i have a gigabyte 512mb gt 240. I get very unstable fps out of this card, not so much as when im in the game, but every instance that i run it. For example, I ran sc2 at medium and it was giving me a constant 50-60fps while OC'ed through msiafterburner to settings that was deemed stable by a reviewing site(i monitored temps and they were below 50c at load). The next time i turned on my computer or sc2 the game was giving me 30-40fps. The same thing happened with league of legends. It was running 50-60fps at very high and now it won't even give me 50 on high settings. Most recently CS:source - was giving me between 150-250fps on average, never below 120 no matter what was on the screen, I could have 20 death bodies on a snow map and it would still be 120. Now i enter cs_office map and i drop to 70fps when i enter the courtyard... can someone tell me whats wrong with this card? its barely a week old.
Sounds to me like that OC wasn't stable and damaged the card. Just because some website managed to get those settings "stable" on a card they tested doesn't mean every one of those cards will do the exact same thing. Besides, they only tested it for a day or two. You've been running that setting for a week...
on my office pc i have a gt220.but i never like to overclock these low end cards coz
they are NOT meant for gaming so overclocking is out of the question.at very high high and medium the gt220 gets 3 fps in crysis so even if i superclocked it it would hardly make a difference.to play sc2 you need a card like a gts 250 which can plapy nearly every game out there at medium-high settings.GTS 250 can max out SC2 no prob.
?? comparing a gt 220 is like apples and oranges. If what you say is true then a gt220 is even weaker then a 8600 gt. Thats what I had a long time ago and it ran crysis fine on medium. GT 240 is the equivalent of a 9600gt which was a mid-end gaming card when the 9xxx series came out and the 8800gt got converted into a 9800gt. SC2 is most likely because I'm getting bottled necked by my cpu (4600+ 2.5ghz) but what I'm concerned about is LoL and CS:source
