Very poor graphics performance after major hardware upgrade.
Alright, first off, here's what I've got:
Gigabyte M55SLI-S4 - motherboard
AMD 64 FX 5600+ - CPU
nVidia 8800GTS (MSI, 320meg vram) - video
G-Shock 2 gig (2x 1gig dual channel) - RAM
Let me know if there's anything else in the way of system info. I'm pretty new with the hardware support in forums thing
I've just recently upgraded my system, so I put a fresh XP install on my system and booted up. Had a few problems with random restarts and odd booting sequences, but was able to fix those with a bios upgrade. So, I installed the latest nvidia 8800 drivers and then installed and ran Oblivion to see how my upgrade would improve gaming. Holy crap, I was able to load a game and, after being able to play for about half a second, the screen locks up and my displays go haywire.
I think it may be my motherboard, though I'm not sure. My cpu seems to be running fine. I ran CPU-Z and found no issues there. The graphics card would be my other suspect, but I thought I'd check and see if anybody had any ideas first.
Thanks in advance.
