7800GT Problem

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I've got an MSI 7800GT running @ stock speeds, havent oc'd it yet. my cpu is also @ it's stock speed of 2.22 ghz. My 19" lcd is running @ 75mhz refresh rate. Anyways, the problem is as follows. I play source on this rig and it should run source on high settings on high resolutions but it does NOT. I play on 1024 x 768 with aa and af both on 2x with the card's image settings on high performance. Now, when i play on rather small 20 man servers i get horrible fps loss upon entering rather small gun battles (the ingame settings are mostly on low and medium, aa and af ingame are also at about 2x) I am using the forceware 81.98 drivers and have directx 9.0b installed. what could the problem be? thanks in advance

First of all, don't go bashing members indirectly for not responding within the 45mins you gave them. It's late at night and most of the members here have jobs.

To try and answer your question, try dropping your refresh rate down to 60hz from 75. One of my video problems was that right there.
