Default I am having a problem with my ATI 4850.

I recently installed a ATI Radeon 4850 (512 MB Ram GDDR 3) in my computer to enjoy some of the newer games. I went to install WAR: DoW 2 and when I launched I got a message informing me I didn't have the graphical capacity to run it. I made sure to download all my driver and the latest Direct X, but I still have the problem. I probed further trying to use sites that test your system requirements for various games and it said my card had only 128 Ram, thus it couldn't run Dow 2. I was wondering if anyoe could help me.

Here are my specs:
AMD Athlon 7750 Dual Core (Black Edition)
4 GB Ram
ATI 4850 Video Card
Windows Vista OS 64-Bit
580 W PSU

Any chance you are still using onboard graphics?

You monitor is connected to the gpu correct?

ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 :: INTEL i7 920 @3.4 :: XFX GTX260 :: 6gb Corsair 1600 :: Corsair 750TX :: TRUE 120 :: Samsung T240 24" :: Windows 7 X64

I do not accept support questions via PM

Yeah it sounds like you're still using onboard to me as well.

Go to Start>run>type "dxdiag" and then go to the display tab and look under the device section and see what you're pushing
