  1. WHat "gpu meter"? As long as the PSU is sufficient, and your MB supports PCIe 2/2.1 cards, you might simply be dealing with old 'gpu meter' software and/or OS, whatever that is...

    What chipset/socket format/cpu and OS are you running?
  2. its the latest from gadgets in windows 7
  3. The mb is dell og932. Windows 7 ultimate 64bit dual core processor(srry, not comp savvy at all) pentium d 840?
  4. i955x is the chipset...
  5. It supports it. You'll be fine. Just make sure to install the latest drivers from NVidia/AMD.

    AMD cards don't have a "shader clock" that's why.

    What card did you put in there?

    You might need a new PSU.
  8. What is the new video card -- and are you sure it's performance is any better than the old one that it replaced (Newer isn't always better !)
  9. I replaced a zotac gt 220 nvidia w/ a msi r5770 hawk. the power supply is a 375w. thx again guys :)

    Ok so it's definitely an upgrade.

    Right now I would have to say the PSU isn't able to give it enough juice. I think it recommends a 500W PSU, which you won't actually need that much but it kind of covers it's ass if you buy a low quality one that doesn't have a lot of amperage on the 12V rail. I've seen it happen several times that the card can't get enough power so the speed just isn't there.

    If you get a Corsair, Antec, Seasonic PSU you could make do with a 450W model for sure, probably a 400W would work.

    Also make sure you remove the Nvidia drivers.
