post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
hi, i just got the evga 8800 gts and when i am trying to play microsoft flight simulator x i am not able to see my airplane and other parts are missing and lagging. the same is with halo where i am either not able to see my character or the whole screen. i was wondering why i am not able to play these games? since i spent so much $$ on this card.
thank you

Most likely driver issues. Do you have the newest drivers installed?

Either a driver issue or maybe your card is defective. Do you have enough power to run the card. Whats your psu?

Im not sure, whats the amps on the 12v rail? If its modular i would suggest getting a new one. PSU's can be the route of all evil. And can cause alsorts of problems. Flight Sim will be the only game that really challenges the GPU IMO so im guessing it may be the psu. Not sure though, see what other people think first.

i just built this rig 10 days ago and every once in a when i would restart my computer or every 3 or 4 boots it would just blue screen or just stay on the windows loading screen. then it would say that something was wrong and i could either enter windows in safe mode, use previous working settings or just start windows normally. if i would pick any of the options it would repeat the above process. and after about 3 or 4 times restarting my computer it would finally boot into windows. could these errors also have been generated by my weak power supply?

My GTX works fine in all my games, including FSX.
450w should be OK for that build, but Iced is right, amperage matters much more.
