I’ve had performance issues with my new PC since day one, it’s been all over the place, one minute it’d rip a video at 45FPS next it’d be down to 2FPS, I was thinking it was heat related but sticking a fan in front of it didn’t help.
Next I reseated everything, no joy again. Today I got fed up with it and pulled out the video card, figured I’d try the most basic setup first, and low and behold it all started working well.
Who would have thought this intel integrated chip would be faster than an Nvidia card, it was some weird memory thing I think, anyhow it’s flying like a quad core should now, ripped the same video at just over 80FPS.
I quickly popped down to the place I bought the PC from to swap the video card over and he was busy unpacking a heap of new cards, said he’d have the prices ready for them tomorrow, might have to upgrade I think… those 8800 GTs look pretty good!
