something does seem wrong ... it should score 9000 easy on a system like that. I have no idea whats wrong.

Time to RMA the card? Also, Dell Motherboards are utter crap. I wouldn't doubt if you swapped out that motherboard with say a ASUS motherboard, you'd see a huge increase in performance from that card.

I don't care what anyone says, "Dell does not = gaming PC's"

what do you mean rma? is my card defective? how would i tell

and if i bought a different mother board will it be able to connect all the connectors that my currrent mother board has now?

Also what mother board would be recommended?

yeah i didnt catch that about the motherboard being dell, does your computer take atx or matx motherboards? heck, the slowdown might be due to all the bloatware that comes with the dell :D

tsh 11-17-2005 06:21 PM

all the info i know is in that pic

says auxiliary power is that what you mean?

only problem with new mother board is

will it have all the connectors for my fans etc and what would i buy for a cpu cooler?

it has PCI fan connectors ..

i tured off and deleted all dell cra$ long time ago

And here i am scoring 2500 :(. I really doubt that anything is wrong with the card itself if you are not getting artifacts, or display errors the card is probably fine. Only thing I can think of is maybe the motharboard is crap, and did you have another card before and was it NVidia? Sometimes there are conflicts if you switch from an NVidia card to an ATI card.

This has nothing to do with the card, but is that an LCD or CRT monitor your using for a gaming comp? (I'm looking in getting a new one)

Dang!! I'm only getting 5650 with my 6800u.

tsh 11-17-2005 08:50 PM

im using a crt

I installed my old x800xt back in and i lost proformance in bf2

only game i can really test

But 3dmark was the same

What should i do?

buy a new mother board? and a new cpu cooler?

What is the best for me?

lol i really dont like computers
