Upgrade = Downgrade?
Hey, I just upgraded my powersupply, from a 350Watt system, to a 400Watt system. I also increased my RAM from 512pc3200, to 1 Gig of Pc3200, and added a few fans. However when I started up games like Counter-Strike:Source, my frames dropped from about 50-80 average, to 10-30 average, even when I'm standstill.
I also tried out Aquamark3 to double check that it wasnt just source, and when i used to get 50-70k, now i get 10-20k scores.
I installed everything correctly, and double checked. When i put the ram in, I made sure all of my components were placed back. My power connections are all accounted for and I'm running my OS fine, its just when there is any intense graphical processing is when I run into trouble. I also clean uninstalled my drivers, and re-installed them but with no luck.
The only problem I can see is that i have two different manufactures of RAM running in my comp. However i dont think this is the case because both sticks of ram are compatible with my motherboard, and both are pc3200 DDR RAM, 512.
CURRENT PC SPECS:
MB: P4P800 Delux W/800mghz FSB
CPU: P4 2.4 w/Hyperthreading
RAM: 1 Gig Pc3200
VIDEO: 6800BFG GT OC
Has this happend to anyone, or does anyone have any suggestions? Im kinda stuck in the mud and i've run out of options.
