    Can anyone help I have a Radeon DDR 64MB (my machine specs r below)my old P3 300MHZ, Voodoo 3 PCI runs Unreal with latest driver update stupidly fast at 1024 x 768 but my Athlon 1.2 with Radeon slows down when lighting effects r turned on, also to get a decent frame rate I have to run at 640 x 480, I have all the latest drivers and stuff but i can't work out why Unreal Tournament runs amazingly fast at 1280 x 1024 with EVERYTHING on but Unreal doesn't, any suggestions?, Half Life runs fast but jerky also, Rouge Spear - forget it! Quake 3 amazing at 1280 x 1024 (60 fps with everything on full, weired huh!)<br>
    <b>Specs:</b><br>
    Athlon 1.2 266FSB running Windows 2000 service pack 1<br>
    ASUS KT7V133 Raid with latest drivers<br>

    Soundblaster Live 5.1 card<br>
    Big ass case with 2 coolermaster fans, CPU temp average 51C in bios 61 from ASUS probe (go figure!)
     
  2. You could install via 4 in 1 for your motherboard (i suggest 429) and i could also install win98 insted of win2000 because ati's driver is really bad for win98 (big performance hit) and last with your old voodoo 3 card you could use glide (the best atp ever best performance stablity and image quality) and that you can't with the radeon.<br>
    Hobe is helps

    First of all trust the bios temp. Secondly you're using d3d aren't you? Try open gl.
