I had been using a 128MB NVIDIA GeForce FX 5700 Ultra graphics card for about two years & finally I decided to upgrade but kinda was a lil tight in the budget so I bought a graphics card that looked, well, to be honest it looked rather good to me, I bought a 256MB ATI Radeon X800XL. My previous NVIDIA had only 4 pixel pipelines & was 128-bit, the ATI has 16 & is 256-bit. BUT to be honest I haven't seen that much of an improvement in the graphics or the gameplay. My games still do not work perfectly smooth or have much nicer graphics. What games ? Battlefield 2, F.E.A.R., Swat 4, Half-Life 2, NFS Most Wanted etc.
My comp specs are,
Pentium 4 3.00GHz with HT
80GB 7200rpm Sata HDD
Dvd-rom, Cd-writer, Dvd-writer
Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 2
I updated to the latest drivers from the ATI website, I do not want/need Omega drivers ! Is there any software maybe that could tell me for each game what the detail settings should be set to, to get about 60FPS, over 50 at least. I do not have the patience to check the settings for each game. Or is it not possible with my computer specs to run games at a good frame rate with quality graphics ? Please, help is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
