9800GX2 is acting up?? - Page 2

post #11 of 14
Haha, you got the addiction to awesome computer hardware, I say save the money. The 9800Gx2 has horrible scaling in Quad SLi, If you got a connection then get yourself a 280Sli or Triple Sli. The Maxishine video impressed me. 1920x1200 with 8x AA on Crysis with 50FPS is just sick.
Then agian like you and I we both have 1680x1050 resolution monitors and with that we can run any game maxxxed out! Really the only problem is games to play with these video cards. We need FarCry2 and Fallout2 NOW!

Hey guys!!!

Some may know, But i'm a happy customer with my 9800GX2 SSC from EVGA.. Bought it June 19th, got it.. 2 days later.. June 21st I guess..

It was fine, running nice. But i bought the card going from a 8800GTX to 9800GX2. With my reading, and learning... I saw i can reach around 30FPS+ in Crysis. With a 1280x1024 no AA on.. I have yet to reach that..

Current drivers 175.16 <-- Driver issue maybe? Suggest me new ones...?

So, I overclocked it, from 675 Core, to 725 Core/1073 Memory

I went from a crappy 16, 324 area, to 16, 636 in 3dMark06. <-- Something not right?

Shouldn't this card be putting out more FPS than it should be?? Something seems wrong to me.

Should I try overclocking it more?? (if so, please give me a range of #'s)

I'm starting to second guess my purchase on this card, and go to a GTX 280, for only $107.36 with EVGA step-up.. *75 days left*

Thanks, KB3
Yes, its your drivers. You want to update to either 177.39 or 177.41 but you will need a modded inf. file as these updates are only for the newest cards. I noticed a MAJOR difference in the performance of crysis and Im usually averaging about 30fps with the occasional dip under 20 due to the 512MB on both cards. You dont need to overclock it anymore.

Edit: Also, may I ask what resolution you game on? and what you have your q6600 clocked to as well?....These will also be a determining factor in the overall FPS you get in crysis.
