Hi guys. I have a hard mystery to solve. Why did my old PC work a lot faster and i could record a lot better when i upgraded the GPU and on my new one it completely ruined my PC. my old one had an athlon 64 X2 2.0GHz, 3gb RAM and a geforce 7600GT and i upgraded to a GTS 250 and got an amazing boost and everything worked 200% better and faster. But on my newer PC which consists of an Athlon II X3 445, 4gb RAM and a GF 9800gt 512mb and i upgraded to a Radeon HD 6850 it made gameplay recording next to impossible while only improving the performance only on new games. I want to know why did my old system work even better with a lot more powerful GPU and my new one gave with one hand and took with the other. (don't tell me about the nvidia drivers i unistalled them and installed latest AMD drivers)

Without knowing your full system specs and your monitors resolution, it's anybody's guess.

No. I didn't say it outperforms the 6850. I said the old system WAS 200% better than before when i got the 250, not that it was better than my new. My board on the new one is a Biostar N68S3+ and on my old one is a Gigabyte MA-770 UD3

resolution is 1280x1024. But i didn't say that my old system was better in games i said that my old one could record even better than it did before and by that i said that it performs better than itself not the new one.

No. I want to know why does my old machine record better when upgraded to a lot more powerful GPU (better than ITSELF, not the new machine), and my new one now lags to death when recording with a lot more powerful GPU.

Sorry i didn't express myself properly. I meant my old one records better than it did before on a lot more powerful GPU and my new one records worse than before
