Then I put the TT liquid system in for $100. Ok, I take that back, I spent well over $400....Oh well, I love my computer, what can I say?
