Do you have a large enough power supply in the machine to handle the card?

Well if the system is generic your 350W is more like 180W.

Use driver cleaner get rid of the old drivers and reinstall the latest ones.

Try the hyperion drivers. Your chipset will like them, and they've been updated, which sure cure that problem, whereas the latest 4 in 1s are 5 years old.

ok an update to my first question..

i bought a 500 watt psu and im still getting bad fps.. do you think its the cpu. some one told me that it might not be ok for the card.. its a 1.8ghz celeron tho on the graphics card box it says it only needs 600mhz.. tho im getting a 2.6ghz p4 this week hopefully that will help.. any one got any thoughts on this..

tho i have one thing to say..

awhile back i installed a stupid windows xp vista transformation pack.... BIG MISTAKE. anyway after i installed that my fps went down. i uninstaller it and thought things would be ok... i also reinstalled windows.. do you think thats still effecting it?

many thanks for your replies
