Last night I went to Best Buy (ugh) and got myself a PNY industries Verto GeForce FX 5500 gpu card. I installed it and It more than doubled my framerates. i was at 20-25fps before the new card. Now i'm at 35-50-60fps depending on what game is running.
Ok, I know this isn't the most top of the line GPU out there, but it was in my price range. I was wondering how to overclock it, and any other options I could tweak to make it run better. I mainly just want to increase/stabilize my framerates. I will be checking for newer drivers later tonight. Here are my spec's
i also think I shoulf add that my mobo doesnt have AGP so I got a PCI card.
please dont flame me for that...
eMachine Factory made
Intel Celeron 1.3Ghz slightly OCed to 1.5Ghz
Windows XP Home (no service packs)
(I also realize that this isn't the best system)
i also can't figure out how to run nView so I can use 2 monitors with 2 desktops. i just want to play CounterStrike and talk to people on AIm at the same time without having to minimize CS and lag up my comp. I'll work on that later also. if any of you are familiar with nView, feel free to give suggestions.
thanks for any input
