Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I just got a evga 7600gt and a 22" widescreen lcd in the mail. I used to have onboard video. Now, I have not been involved in any kind of pc gaming at all for the past 6 years or so, so it is frustrating that when I do upgrade to something that i was reccomended it doesnt work. I upgraded to the newest nvidia driver, put my resolution to the right one (1680x1050).
I bought S.T.A.L.K.E.R. and I got into the Quake wars beta so I installed both. They run like shit, slow as hell. No artifacts though, just shitty framerates even when I really lower the settings.
Is there some test I can do to see if my card is running right? Maybe my motherboard is still using the onboard video somehow? I didnt disable it in the BIOS or anything although i did look and couldnt find an option for that.
I have a 2.8 Pentium D as a cpu and 1 Gig of RAM. Maybe my screen is too big and I should have ordered a better card? If anyone could help I would really appreciate it.
