I'm actually a little frustrated with my performance in EVE, because I assumed it should be much higher than it is. After seeing my sister's fiance's PC run it, I know for sure it should run better.

My PC:
AMD Athlon64 3200+ Venice 2000mhz 90nm
2GB DDR400 Kingston
eVGA 7800GT 256
SB Audigy 2

His PC:
ASUS A7N8X-E Deluxe
AMD AthlonXP 3000+
1GB DDR400 Kingston
ATI Radeon 9800 PRO 128

Our FPS are literally the same at 1280x1024 with 24bit/8bit stencil, interval immediate, 32bit / 8bit stencil Z-buffer, no multisampling. I only beat him when going into warp and opening the star map-- his lags slightly, mine doesn't.

What am I doin' wrong? I don't have any OC'ing going on, PC parts are all new. Only thing I can think of is that EVE and the Page File are running off the same HD.

thatís the odd thing, i run eve on 3 computers and one that is 10x worse then the other plays eve 10 frames faster!
I did see that your PC has a SB Audigy 2, please check to see if you have the drivers from the CD or the new ones from the web site. I know its the old "Update driver" rubbish that we all do, but that seems to be the only thing i can see that 'could' be it.

I know what you mean, but I am religious about updating my drivers, so that can't be it. My guess is that the card itself is faulty... and that I should get it replaced with another one, or a better one.

You're not doing anything wrong, its just because the processors are quite similar in speed. Eve relies heavily on the cpu and very little on the graphics card so even though the 7800 is by far the better card it'll make almost no difference.
