Locked in at 30ish fps
A few weeks ago, i bought a new graphics card so i could run HL2 Episode 1 as best i could. At the time, i was using a 6800GT via BFG. So i bought a 7900GT via eVGA. I got the card, installed it and it begins...
Before installing the 7900GT, i ran some tests in fps of F.E.A.R and HL2 Lost coast. For now, im just gonna give lost coast fps results. My 6800GT came in at 31fps, 32 another.
I install my 7900GT and my fps is 32, 31 anohter. That is so weird to me, i was hoping it was just a faulty card, cause i heard every other one was fault by that model i purchased. So i RMA the card back to newegg, and purchase the badest boy i could find. I bought the ati x1900xtx w/512MB. I installed this card, and again, no change at all. 32fps on one test, 30 on another. Can somebody please explain to me what could be the cause of this?
