ok so u normally run it maxed out on the same map u played and everything worked fine before and all of a sudden ur frames dropped but u dont know 4 sure because u didnt have fraps running. does that sound right? have u tried another game?

well i ran fraps afterwards to c what kind of fps i was looking at and normaly its around 30, but it droped down to no higher then 15, and it was same map and server, as for differnt games i have tried them but i dont have a game that push my gpu like bf2 does

hmm i had a friend who had the exact same problem as you did. he ended up just getting a new gpu, so we didnt have time to inestigate it. bf2 is a very strage game when it comes 2 frames. i hear this problem all the time but dont know how to fix it. i would do what you r doin and just reinstall. i would also patch bf2 and update my drivers. let me no how it goes

k while we have been posting i have been reinstalling bf2, it is done and am patching it and will go look for new drivers for my gpu but if it is busted then hello 7950 x2 i hope, and thank you for ur help

i doubt its busted. but u should download a trial for a newer game with lots of eyecandy. like age of empires 3 or fear r sumtin like that. see how it runs. if it runs disgustingly bad then get that gx2 cuz a gtx should get ok frames in those games. pluse upgradin 2 a gxt will make u MUCH happier. and this is comin from an ati guy with a x1900.

im not one sided, i had a ati 7000 until last christmas, and put a ati x1900 XTX in a friends system, so im no fan boy, but nvidia has a better card out, well at least its more powerful at the moment

running doom 3 compleatly maxed out, AA X4 1248*1024 and everything on high, max fps is around 50, avarge from what i can tell is somewhere near 20fps

well that should b normal at a stock speed gtx. so its not ur gpu.

have u tried runing bf2 again after reinstalling the game and updating n patching?
July 22, 2006 2:02:12 AM

i reinstalled the game and patched it and nothing, then reinstalled drivers and nothing, ran prime95 for about 8 hours so its not my system any thoughts?

very strange. the only way 2 no 4 sure is if you have an extra hard drive, reformat it, install windows and all your driver needs. then try running bf2 and c if runs like it should. but thatl be a pain in the ass. if it runs like it used 2 then you will no that it must have been something you recently did on ur other windows install.

i dunno it started working again, my comp takes a couple hours to warm up even after a restart, but now its working fine, but do u have any idea why it takes so long?
July 23, 2006 3:48:30 AM

wut??? warm up so it doesnt work well unless u warm it up 4 a couple hours?
July 23, 2006 9:24:43 PM

well in order for my graphics card to work to its full potential my comp has to be on for a couple of hours, and i had just restarted my comp which explains why it was so glitchy i think
July 23, 2006 10:53:35 PM

well i guess but once u play for about five min, everything should b working and warmed up. well im glad u figured it out
