Well, if I kicked my machine I would actually start crying. Firstly, it's a bit heavy, secondly, I spent over 2 grand on that machine. 1 kick does not equal 2 grand I'm afraid. So anyway, here's my deal! A sad one actually. I'm getting lower than X800 standard with a X800 card .(which I spent $600, so hear me out here) It's not ten or twenty frames, it's actually more like a 40 - 100, into the "low" 30s and 40s. I have the latest DirectX 9.0c and the Catalsyt 4.11 Beta, turned all the settings in the Control Panel to Application Preference except for TruForm, which is off. So here are my questions: 1. When I DXDiag my machine, everything is fine, no conflicts are happening etc. Basically my machine doesn't detect any problems with it. Could it be that my card isn't installed properly, physically? You see, there seems to be a minor problem with my card. The plug socket where you plug in the monitor isn't pushed right back in the perfect position, so although my monitor plug is secure on that socket, I can't screw in the side screws. Could this effect my video performance? 2. Could my card, (OEM), have a problem with the Catalyst Drivers as a whole? Should I switch to the Omega Drivers? Thankyou for your time, Toiletman.
