Hi there everyone ;

I have a problem with my graphic card but its a software problem i think. I tested it in several games and i have a problem and i'm not happy with it.

I tested it in ;

Team Fortess 2
Left 4 Dead
Half-Life 2
Crysis Warhead
Need For Speed Undercover

I know first 3 are steam powered games. I got 40-60 fps in these games and its hard to play in that games with that frames and in last 2 games i got low fps again but bad shadow quality too.

What should i do ?

My system :

Asus Rampage Formula Motherboard
Intel q9300 Quadcore with Thermaltake Cooler
4x1gb 1033mhz OCZ Ram
2x500gb Samsung HDD
ZOTAC Geforce 280 GTX
LCPOWER 1000watt Power Supply

And i use Windows XP 64-bit and latest driver of Nvidia 200 series.

ugh... what resolution are u playing at? im not sure why you are getting 40-60 fps... i play the same games and i have an E8500 and a 4850 im getting 200+ FPS in steam games, 40+ fps in warhead with high details no aa, and 100 fps in need for speed. to be honest im not sure wtf is wrong with your setup... but if i had to guess it would be ur 64 bit OS.

1680x1050 resolution , not full details in that games. I tried it in Vista 64-bit and it's same. I think you are right about my OS. I'll try it 1-2 days later after another solutions. (:

Yes, sounds software related so first...
Uninstall your current graphics drivers, AND USE DRIVERSWEEPER in Windows Safe Mode to clear out the remaining crud and install the latest WHQL certified drivers from the Nvidia site. The Driversweeper bit is importaint as both green and red teams are fond of leaving behind crud after a driver uninstall!

Thanks both coozie7 and werxen. I'll try driversweeper and then check the hardware and psu cables. If it's not work i'll format and install 32-bit.
