Hi all, I recently searched this on the net and couldn't find an answer, so I thought it best to ask here: I'm currently running an ATI X800XT in my system. However with several games, I'm getting very low FPS compared to the benchmarks people made. For example, Need for Speed: Carbon has a minimum spec of 64mb video RAM. I have way above that (256mb) and can't go beyond around 25 FPS! The funny thing is it dosn't even matter about the video settings I've set - high or low - I still get the same results... Another example is House of the Dead III - which I couldn't get above 40 FPS no matter what. Again, when I decreased the settings, no difference occured, and I was still getting 40 FPS. I had set the frame cap to 60 FPS too. I know that sometimes the Catalyst settings can interfere with the performance too, So I decided to set all these at minimum. Alas, again, this made no difference in any game I played. I have several other suspicions as to what's causing it. My processor is an Intel Celeron D running at 3.20 GHZ. However despite its poor power, the LED in the case never even flashes whilst playing games like Carbon, which as far as I can tell means it's having to do nothing - so why would that slow it down? I don't think it's my RAM, as I have a decent 1GB of it. Besides NFS requires half of that. Is something up here? Or is my PC getting old (already!) ? I'd really appreciate some assistance here, as my PC dosn't seem to be meeting the experience that similar people are having...
