Okay just got a new card
SIS 315 AGP 2/4x 64 Meg w/TV out
The card works great, tv out works great, I't was nice watching The Two Towers on my big screen. I've run Nintendo 64 emulators and Playstation emulators perfectly, no problems with DVDs or anything, but...
The first problem I noticed was, UT2K3 wouldn't load, It would get halfway to running and then crash, a popup would come up saying something about a directx problem "a bug" and to install directx 8.1b or higher. I installed the directx that came on the UT2K3 and same problem, I installed directx 9.0 and still the same thing. Dam, so no luck with that game.
I next installed hitman 2, the game ran but veeeeerrrrryy slowly, choppy frame rate etc. so i said **** it.
Next, BF1942 game runs great untill the mission actually loads, then just crashes. bam...
Sim City 4, wont even run at all? WTF?
I have the latest drivers, running the card at AGP 4x (Just moved the jumper over to 2x to see if that helped, It didn't), I have no idea why this card wont work for my for games, I checked every review etc. I could find before getting this budget card and everywhere I looked this card got a ton of love for a cheapie?
WC III Just comes up with a black screen that i have to Ctrl+Alt+Del/End Task out of? I'm at the point where I'm about to reinstall windows just to see if for some reason that works
I don't know can anyone help me out here, or even any advice? TIA
