I recently got a bfg 7800 gs oc agp. I looked on some sites that reviewed the card. according to those websites my fps should be around 70 not 20. My rig is 2.8 Ghz intel p4, 1.75 Gbs of RAM and a BFG 7800 GS OC agp. I get like around 20 FPS sometimes even gos into lower. I play BF2 at 1024x768 with everything on high and 4x AA. Please help me. P.S. My processor came in a Dell Dimension 3000. Need help!!! I got a Antec Truepower 480W PSU. Duel 12+ rails with 18 amps.
I have a 7800GS and BF2 plays like butter, I got like 6,762 in 3dmark05 on the first run.
You're not the first person with a Dell ad a 7800GS to complain about low framerates, I'm pretty sure it's all the crap Dell intall's with windows, I dunno.
Re-install windows and see what happens.....and when I say windows, I mean windows, not all of the fucking bloatware fucking crap that comes with a Dell piece of shit.
but my dell HD has been completly formated...got rid of all that damn Dell stuff like the XP thats always on the HD for easy installing...i formated everything......do i still reformat? or shuld I try reinstallin bf2?
IS your P4 a socket 478/400 MHz "A" model, a 533 Mhz "B" variant Northwood, or an "800" mhz "C" NW? OR is the rig socket 775 based?
Latest chipset drivers appropriate for your mainboard installed? (available at Dell's website)
Latest Direct X 9.0c?
Latest Nvidia drivers for WInXP?
Did you say 1.75GB of RAM? how'd you get such an oddball amount?
(Does the system also have onboard video, and if so, is it disabled in the bios, with no mem left allocated to integrated video?)
Is your mem running dual channel?
And not to insult you, but.... the odd/occasional poster has installed a new AGP card, but then still run his system using the still enabled integrated video solution, and then wondered why framerates were so low! (Just making sure you were not one of them!)
It's a P4 2.8 Ghz, came with Dell's DImension 3000. Yes i have the drivers. I got Nvidia's latest. I am using a p4p 800 se Socket 478 and it has no integrated video. I don't know why the FPS is so low. My old 9600XT can perform that....should I...reinstall bf2? reformat my 80 Gb HD with windows on it?
I had a old Dell Dimension PC. THEN I took it apart....took the 256 MB of ram of it and the p4 socket 478 processor off it and bought a new case...a new mobo Asus p4p800 se and 1.5 Gb of ram...3x512mb Kingston and I also took the 80 Gb HD off the dell but i completly reformated it so nothing is on it..not even the dell XP thingy that comes on it. I am so friggin confused. WOuld it be wasier if I just bought another p4 2.8 Ghz processor? it's like 138 CDN.
