I am upgrading my computer and slowly getting in the parts one piece at a time. So I got one of my Gigabyte 460 GTX 1GB in and decided to pop it in...and...WHAT? No improvement.
Currently i am running Q6600 @ 2.4ghz with the ECS671T-M mobo, yeah its a blackfriday deal and i have 4gb of ram, but only 3gb is recognizable cause of the mobo, and the 8800GT. I play Battlefield 2 and stuff and get around 20 FPS on the 1680 setting. NOW once i plugged in my GTX 460 i was expecting overkill on the FPS and i would have to go to a higher resolution at least. But low and behold its still right around 20FPS. But then the thing is everything i change it to, just hangs around 20 FPS, is this because of my other components?
I did not removed them before i installed the new ones. Generally when i get a new video i never have to uninstall the old drivers, if i wanted to how do i do it cause it says i have the new drivers now?
I have the same exact issue im fighting. I had a 1gig 8800gt and i upgraded to a gigabyte gtx 460 and have almost no improvement also.
I am also running a crappy OEM mobo and a SLACR G0 Q6600, but only at 2.4ghz
Ill try mine tonight and disable AA and see if i get an improvment.
I checked out tigerdirect and you can get a P5N-D mobo, case and powersupply, windows 7, along with corsairs liquid cooler H50 for 380 bucks shiped and that would allow overclocking q6600 up to like 3.6ghz stable, and allow future SLI for the GTX 460.
What do you guys think would that get any bang out of our setup.
Kinda wierd im having the same problem with the same Hardware jackdaniels is. kinda rules out a bad card, and leans me more twards bottlenecked.
well glad to here someone also has the issue of upgrading video and not getting better graphics. let me know if anything improves, when i moved it up or down it changed by like maybe 1-2 fps avg. so i just considered that minimal change.
