When i turned the system on for the first time, it showed an error message which was something like the power to the graphic card is not sufficient, so it might not work properly.I ignored that message.
Now the device manager and the system properties say that the graphic card is working fine.The thing is that the windows and direct x are detecting the card as 9800GT with 1GB memory but it is only the games that are not working properly. Even the display i am running is 1680x1050 pixel and it is crystal clear.
when i try to play a few games like far cry 2 and test Drive unlimited the graphics are not what i expected them to be.I used to have the 512mb 7300GT from Nvidia with Core2duo. Its graphics were much better than this system. For information i have directx 10 and the nvidia drivers date is November 11, 2008. I am really frustrated now. can anyone suggest what might be the problem? As for me it was my dream computer and now its becoming nightmare.
P.S.Another thing is that the motherboard software which is called "Asus Six Engine" says, no VGA Detected please install supported VGA (VGA QVL)"
I have seen asus website and 9800GT is specifically a QVL supported card.
I am very sad now
