Here is the old thread asking about upgrading the HP computer. I hope this is OK to do - never copied thread and put into another thread.

OK. Are you running Win7? 32-bit or 64-bit? I found some nForce 430 drivers on Nvidia's site, but would have to know which version you are running.

70-91 fps in what game? That could be really good in something like Metro 2033 and really bad in Counterstrike.

Catalyst 11.1 is the latest version on AMD's site. Are you running these?

I just got the updates and it was black ops. My friend told me to raise the ceiling which I did and now the problem is fixed... it was me just being a bit on the dull side again....

Is that driver for use with the 8600gts . That is all well and good - but i want to be able to upgrade not just keep using the 8600. I have a 5770 (sapphire) that I originally bought to use in crossfire with my another 5770 (xfx)- but they are not compatible for crossfire. Tried to use the 5770 in the older HP m8226x - but it failed to work properly- I expect that it was because I did not remove the nvidia drivers before trying the 5770.

Trotter gave you the drivers...... it says "ForceWare" which are the chipset drivers.
