Thread: Really Slow Performance

    My games seem to be running real slow, ever since i got this new m/b, ram and video card.

    System Specs:

    AMD 1.2-C (266Mhz)
    Leadtek GeForce4 Ti 4200 AGP8x
    512MB DDR 333Mhz
    Creative PCI128 Sound Card
    Epox 8K9A VIA M/B

    I have the latest detonator drivers as well as the latest VIA 4in1 drivers with all options installed. I'm running my RAM at turbo which is as much as i could get it to run. If i set my D3D settings in the video setup to high performance than it runs lightning fast, but the visual quality is absolute crap.

    I'm playing vietcong for example with 16bit textures, a lot of lighting disabled, the visuals in game are nearly set to the lowest. I put the D3D peformance to blend mode, set the performance in the video setup to middle and yet i get as low at 15fps. It shouldn't be happening. I got better performance on my old Geforce 256DDR. Any help would be appreciated.

    Here is my dxdiag if it will help:

    i know this is a stupid question, but are you have 8x agp enabled right? it could be an easy thing to forget, also you have the frequencies for the new ram set right too?

    Yeah i've tweaked the ram as much as possible, also 8x agp is enabled, but it's only a very small difference with 8x as apposed to 4x. And no they weren't stupid questions, good to see people are trying to help, thanks.

    no prob dude, got another idea, does your mobo have onboard sound? cuz if it does and its enabled and u have the pci sound card in there it will do some weird things. If im not getting at the right thing here and u dont have on board, try running your games without the sound card installed. sometimes sound deviced/settings can screw around with games.

    Yeah i've definitely disabled the on-board sound. But i will try removing the pci128 sound card, i mean it is a crappy and cheap sound card :P
