Nvidia 9500GT frame rates

I recently bought a Nvidia 9500GT (1gb) and installed it on my friends system [ Amd X2 4600+ , Asus M2n - SE, 2gb ram]. I installed the appropriate Forceware drivers [v.178]. Then i installed the recently released ''PRINCE OF PERSIA'' and it ran very fine even in ULTRA High settings. I got solid Frame rates. Now I installed the same card in my system. [Amd X2 5000+, Asus M2n - SE, 1.5 gb ram] . When i installed the game, i was shocked to see that the performance is very low. when the game initiates , for 2min it will run very fine in VERY HIGH settings with Anti - Aliasing and V-Sync ON. Then suddenly the frame rate will drop drastically. and again after 2 min it will run fine... then again the frames drop. Its keeping on cycling. Even if i play in ''very low'' settings also, its the same. I even installed the latest drivers [V.181.20]. This is happening for every game.I installed all the recent games and the same thing is happening. Then i installed a 4 year old game ''Age of Empires 3''. Even this is not running properly.For a while it will run at nearly 60fps and next it will drop to 15fps, again it will increase to 60fps... What might be the problem? If anything is wrong with the card, it shouldn't have worked well on my friends system!!!!!!!

    I did a clean install of XP before installing the Graphic card.I installed the latest 181.20 version forceware drivers. Then i uninstalled them and reverted back to the 178.version which worked fine on my friends system. Still the same. If  i get low frame rates for 2min of the game time, then the game will run well for the next 2min. Hope u can understand what im trying to say. It just seems like a loop.

    Im Using Norton Antivirus Gaming addition 2009 and its pretty light.and i even tried playing after disabling it. And both the systems are WIN XP SP2.  And the other solution by 1400slugg is not helpful.

    Have you tried the AMD Dual-Core Optimizer program? Some games assume that the in-core clocks are synchronized and this just isn't the case. I'm not sure why it wouldn't have been a problem with your friend's system then, but they are slightly different procs, so it's worth a shot. This is a very strange problem!

  • Zeniff Hathaway May 11, 2010

    what operating system are you runing on both systems.

  • fehknt May 11, 2010

    Are you running antivirus? (And have you tried it without if you are?)

  • Thomas F. Schneider May 11, 2010

    Did you uninstall the old card software and driver?

Put 2 1gb sticks in your system. 1gb in the first slot on the black channel and 1gb in the first slot on the yellow channel. your system will run faster in the duel channel mode.

The ASUS A7N8X only supports AGP8X, the 9500GT is PCI Express. There is no way the 9500GT will work with this board.

It seems like you have either a thermal problem (processor cooler defective, undersized or incorrectly mounted) or a defective power supply. I'm about 90% sure that the problem is thermal.

I have Nvidia Geforce 9500 GT graphics card ...I recently bought my system...4 GB corsair ram....1 TB hard disk...400 W Cooler master PSU...Classic intel H55 motherboard...Still when play Gta or NFS hot...


How can I state this politely?

The Nvidia GeForce 9500GT is a definite step up from using Integrated Graphics.
No debate needed there.

But it only has 32 Stream Processors.

Think of Stream Processors as a 'Graphics Information Highway'.
They are essentially the lanes of the highway.
The more lanes you have, the more graphics information can be transferred from the graphics card to the Processor, and vice-versa.

Having 32 Stream Processors is like having a 'Bottleneck' in the road.
Equate that to a roadblock put up for road construction, where 8 lanes are dwindled down to 1 lane.
Traffic slows down.

This is seen when using intense games. Frame rates drop down, the game freezes, and graphics are poor unless on low settings. (Or not at all)

Here, take a look at Evga's version of the Nvidia GeForce 9500GT graphics card.
Read the Specifications at the bottom, watch the video.

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4111742&CatId=3669

However!
A decent graphics card shouldn't 'Break the Bank'.

You don't need a $500 graphics card to slam those games.
You might want to look into an Nvidia GeForce GT 240 graphics card.

96 Stream Processors.
512MB of DDR5 graphics ram memory. (That's DDR5)
550MHz Core Clock
1340MegaHertz Shader Clock
3588MHz Memory Clock

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=5516908&CatId=3669


Better than that?
Nvidia GeForce GTS 450 Superclocked.
1024MB of DDR5 graphics ram memory.
192 Stream Processors.

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=6655890&CatId=3669

For the above two graphics cards you need a decent power supply.
IF, the power supply you have DOES produce an honest maximum wattage of 400 Watts,
AND has at least 30 Amps on the 12 volt power rail. (Or 12 volt power rails), you're okay.

I would recommend an OCZ StealthXStream 2 / 600 Watt power supply though, when you can afford it.
It can produce over 700 watts if kept at a temperature of 48.4 degrees Celsius.
(119.12 degrees Fahrenheit )
Has FOUR 12 volt power rails that can supply up to 18 Amps EACH.
(Total of 72 Amps)

Has all the power cables you'll need, plus ones for the above graphics cards.
(Can handle them with NO sweat)

Blue screen of death.


You might try setting the display adapter in the bios to PCI-X,
You could also try going into safe mode to see if you can install the new drivers and fix the problem.
Other than that you would need to stick the card in another computer and confirm whether it is functional.
I have the exact same card with Vista and had no issues, and have been very happy with it.

I wanna know that is XFX 9800gt supported on intel DG31PR motherboard or any PCI express motherboard ? I also wanna know that is it a good combination of 9800gt DDR3 1gb and DDR2 RAM 2gb?? Please reply me...


nVidea 9800gt is a good card... probably not a question of if the MB will support it as much as if your power supply will. It needs a secondary 6 pin power connection.

Any MB with 16x PCI slow will run the board. The different RAM types on the MB and Video card will nto matter as much as the throughput of the PCI bus...

2GB ram on you main board, hope you are not running anything serious.... I do a fair amount of video with a 9500GT. Quad Core 2.66, 6 GB ram and am looking to upgrade to an I7 with 12GB and a nVidia 250 or better....

My memory goes down


Switch to Ubuntu. ;) If that's not an option then maybe aquire some more RAM. The only way your performance would decrease is if the card is using some of your available memory, that is your install 1GB of RAM. If that's not an option, purchase a USB thumb drive 2GB + and use the ready boost feature in Vista.
