I just tried out the X1950 PRO on Unreal Tournament 2004 and the video is jerky. The n6600 seemed to run game play video much more smoothly. I don't understand why that would be as the X1950 PRO is a much better video card than the n6600. In fact it's 7 steps up on the following link:
and ranked 39th vs. 106th for the n6600 on this link:
There was no installation CD for the X1950 PRO, so I d/l the drivers from here:
From that link I d/l and installed Full Driver 41.2MB and Dot Net Framework 23.1MB. I installed the Dot Net Framework first, then the Full Driver.
So, I'm wondering if it could be one of a few different things.
First, was the Dot Net Framework a necessary d/l and install? The VisionTek website indicated "Required component for Full Driver Package " for the Dot Net Framework. I'm just not sure if that's genuine or not.
Second, when exploring the VisionTek website for the correct drivers, there are actually two options I could have possibly selected. The first one was "X1950 PRO AGP", the second choice was "Radeon X1900 Series". Since my computer only has an AGP slot and no PCI-E, I selected "X1950 PRO AGP". I'm wondering if I should have selected "Radeon X1900 Series". In fact, I'm wondering if both selections would have been appropriate?
Third, there is a control panel for the video card and I'm wondering if there are specific settings I need to tweak in order for it to look like it should.
Lastly, my AGP slot is 4X and version 2.0. I know the X1950 PRO is a 8X version 3.0 I believe, but was also under the impressions that this video card would work fine for me except that it would work at AGP 4X rather than AGP 8X.
Any thoughts, help, recommendations, are greatly appreciated.
