Hi, ive had my Gainward 7600gs agpfor almost a year now, and there has been 1 general issue which i have known about but have not been bothered to find out.
-In every game i play, mainly counter strike source, quake 4, doom 3, stalker, fear etc, i get a decent fps. On maxed out detail on, say, counter strike source, i average about 40 fps. If i try to boost my fps, by lowering the detail, nothing happens, even bringing it down to 640x480 resolution does nothing to boost my fps, possible even makes it worse. I have no idea why this is happening, (possibly cpu bottlenecking performance?), and any help would be appreciated.
Btw, im using nvidia driver 169.21, however i have tried plenty of drivers and none solve my problem.
