7800GS + BF2 = Unhappy Shawn.

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
Okay, For some reason this card will NOT run BF2 properly.

I'm running 83.40 FORCEWARE's right now and they do the same as the last ones I had on here (Don't know which ones). BF2 running at the same settings I use to be able to run with a 3.4Ghz prescott and a 6800LE.

Temperatures on card and CPU are fine, I tried overclocking the card to 518/1470 (coolbits auto-detect) and running it, same thing, Then once more at 500/1400... You guess the outcome.

Anyone have any ideas towards this? What I'm doing wrong? Any drivers that have proven themselves with the 7800GS or any console commands to fix this?

Just more info:

I installed BF2, SF, Then patched to 1.2, CPU is at 3.6Ghz, GFX temp reading 37*C.

Dumb question, but have you tried stock?

Are you having bad frame rates?

What are your visual settings at?

If you have everything on high and only 1GB of RAM that is your issue. Turn down the settings and it should play just fine for you.

Maybe ge the ones from Nvidia. 81.98 I think and see what happens. 83.40 are modded drivers right? Maybe they conflict with the 7800GS in some way. Best to use the ones from the company its self. Worth a try at least.

81.89's don't support 7800GS, 83.40's are ForceWare. The ones that came on the disk with the card are what started this.

800x600 with EVERYTHING on low, Dynamic Lighting/Shadow's OFF, AA off, View distance: 50%

= 16.000FPS SOLID!

I play everything maxed with no issues. Yes, even textures.

I apologize for going OT.

It isn't choppy at all? My rig would have issues, especially while loading maps. It would have to load data to the PF and it would cause choppy frames every now and then.
