bit of a read
with some guidance from here and places i built this pc but i am having major problems
Winxp pro sp2
Amd 64 x2 3800+
2gb corsair dual channel pc3200
Asus A8N-E nForce4 Ultra (Socket 939) PCI-Express Motherboard
XFX GeForce 7800GTX Ultra Extreme Edition 256MB GDDR3 VIVO TV-Out/Dual DVI (PCI-Express)
hiper 580w psu
200gb sata hdd
Now my problem is as follows, no matter what game i play the videos and the game itself are jumpy (badly). I have updated the nforce4 mobo drivers and graphics card drivers with the ones from nvidia,cpu driver and i have even tried the dual core xp patch floating around the web and my psu comes with a dedicated pci-e cable so i have plugged that in to the gfx card
but the strange thing is, is it doesn't matter what resolution i run it at and it doesn't matter if i turn all my settings up or down it stays just as choppy .
its more like a stutter. On far cry and nfs:mw it is kinda like the screen trys to catch up in one jump with the gun\car, also when i turn left or right on quake4\mohpa and even nfs:mw type games the screen slows down then catches up.
I have just run the demo of 3dmark05 and i got this which i reckon sux from what i have read
As for overall system performance i have nothing to compare it to so that isn't exactly helpfull. Any good programs that help?(i will look 2)
Can anyone offer me any advice please because its getting very frustrating.
I can play mohpa,nfsmw,quake4 at varying resolutions and even when they are turned all the way up they run exactly the same as in a lower res (only higher=looking a lot better) but they stutter just the same.
thanx for any advice guys i am stuck big time because i only got 1 compatible thing - a hdd so i know that it ain't that
Oh when i ran 3dmark05 at some point it showed some figures
this is from the product spec
Core clock 490MHz+
and somewhere (i'm trying to find where i saw it)3dmark05 said mine was
Core clock 8.9mhz--------This has gotta be wrong
