done with nvidia!

by justanothernoob / February 24, 2006 1:27 PM PST

yup thats right im done with it but im not really sure if i should be. See i have a pretty nice nvidia SLI rdy mobo and a EVGA 7800 gtx it justs i have never really been impressed with my graphics. Like most of the time when i play games i get this kind of graphic ripple on the screen or maybe alittle studdering and thats not even really playing games like fear witch has a kind of slow motion drag of the graphics with it and now im thinking i should have went with a ATI GPU. But if i did lets says buy a X1900XT CF and new PSU then a new ATI crossfire mobo in the future should i exspect better performance then what i have now or would it all be the same?

Thanks for the help,

dont blame the graphics card as it could be from other factors that you are experiencing these problems.

have u thought about overheating? or say a faulty graphics card which u couldve rma'd.

how about listing the specs on your computer?

and graphic ripple? what do u mean by this?

and u said that u would buy a new psu if u get an ati card? so i am assuming u know u already have a lack of power? now i may be wrong...

lol sorry i forgot

X2 4800
2 GBs of XMS ram
EVGA 7800 GTX 256 gpu
500Watt PSU
nvidia nforce4 SLI rdy MOBO
and 5 total fans

And about the psu no i think mine is fine im just going to get a new one for future needs.

about the ripple it kind of looks like a line where the graphics are all messed up like srambled idk. Altogether i know something has to be wrong cause a 500+ GPU card cant be this crappy.

Thanks again,

what settings have u got on the games? maybe there set to high? have u tried turning down the settings? maybe try returning the card and getting another one? latest drivers?

ya, seems like it is the video card.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
