I have a new EVGA GTX470 in a newly built rig with an EVGA P55 Classified 200 MB. I'm satisfied with the build, however, and it's a pain in the neck however, is that whenever I play video games, especially my dearly beloved Modern Warfare 2, the game loads extremely slow, and when it finally does, the movement of game actions is a set of stops, fits, starts, chop-chop, until I am in the game for about 6-7 minutes, then it starts playing smoothly, but I still occasionally get choppy play, even much later in the game. Card has newest update, no OC on computer. Games are played at native res of 1900-1200 on a 26" Asus.
When I boot up computer I get a long beep, followed by 2 short beeps. Not good. American Megatrends bios site says this beep code is "failure in video system" with "an error was encountered in the video BIOS ROM, or a horizontal retrace failure has been encountered".
I have another computer in the house with an EVGA GTX295 where games including MW2 load and play smooth as silk on an EVGA X58. So I take the card, put it in my new build and I still get the 1 long, 2 short beeps and of course the same crappy operation in video games. Would greatly appreciate any suggestions or feedback on this. Thanks for your time.
