Hey people.

I please need help. I have just switched from a nvidia geforce 64 mb card to a ati abit radeon 9600XT-VIO with 256 mb. But when i for an example play counter strike the card seems slower and the game starts lagging. Why is that? the card was suppose to be faster?

I really hope you can answer my question.

Best regards :thumbsup:

Hello,


Did you have to boot into BIOS, and disable the old cards settings, before installing the new card? It may be lagging because the new card is being greatly underutilized because of configuration incompatabilities.


That would be my first guess.

So I'm still right, cause I could have been wrong.

A second guess is that you might need to install the most current drivers, which you can download from the maker's site.

Make sure you followed all the installation and adjustment instructions for your graphics card

Did that cure the problem?

If not, or not completely, you may have to upgrade your power supply.
