Same fps in all qualities NEED HELP :( :( :(

Hi there!


I'VE GOT tHE SAME FPS IN ALL SETTINGS ON EVERY GAME ; I'VE TRIED A LOTS OF THINGS ; I HAVE THIS PROBLEM SINCE I'VE BOUGHT MY 4850. BEFORE THAT,THE 8800GS WAS WORKING OK, NOW , BOTH CARDS WORK BAD. (8800GS and 4850)

I have already tried:


CLEARING CMOS

FORMATTING


REMOVING 2gbs of my ram memory


Checked PSU Voltages

Checked GPU TEMPS

Checked CPU TEMPS


IN ALL GAMES I GET 20-30 FPS IN LOW SETTINGS (depending what game i play) and 20-35 FPS ON HIGH SETTINGS, I NEED HELP ; THIS IS VERY ANNOYING ; AND I CAN'T ENJOY MY 4850,


here are my specs:

Core 2 Duo E4600
Ati Radeon 4850 (now using 8800GS)
4gb DDR2
(one module of 2gb, (800MHZ) and two modules of 1 gb (667mhz))

Motherboard:
Gigabyte E-P45 UD3L (my old motherboard was Intel DG35EC, ive changed it because i thought it was a PCI 1.1 problem (4850 uses 2.0)

PSU:
Powercooler 520W


Sorry for my bad english, it's not my main language.

More about same qualities
  1. Your cpu is the biggest a bottleneck. Try oc to say 3ghz, i guess you will need to raise Vcole a little. I've got e4700@3.46ghz and it works quite good. I don't think that cpu will be the real reason but I have no idead what else it can be, oh almost forgot, do you have the newest drivers for that 4850? Tell us what result do you get. And btw. differences between pcie 1.1 and 2.0 are really marginal, ask first before you buy anything, ok?
  2. i have tried overclocking my E4600 to 2.9Ghz , and it is the same :(


    ye i had the lastest drivers for 4850


    Thanks for the answer ^^
  3. I do not want to hijack this thread but instead provide another data point of reference for the same problem.

    I too am getting low fps in games no matter what the quality or resolution I set it as.

    My Specs:
    OS: Windows 7 64-bit Professional (happened in Win XP 32-bit as well)
    Memory: 4GB DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) - 4 x 1GB
    CPU: AMD Athlon 64 X2 4800+ (Overclocked to 2.889GHz from 2.5GHz)
    GPU: NVIDIA XFX Geforce 7950GT 256MB (Overclocked to Core/Memory of 670MHz/800MHz from 570MHz/730MHz)
    HDD: Seagate 250GB HDD @ 7200RPMs
    Monitor: LG 22" Widescreen running at 1600x1050

    My 3dMark06 Scores:
    Score: 5867
    SM 2.0: 2470
    SM 3.0: 2418
    CPU: 1914

    The games this occurs in are: Team Fortress 2, Borderlands, and Left 4 Dead.

    I am starting to think it's a bottleneck with my CPU but not sure. These games (except for Borderlands which I didn't own back then) used to run fine with all settings maxed out.
  4. Install CPU-Z and look at the graphics tab. Maybe it will show something.

    Are you certain you're using the video cards and not the integrated video?
  5. my processor got an score of 19k in 3dmark vantage, so i think its not the cpu, is it the psu then?
