Iím having some problems with my nvidia FX 5600 as I canít run games like Oblivion and Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter.
Iím using version 56.72 forceware drivers and pretty much everything is ok (the games mentioned above wonít run though). If I update my drivers to anything newer than 56.72 I get artifacts on every 3d game (including games such as Operation Flashpoint for example which is really old).
My system specs are:
AMD Athlon XP 2000
1Gb RAM PC2700 333Mhz
MSI KT3 Ultra2 based on VIA KT333 chipset
MSI FX5600 128Mb
Soundblaster Audigy 24bit
2 Hard Disks (20mb + 80 Mb)
In addition, Iíve got WINXP SP2 and the latest 4in1 chipset drivers (5.00a).
Iíve tried many different BIOS settings, used RivaTuner to mess around with even more settings and the artifacts are still there when using any version newer than 56.72.
Do you think the card is not fully compatible with DirectX 9.0c (i.e. RUBBISH)?
Do you think there are compatibility issues between the card and the chipset?
If I need to upgrade which card you think is better: ASUS 6600 256MB or SAPPHIRE X1600 PRO 256MB? (I can get either one for around 120 euro)
