GTX 260 poor performance?

I apologize if this is the wrong place to post this.

The other day I tried playing Metro 2033, it was unplayable until I changed the resolution from 1440x900 to 800x600. Not even switching to the lowest settings made it playable when I was using 1440x900. My average FPS was 15-20 on 1440x900, 30-35 on 800x600.

Now, I know that I shouldn't be able to max it out, but I should at least be able to play on medium or high settings at my native resolution. I should also add that I've been generally getting poor performance in most modern games, it's not exlusive to Metro 2033, it's just the most recent. I've been reading about people running it on medium to high with an 8800, surely my GTX 260 would be able to run it at higher or at the very least, the same settings.

According to Game-o-Meter, I am over the recommended requirements. I also used it with other games I had trouble running too, and it said I was over the recommended requirements for most of those games. Of course, I'm not sure how accurate this is.

Either something is seriously screwed up, or my computer isn't capable of handling these games as well as I thought it would.

In case this is needed, my PSU is 650W. It's a Corsair.

Quote:
you should be able to play 1440x900 high settings or so yeah thats right.. Hmmm what about your temps??? Card running at unstable clocks? Maybe its full of dust? If it is clean it. And reinstall your drivers.

The temp never goes above 70. I've never overclocked it, if that's what you mean by unstable clocks. As for dust, I'll have to check. Also, I just recently reinstalled the drivers.

Is your SS# in all that by any chance?

Might want to give CPUz and GPUz a look over as well. Perhaps you've got some weird bus settings or the PCIe slot is in 1x mode, etc.

hello, i know what hte problem is, its your graphics card, this happened to me, as you can see in gpu-z, altho your clocks are 575 etc, its only going at 300mhz, restart your computer or something, it should be fine.

mine goes down to 300mhz when my drivers crash, due to overclocking, ten i restart, its all good again.

Those are probably the 2D clocks. They should increase once you load a game.

I always install my drivers like that. But I did reinstall them anyway after I cleaned out the dust like another poster said. Sorry for not meantioning that in my previous post.

When you play Metro or other games, does your GPU-Z show the core/memory clocks reaching full speed?

Nvm, I was reading this forum topic:
http://forums.pureoverclock.com/showthread.php?threadid...

Even a 5970 couldn't play it very well with max settings. (And a 5970 is equal to two underclocked GTX295s in QuadSli, or roughly 4 GTX260s)

Apparently Metro 2033 is a poorly coded piece game (probably worse coding than GTA4) that has problems in all DX versions, and fps takes an even larger hit when tessellation is turned on.

It looks way worse than Crysis yet is even more hardware intensive than Crysis...long story short = bad coding, horrible optimization

I just wanted to check your 12v rail. Just fine at 52a.


+1 to BSOD I know quite a few people that have problems running this game.

You might net a few frames by oc'ing but I would not expect too much. Just a poorly designed game.

This was the problem, they weren't going their normal speed. It was caused by me underclocking, the reason I did this was it seemed to stop the nvlddmkm errors. However, I'm worried the errors will start again. Since I'm sure the errors aren't caused by anything else, I'll be getting the card replaced if the errors start happening again.

I only underclocked by about 3 MHz, I don't fully understand why that would cause this problem.

Thanks for the help.

The GTX 260 has a power saver mode, that down clocks it when it isn't needed. I have read in a few forums that some games don't stress (or it could be some sort of flaw in the power saver program) the GPU enough to make it clock back up.
