Guys two weeks back i purchased new gpu for my rig which is :- nvdia gt630 1gb ddr3 (importer name forsa) it worked like a charm.
my rig specifications:-
Mobo:- intel mercury 945
Cpu :- e4600 2.40
2gb ddr2 ram
Intex 450 watt psu
Now when iwas playing darksiders and crisis 1 on low settings on my pc i got really good fraps60 - 100 on a resolution of 800* 600 and on low settings. Now after ending these games. I upgraded from xpsp3 to windows 7 ultimate. And played nacrovision on it it also ran good and even 50-60 fraps on medium settings. While playing nacrovision my gpu behaved strangely an started giving low gpu usage. I managed it some how but now iam trying to play prototype 2 .which dosent even give more than 15 fps no matyer what the settings are no change in frame rate. I even downgraded to xp again but in vain. I dont know what went wrong or what might be the reason for this. The gpu usage on crysis , prototype 2 does not go above 50%
Where as if i run a rendering test it jumps off to 98-99% plese suggest a solution . Iam really dis appointed with performance. Especially after ExPeRiEnCe of what this card can perform.

1. Windows 7 needs at least 2GB of memory to even just work properly by itself, so you basically have no RAM left for a game/anything else, and since your card has only 1GB of it's own memory, all of this goes into drain very quickly when you try playing modern games.

2. Basically, your video card isn't powerful enough to handle such games as Prototype 2. OS and settings has nothing to do with it.

You need to upgrade your memory (getting at least 4GB of memory, and for that you should install Windows 7 64 Bit, since 32 Bit Windows 7 or XP won't recognize more than 3.3 GB of memory, while 64 Bit Windows 7 can recognize up to 128GB!) and buy yourself a new video card. And since your PSU is quite old and weak, you would need to get a new PSU too (something with at least 550W of Wattage, so that it can use low-end modern video cards of "HD 6770/HD 7770, GTX 560/650" levels).
Sorry, but there's no easy way out in your particular case. Your hardware is outdated quite much, it really is the time for an upgrade, man. As much as you may not like it, it's the truth.

So if you'll do decide to upgrade after all, the first things you should start from are PSU and GPU, then you can change motherboard, processor and memory.
For the best results you should get more memory before you install a new motherboard with new processor and install 64 Bit Windows, that way your freshly installed 64 Bit Windows will recognize all memory right away and won't be chocking on the "2GB". Remember, 4GB is an absolute minimum these days (2GB for Windows, 2GB spare for simple tasks and medium-level games), 8GB is for very solid gaming, and 16/32/64/128GB is pretty much overkill for anything except for 3D-modeling and Video/Image-editing software (Photoshop or Sony Vegas PRO).

Like that will help him much.
It's GT 630, man. Prototype 2, man. Have you seen Prototype 2? It's not the most resource-consuming modern game out there, but GT 630's not the card for it...AT ALL. :\

His GPU chokes to death because it's out of memory.
Of course it's wrong, but it's not something "wrong because of the bad/faulty GPU", it's wrong because it's not powerful enough and he literally tortures it with hungry modern titles.
He's out of memory, that's what's wrong. Completely, absolutely.
It goes into throttling and he gets ultra-low FPS even considering that it would be bad even at lowest settings. His card and system just can't bear such treatment anymore.
Let them breathe, man...let them breathe... :\

The original Crysis will actually run on almost any dedicated card if you turn the graphics down enough. I play it on my 4yo Core 2 Duo laptop w/ 512mb Radeon 4530M (See desktop HD 4350) on a mix of low/med/high at 1366x768.

But yeah. His problem is his ram. I have 4gb and even thats not enough for some games I play. While playing memory intensive games like SWTOR I often hit 90-98% mem usage under win7.

If u want your video card to work good: change your games settings (within the game) and Nvidia main settings, reconfigure your virtual memory and max your resolution. this is if u can't afford more RAM or a bigger video card.

>98% Memory Usage
It's actually not because the game is "memory intensive", it's simply because BioWare's are a bunch of morons with their hands growing out of their asses.
It's just VERY badly optimized, it's not like it eats tons of resources because it has any super-duper graphics or physics to offer.
And even considering it's MMO, it's not such a vastly big of a game to eat so much memory to render 10 people on a 2km-by-2km area. It's just a poorly written code all over the place.
Look at Guild Wars 2, it's 100500 times better-looking and it's HUGE, but it works absolutely fine with just 4GB even on the most maximal maximums, and not choking at all.

For a new, low-level modern GPU? No. It won't be enough even for such power-efficient beaut as HIS' HD 7770 iCooler (THE least power-consuming GPU on the market right now).
Especially if taking into consideration that your GPU isn't the only thing that's powered by your PSU.

Never said it was about the graphics. Its about The memory usage. It is VERY memory intensive, using 2-2.6gb average at any given time. Thats alot when you only have 4gb to work with.


And OP, yeah, you may want to consider about $300 worth of upgrades for your system if you have money. New GPU/PSU and another 2-4gb ram.

To render graphics (and models, on which those graphics will be applied later) memory is needed too, ya know.. :\
Everything uses memory in one way or another.

it's hd 7750 not hd 7770.

Technically you are right, but I don't even consider 50's and 30's as a worthwhile enough cards to even mention them.
For me personally it all starts from 7770s.
Based on my personal experience of dealing with all of those I can pretty solidly state that it's the lowest level anyone should really consider getting, ever.
Everything that's lower shouldn't be even considered as an option, in my opinion.
Well, at least that's my opinion on things, an opinion of a man who personally deals with these things on almost daily basis, you might not agree and you'll probably won't, and it's fine.
Basically, when I say that "HD 7770 is the most power efficient GPU on the market right now", I absolutely ignore 30's and 50's, like they don't exist at all. Not worth mentioning.

For your CURRENT hardware, yes. But if you start upgrading and get a modern GPU - no. It won't be sufficient anymore.

Crysis 1 is heavily GPU dependent but not prototype ! - you will have low FPS with that processor :)

guys all i want to ask is that when i installed this gpu crysis and darksiders was working fine but now the gpu usage is not passing above 60% but before it used to go to 99%(both times on xp ... i have installed xp now no same results ) what might be the the reason for such sudden fall .
and why was it working fine before . i cant upgrade my mobo and cpu all ican upgrade is my ram and psu . tell me if that can make a difference . guys iam not a heavy gamer i only play games to kill my time and i dont games on high resolution or heavy settings . so gt 630 is enough for me . what i cant understand is that if my cpu is bottelnecking my gpu why was it working before .

Maybe you have a virus, or, most likely, your HDD starts failing. Usually old HDDs that are at the end of their life cicle can cause quite major lags in games and other applications, even if other hardware's in a good state. Check your HDD's state with "Crystal Disk Info" or other similar software.
