SOLVED: 8800GTX not running 3D correctly

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey guys I am trying to figure out why the 8800GTX in the 780i rig I just built is giving me 7FPS in 3DMark06. I've done two fresh installs of all the drivers for the board and card. Temps are good...2D looks great...but it apparently is not running right in 3D.

Any ideas? 175.19 driver.

well you could try a different driver .... my 8800 GT actually dropped a notch in performance when i installed 175.19 and there were some other issues like crashes etc..... try 175.16 or 169.25 .... both those drivers although dont have physx support are really good and i havent run into any issues with them to date. Also check your temps to see you werent very hot when you ran 3Dmark ... could just be throttling and nothing to do with the driver. Hope I helped

Sounds like a power issue. Are the 6 pin PCI-E cables connected correctly and supplying power? Might want to give them a quick check with a Digital Multimeter just to rule out any possiblity...

That's the second time I have been advised thus. I will check them right now.

I would check both PCI-E 6 pin connectors. Other than that, I can't think of anything else.

Oops someone beat me to it...

You were correct: there was one loose pin on the power connector. Fixed. Thanks so much.
