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.

"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-1...

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. :)

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.

the 6850 is on its way back to Amazon tomorrow.

Adrian.

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.
