MSI NVIDIA nForce Standard Chipset Based - K8N Neo04-F Motherboard
e-GeForce 7600 GS by EVGA Video Card
Up to 1G ram
Kept old CPU: AMD Athlon 64 3200+ 2.01GHz
NOW, the problem I'm having is I havn't been able to run any games. New, old, any games. They run
so jerky and just.... well terrible!
This video card boasts "Designed for EXTREME HD GAMING", like woah. And I've found no complaints about it
anywhere. It seems to be working perfectly for everybody. *shrug*
So I thought "maybe my power supply is too low", but I read that the 7600 is supposed to need little power.
I have a 350 W power supply.
I installed everything on a clean, formatted hard drive. My windows XP is updated to service pack 4. I have all necessary video card and motherboard drivers.
I've tried the following games:
The Broken Sword: Angel of Death
Neverwinter Nights 2
Heroes of might and magic V
They all run so choppy they are unplayable.
Most of these games auto detect my system capabilities and put it on high graphics. But I find even when I turn the screen resolution down to 800 X 600 and the graphics to low, it STILL runs just as choppy, and with the graphics that low it looks TERRIBLE anyways.
The first person shooters like Doom3 and Oblivion move all slow motion like and jittery when I look around. It's so bad it hurts my eyes to look around the room. It clips about every 1 sec when I walk forward as well.
Games like Prey even support my vid card on their site.
Games like Neverwinter Nights 2 have so little graphic demand, or at least stuff going on, compared to doom 3. Or even Broken Sword, it has fricken cartoon graphics! But the mouse drags across the screen as if my computer can barely run the game.
W T F?
I'm all out of ideas here guys.
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.
