FPS issues in game

My machine is a Dell dimension 8300 and i used to have a ATI Radeon 9800 and i could play CSS at minimal graphic option at like 70FPS constant and i just got the Warhammer online BETA and could hardly play it because of lag issues, so i bought the FX5200 because my mother board cant use PCI-E and i don't have the money for a new system.

i had a lot of problems try to get this card to work, e.g. when i tryed to run a game it the monitor would go black and flash "OUT OF RANGE" then when i re installed and updated my drivers it wouldnt let me have my resolution at 1024-768 only at 800-600 and then i re installed them again and every thing was going well until i ran CSS and got a max of 30 FPS and tried to run oblivion which i could play before but i was geting like 3 FPS.

is it just the card or is it a problem i can fix?

would love a fast reply.

thanks for the help.

Probably not a power issue if games play ok.
Could be your computer processor is too slow, not enough ram, driver settings, video codecs, graphics drivers or combination of any of them.

I need to replace a defective ATI Radeon 9800 XT in a Dell XPS. What should I buy?


you can get anything in PCIe If your a mild to moderate gamer or just looking for a replacement I recommend using EVGA brand. I have had very good luck with the nvidia 9800 gts. They are older cards but still have quite a bit of potential. if your a heavy gamer use something nvidia GTX 260 or later they have the newer GPUs.

ATI Radeon x1600 Pro unstable in Dell XPS desktop


If you have the latest drivers installed, try uninstalling them, and going back to the 2nd most recent driver released. Sometimes the latest drivers have issues. Work your way back trying multiple drivers if possible until you find the sweet spot. You might try this website, it has a driver cleaner that removes old drivers. Then try reinstalling the driver of your choice.

Can i put a ati radeon 9550 graphics card in a dell dimension 2400


You can put any graphics card in any machine you just need to install the proper driver
Use to be a jumper on the mother that disabled the onboard video but today I think the soft hardware saves use the trouble.
You can run 2 monitors at one time using the 2 video graphics... card and the one on board just set you display properties

I just bought a PC game called Viva Pinata for my daughter. I had to upgrade the driver for an ATI Radeon 9800 Pro and downloaded the ''Catalyst'' set. I thought this would take care of the problem, but...


turn your graphics settings down.make sure nothing else is running when playing games.Also most games play ok, but a gaming pc works best.And you say your pc is a few years old things slow down over time.make sure u have all service pack updates and windows/firewalls virus removers running in the back ground will really slow you down.disconnect fron net and shut them down

EA Game ''Spore'' - Videocard & Driver Issue


Well, I can solve it but it is somewhat bad news. Basically your video card is not powerful enough. Here are the ATI specs from the EA website;
  • ATI Radeon™ series
  • 9500, 9600, 9800
  • X300, X600, X700, X800, X850
  • X1300, X1600, X1800, X1900, X1950
  • 2400, 2600, 2900
  • 3450, 3650, 3850, 3870,
  • 4850

    and here are NVIDIA
  • NVIDIA GeForce series
  • FX 5900, FX 5950
  • 6200, 6500, 6600, 6800,
  • 7200, 7300, 7600, 7800, 7900, 7950
  • 8400, 8500, 8600, 8800
  • 9600, 9800, GTX 260, GTX 280
    I would recommend buying a new video card. You can pick up a NVIDIA 8400 thru 8600 for about $30 or $40 from Frys.com or newegg.com sometimes cheaper with rebate.

    They are fairly easy to install.

    Good Luck.

    Swap 9800 Pro for 9700 Pro


    You must uninstall the current driver and reinstall the driver for the 9800 Pro first:

    Power supply recommended is 300watt for each, so that is not a factor. It would have to be a driver conflict.
