Hello, i have a radeon 3850 AGP, and an amd athlon 64 3400... the problem is i can't really do any more upgrading without getting a whole new computer. i do know that my CPU is a serious bottleneck, and i was wondering if there was any way i could take load off my Processor and put more on to my Graphics Card? and what settings in games are more Graphics heavy than processor? Thank you!

Just edited, i got it backwards. i wanted to put more load on the Graphics card, originally i said processor! Whoops.
Thanks for the reply though.
So now that i have the question right.. any ideas? i need to put more load into graphics card then processor, and i was wondering what kind of game settings affect graphics card more.

Depends on the game, but anything that increases view distance, quantity of AI required will hit your processor hard. Also try reducing audio settings as complex 3d audio can hit the CPU a bit. But for sure play at lower resolutions, and reduce quality settings, do as reg said for AA etc. and don't go above 1280*xxxx, preferably 1024*xxx.

Lowering the burden on your graphics card will actually give your processor more time to get on with the rest. So you shouldn't be looking to increase the burden on your GFX.

Try to check what is running in background when you are playing games. Know alot of guys are complaining about ''low'' fps on theirs games when this can be resolved by puting off the crap outside the os.

An good eg can be when malicious software goes on your computer just because you go too much on p0rn websites . hehehehehe
