i just purchased a 8600gts for my gateway, and i also did a fresh install of windows vista x64 and the card is successfully installed but when i go in game i get the same fps as i did with intergrated, and on canyourunit.com any game i check it says
Video RAM: Required - X MB , You have - 2.0 GB
the 2GB is dedicated video memory , how can i set my video card as primary, i already checked around bios and cannot find anything
Weeeeeeeeellllllllllllllllllll, did you hook your monitor up to your new video card or to your onboard video? Your monitor should be hooked up to your 8600GTS. If you don't have an option to disable the onboard video in the BIOS then your motherboard should dissable it if it detects that you have a card in the PCI-E slot and that the monitor is hooked up to that card. What motherboard chipset do you have anyway?
