ATI drivers

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I have an X1950XT and the only game I really play much of is counterstrike source. I was wondering if there is a better driver than the ATI 7.5 with CCC? My fps seems to be limited to 75 even tho it used to average 120? Anyone know why? My gut feeling is that its something to do with the refresh rate which is 75Hz on my 19inch widescreen..

Have a look at the forums @ AMD/ATI

**EDIT** Just thought, I haven't updated my driver since building this PC last week

You only need 30fps to run smoothly anyway. So that is fine. if you are using a 19" wide make sure the resolution is @ 1440x900 in the options

No, it won't make a difference at all. Just install the driver only, then use ati tray tools to adjust AA and AF.

Do you have vsync. on? As others said, you can can simply install the driver and use ATITool or ATI Tray Tools to control other options.

Vsync will limit your fps to the max refresh rate of your monitor:

My LCD is 60hz (60 cycles every 1 second) = 60 fps maximum output. The gphx card may do more, but what's the point if any frames over the 60 mark aren't going to be displayed anyway?

Take Vsync off, and your fps in game may go up, but still limited to your monitor's refresh rate, ie yours has a max of 75fps displayed

75 or 120 = no difference at all to what your eye sees
