6800GT running at AGP x4??

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I was looking through the functions within NVtune last night and under the troubleshooting bit it seemed to be saying that my card is running at AGP x4 and I should change it to AGP x8.
Well there is no option in the BIOS to run at x8 anywhere, I look at the advanced properties under the display settings menu and it tells me that the bus is pci?
I am sure that i used to be able to see AGP 3.0 in there, I can find no reference to anything AGP x4, x8, or 3.0.
As I understand it AGPx8 runs at 0.8v but the only settings I have in the Bios are for 1.5v, 1.6v and 1.7v.
This is bugging the hell out of me as I used to run bf2 smooth as silk but now after about 20 seconds my frame rate drops to 15 and stays there (even at 800x600 resolution).
Any help much appreciated.
I have tried the nvidia drivers 77.77 and am currently at 81.98.

I think your graphics card is slowly dying on you, those X-Connect power supplys arent the best. I mean even if you were running it at 4x and thats all that was wrong then you would only notice like a 4-6 fps drop, because there really isnt much difference from 4x-8x. Id check to make sure its not your vid card because i think she's dying on you.
