More about games lag installing graphics card
  1. Your going to have to be alot more specific then just i installed a new graphics. What graphics card is it? what sort of lag are you getting? what resolution/settings are you playing at and what games? Also whats the rest of your computers specs? Then we can help :)
  2. Yes. What's the framerate you were and now are getting? Is your PSU delivering sufficient power? Is it a generic or a branded PSU?
  3. Point 1: why did you post 2 threads 15 minutes off?
    Point 2: what is your PSU?
  4. Sorry new here, I accidentally hit the publish button when I wasn't done. MY PSU is 550 so I don't think it's the PSU
  5. 550 doesn't say the story.
    A generic power supply designed to fool unsuspecting buyers by using cheap components can deliver low enough current to lag even low-end graphics cards.
    Post more details. Open your case and take a photo of your PSU sticker if you're not sure.
  6. When did you buy your PSU? The site you posted says that the psu is end of life.
    If your PSU is getting old, it starts to lose power.
    If your PSU is old enough, consider getting a new one.
  7. Whats the video card that you bought? and whats the rest of your system specs?
  8. but my previous graphics card used to work fine with the PSU,

    GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 650 Ti
    GA-G41M-Combo motherboard

    Hello, so today I bought a new graphics card GTX 650 OC ti 2GB and it lags on some new games, I had a gts 450 before but it didn't lag!!! plz help!! what could be the problem?

    here's my specs
    windows 7 64-bit OS
    GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 650 Ti
    GA-G41M-Combo motherboard
    core 2 quad q9550 2.83GHz

    His computer specs haven't come up for me i cant see them but i just went to his link why is there two threads for this? Anyway looking at your cpu its a low clock speed and an old cpu which is bottlenecking your 650ti and would explain the lag/frame drops in any new games you play as lot of games are cpu heavy but what resolution are you playing at and what games are you playing?
  11. Not all new games lag, skyrim & call of duty black ops 2 & mafia 2 don't lag but a little bit slow, I'm playing at 1360x768 res, GTA IV & call of duty black ops lag a lot, I used to play those games smoothly with my previous graphics card gts 450 so I think my new graphics card is causing the lag

  14. Best answer
    Did you clean out your older drivers before installing your new card? that may be the conflict

    Generally people prefer to uninstall their graphics drivers, use driversweeper to clean the rest out, then install the latest driver directly from AMD/Nvidia
