See if you can try a friends Nvidia card in there for only a day we dont wanna see if it will fry or else you just owed him a 7800GS. If you cant do that go to the PC shop you have just bought a **** load of stuff from and try the 7800GS there on a similar system if you can and see how it goes. I suggest taking the drivers you want with you on a junk drive or a SD card or whatever. If the cards still perform the exact same then I say its the card if the 7800GS beats the crap outta the x1300 as it should then I would say its the mobo not liking Nvidia.
Once again slow down on all this stuff.
I returned everything I didnt need.
The things Ive bought are:
mother board p4s800d-x 75$
Case for the motherboard 100$
Cpu fan 50$
The 7800gs, Im returning to the store by replacing it with the fried one.
I returned the psu and x1300xt pro.
I also bought a second cpu fan which I didnt use as well as arctic silver which i didnt use, Im returning both of those as well.
I guess Ill go and try getting a new mobo and seeing if it makes a difference.
Im not gonna keep things I dont need, and it doesnt seem like the store minds or even notices what im doing.
Everything Ive bought and kept is what I needed, I have no motherboard that can support the cpu I own, no case that could fit the mobo I bought. Without a fan the cpu would fry.
