Forget about the drivers that came with the card...they are too old. I also doubt it is a driver problem at all but I was just posting some possibilities.

If you are going to try and upgrade to the 9800SE...just beware because that SE means the memory and core clock are lower than standard 9800 cards.

Your system is also similar to mine...it deserves a 9800Pro instead of a 9600XT. I have playable framerates at 1024x768 with graphics turned to high on Farcry, HL2, etc.

Again, just make sure you don't buy a cheaper OEM, SE or LE model of the 9800Pro. Look at the specs of the card carefully, they should tell you the memory and core clocks. Then go to google and read a 9800Pro review which will also tell you the standard memory and core clocks. If they match, buy it and then hopefully the card comes as advertised.
