  1. OK
    I just got my NVIDIA Geforce 7900 GT.

    Steps:
    1) Uninstalled ATI Raedon x300 XPRESS Series (came with the computer)
    2) Turned off the computer and inserted the Nvidia Geforce card in (it's a XFX btw) like the manual said
    3) Started it back up and installed the drivers
    4) Went to 'Setup' (when startin the PC) and changed Video Mode to PCI-E and disabled all BIOs except the sound

    I go to start a game to test it out and I still get the same FPS. I wouldn't expect to get the same FPS as I did with the integrated graphics so I'm stuck and confused to why it's (exactly) the same FPS.

    I have checked my display adapters and I only see "NVIDIA Geforce 7900 GT" and it seems to recognize it's installed correctly.


    Comp. Specs:
    AMD Athlon
    Windows XP
    512MB

    I'm probably going to build a new computer from scratch with this card LATER on but right now I want to use this with this computer.

    Give more detailed specs about your computer.
    Does 7900 have an additional power supply?..is it pluged in correctly?
    Your getting the same FPS most likley because your Vid card stays in software mode.
    P.S: try reseting default values for bios i don't think you have to disable stuff in bios.
