Im sooo lost

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

Well I have the 8800 GTS, its just im getting crappy frame rates in all of my games.

In NWN2 im getting a framerate of around 20 fps, and in call of duty 2 I get about 30-35 fps

Im tried everything i can think of. While the games are playable (Kinda). My card should be kicking some major butt.

Ive tried the latest drivers from nvidia, those didnt work, so i tried drivers from MSI (the cards man) they were a slightly older version, and I figured it was worth a try thou. I got the same results. Ive updated my MB drivers.

Is this the fault of my slow as hell proc, or am I missing somthing here.. pls forgive me i am a newb

Thank in advance
Ken

Did you use Driver Cleaner pro?

You need to make sure you erased all your previous drivers so they don't interfere with your new ones.

You got it all wrong. You probably have drivers installed from your old video card. I'll give you a link to something that will start you off fresh.

Ha! If that's a new hard drive, then I don't know what's wrong. I'd wait it out a bit to see what other people have to say.
