why does my 9800gx2 perform poorly?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
frames are excellent but overall gameplay is very....rigid, not smooth


playing counterstrike source and currently using 174.74 drivers on vistax64 sp1

and yes i tried a buttload of drivers

help would be appreciated

thanks.


oh yeah before anyone says its my processor, its not. i had an 8800gts before and it ran flawlessly with that processor/ram/computer setup


and before anyone says why i upgraded....dont ask.

i don't think anyone would think its your processor. Perhaps, if your overclocked, its not stable.

other than that, did you reformat before you switched vga's?

Or at least uninstall driver and run driver cleaner pro at least a couple of times?

Check CPUz and go to the "Motherboard" tab. Ensure you are running at 16x on your PCI Express link.

Make sure your card is getting enough power? My old GTS used to ***** and moan when it didn't get enough power and it would throttle back.

Possibly your underpowering it?
