Want to get my old Dell xps 700 currently running with a radeon x1900 series card in it to be able to run BF3 and MW3.
Upgrading the card seems to be the better option then buying a whole new system. Any ideas for a great card to keep
this beastie going a bit longer untill i can get a better system
Also the thread should read as a X1900 series card installed not X1700
Yes i suppose it does seem pretty high but then buying or building a system would cost a heap lot more hence
getting a new gpu ! Still the rest of the peripherals work fine and a game console would be around the same price.
Bought the Amd Radeon HD 6850, it installed ok rebooted and i now have a VERY large screen to play with . Only problem is that i cannot get it to see the Dell 3007 WFP as having a native resolution of 2560x1600 it can only see it as 2048x1536 and will not
look for a update on the web...... any ideas as to how to get an updated driver into the system ?
Yeah i got the Gigabyte 6850 Oc 1G, downloaded the latest catalyst Version 11.11 :V3.0.0.0851C
and installed ~ No change had a look thru the booklet (when all else fails read the manual)
and it looks like it only goes up to 2048x1536 where as the old X1900 XTX would go all the way
to 2560x1600 and being only 512mb and pretty old go figure ???. Any other ideas folks
I found a Forcing Maximum Performance Clocks under the
AMD Overdrive™ for AMD Radeon™ HD 2400 Series and Later
option but i dont think that is it.Cant seem to find the
'set maximum resolution' option ?. Tried installing star wars
the force unleashed to see if all was well when trying to play
a game with this card and it just displayed as if it was being
played on a screen way bigger then the one i have about 1/3
of the screen was viewable !.Oh man this is going nowhere
fast. Any help appreciated guys
Ok the game is now behaving itself after resizing the screen to lower resolution ~ weird the screen size
did get smaller but the prob with the pc screen size being vlarge is still there. No one have any ideas
cant get any help via dell or anyone else
