HD 6850 problem !!!!!!!!!!

Hi all.

I upgraded myGPU to Sapphire 11180-00-20R HD6850 1GB GDDR5.

MB Gigabyte GA-MA770-UD3 rev 2
CPU AMD Phenom II X2 550 / 3.1 GHz - Socket AM3 - L3 6 MB
PSU Seasonic S12II-520 520W ATX12V
RAM DDR2 2G KIT pc2-6400 800mhz 4-4-4-12 Dram


I have multiple problems.
Web pages ripple up or down when i scroll.
Mouse and keybord lag, just copying normal text is hardwork.
Dragon Age Origins says no supported graphics cards.
MTW2 wont start at all.
DXDIAG display says DirectDraw acceleration not available although all the tests run successfully.

I have reinstalled DX9 and GPU driver.
I think my PSU should be OK ?

Regards
Adrian.

  2. HD6850 is DX11; which OS is your?
  3. Thanx
    Win XP, winxp doesnt do dx 11 ? what is dx11 ?, confused.
  4. "DirectX is a collection of application programming interfaces for handling tasks related to multimedia, especially game programming and video."

    You can read more here: http://sites.amd.com/us/game/technology/Pages/directx-11.aspx

    The latest games require the latest DirectX
    So getting the latest DirectX drivers is necessary.
    And no , Xp dosnt support DirectX 11, it only Supports DirectX 9.0

    I would recommend to get Windows 7 32-bit. ( 32-bit because you have only 2gb ram)
    Get DirectX 11 ( its free)
    And update your drivers too.
    That might solve the problem. :)
  5. Apologies and thanx
    i gave the wrong RAM
    RAM 2 x Kingston HyperX Genesis 2G 1066Mhz - 4G total
    I do intend to get Win7
    Recommend Nvidia card for upgrade from 8800gts, i like Nvidia.
    Regards

    the 6850 is on its way back to Amazon tomorrow.
    Regards
    Adrian.

    Maybe i should keep it. ?
  6. Well it doesn't matter if you have ATI or Nvidia, if you don't know how to install it, then your going have problems with both.
  7. Confused ?
    Knowhere do i find any statement that win7 is required for this card, and im sure ive read reviews of people running it on xp
