If M-audio didn't release Vista 32bit drivers for the 2496 sound card last week I would already be in XP setup. Instead I am here wishing to solve it.
Anyway, in counterstrike I get 20fps where I used to get 100 with a slower CPU. Why? My graphics card is a 7800GT and using the 163.69 drivers, is there a better version out there? My CPU is a Opteron 170 at 2.5GHz, I used to have a 3000+ at 2.2. I have 1.5GB of RAM, I could drop in another 512 if it would help. Other games are fine though, such as GTR2 and FSX.
Thanks for reading.
