Ati Radeon 9500 from Saphire probs

got some probs with my new ati radeon card. With all 3dgames i cant manage to get higher then about 20 frames a sec, and that is real annoying.
With counterstrike i managed to get first 70 fps on a resolution of 1600, with a geforce II GTS/Pro, now i get like 20 fps, and it keeps on bouncing with this card, it also seems to crash on 4* agp :'(

Anyone can help me with this cause it sucks like hell :/

  1. Did you try to format your disk and reload windows. Probally its your nvidia drivers are still leeched on. I think theres something called Det Distory'ers. But i dunno the link for it.

    I been registered here for too long :-\
  2. Could be your crappy VIA chipset. I recommend a nice BX board, you can find the Asus CUBX for around $20 on eBay.
