  1. Hi everybody. I would like some help with this please.
    I have some performance problems do my video card. Like lock ups slow performance in my games and slow FPS. Plus i think my computer is slowed down by it. All my drivers are update including motherboard bios. Do you think i may need a new video card or just an bios update for the one im using. GPU clock(videocard 250MHz /Memory clock 196mhz. My motherboard is a giga-byte GAK8NS nforce 3 250 chipset. 1 Gigabyte of DDR 3200 ram.

    Thanks again.
    Winlin

    What games are you trying to play?

    That card is..... well..... how nicely do you want me to put it? :)

    For the newer games out today, that card just isn't powerful enough. Not even close really. You can turn down all the graphics settings in the game, and that will help a bit.

    i got that same card about 3 weeks ago and it it sooo bad. i have been trying to get it working but it still stuffs up. well sometimes it will work fine and the next it doesnt work at all. when it did work i could play most of the newest games out and had no problem.
