getting more laggy

it's getting more laggy each time now!!!

today i tried to play pro evo 5 on low settings (800x600 with low settings)..this is the settings i was playing with no lag with my old geforce 4mx!!! with 512mb ram!!! and there was no lag!!!

how come now with 1.5mb Ram and a geforce 7600 it's getting lag even with such low settings...the graphics is very very ugly and there's still lag!!!

getting desperate!!! how come it lags like this!??!?!!

I bet it's the heat. My 6800 does the lag bit if I oc it from 350 (stock) to 400 and play games. No oc and it runs normaly. 60c in 2d is way too high far as I am concerned. Mine runs at like 52 in 2d.
60C in 2d is normal for 6800s isn't it? My old one ran at 64C when idle, and it got to about 75C playing games. But the thermal cutoff temp is 135C so that's actually pretty low. And I've heard that 7 series cards have around the same cutoff... so unless it's like 110C or something its not really that bad.

Hey there, I was doing a search for topics on my soon-to-arrive 7600GT, and came across this.

It's a shot in the dark, but it could be that your performance issues are not related to the graphics card at all, but to your hard drive settings. Perhaps you could check to see if your drive might have defaulted to PIO mode to due an excessive number of read/write errors - perhaps due to a recent defrag?

Just make sure that in your Device Manager > IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers > Primary IDE Channel (or whichever channel your HDD sits on) that the transfer mode is set correctly.

the channels are in dma mode.... i analysed my HDDs..there's loads of red lines...shud i defrag..my HDD's total size=about 200mb!!!! this may take forever...will format instead in 2 weeks.... will post result whether the lag will disappear...

my card is a geforce 7600GS not GT ...GT is much better i think!!! it has loads of very good reviews!!! go for it!!!

Yes I was compelled to

My Geforce7600 plays Doom 3, Half Life 2, Prey, The Suffering, Condemned and Dark Messiah on either high or ultra high quality withoutthe slightest drop in framerate, but unfortunately a game like Boiling Point does have some disk swapping and bottlenecks. Rather annoying. The card is able to play Oblivion and run acceptably, but behaves strange in other less demanding applications. By the way, did you get to fix that problem after all?
