I need some "Expert" help on this. no flames please. Please read it all sorry kind of long
I posted this on other forums but not to much help so far
I just bought a new graphics card for my computer beacuse bf2 and some other games like cod2 dont run well on my old 6800 cheap version. I now have a x1900xtx So thought great i can run max all but i cant
My 3dmark scores are low only 8500 ish if that matters compared to 10500ish that other people get and i had to oc the card to 680/790 to get that 8500
Also games like bf2 on 64man servers at 1200 res dips a lot to 30fps and other city maps it can be lower on avg. Like 40-50-60s mostly 40-50s on 64man servers. That normal on 1200 res for a x1900xtx? and if not oc with CCC dips can go to high 20s
I have a intel cpu which NOW i here sucks for games. I never even heard of amd until now. Anyone ever see ads of amd? Games run much better with the upgrade but i want all i can get out of my card you know?
real problem is what can i do? I would need
new mother board
And i mean what else? Can my harddrive connect or will that be a problem? it has some small blue connector. Thin. I have a old dell xps 4 system the psu is 460wats which is fine can i some how keep the case? it would save me tons of money
Can a Intel pull full frames or is that just not possible? I would really not like to spend all the money.
What is the best up above that i can get? For the cpu i dont want those 1000 bucks versions beacuse one they are only like 5 fps more in reviews and 2 im not that rich
again can i fit a mother board in my old case? i really dont care if it doesnt fit as long as i can plug in/close case and it works
cpu is 3.6ghz ht intel old 560
2gs 533mhz ram ddr2
I read whole guide on reformating at www.tweakguides.com
if anyone asks if software problem
