    ATI wins some, Nvidia wins some....no two cards (based at the same level) will perform the same in games, and drivers are the same.....some are great, some not so...from both campss!!

    As others have said, the 6200 demands different things from your system than the 2400 does, and to be fair, other than for video playback, the 2400 is a bit of a sucker.
    What psu are you running?? Are your Guru specs correct??

    I would agree with you, but this isn't the case. Because using Geforce Cards, from the FX5500 to the 6200, i never have this issue with games. And i never had this issue when using older Radeon cards with older drivers. But for the first time ever since i bought the Visiontek 2400 card, i have run into horrible problems with about 50% of all my games, and i have over 400. It could be the card, or it could be the driver, i think its the driver IMO.

    Yes,
    WindowsXP Home Edition SP2, Intel® Pentium III, 600MHZ, Intel(R) 828101AA AC'97 Audio Controller, 120GB Western Digital Internal HD, 500GB My Book Edition External HD, Second External Western Digital - My Passport Essential 160GB External USB 2.0 HD Sunny Yellow Edition, USB. 2.0 PCI HighSpeed Card, 512Megs of Ram, 90(Watts) PSU, Visiontek 2400 HD PCI

    Had this computer since 2000, working great ever since :)

    I have Crysis Demo on my computer, i test it out with certain drivers. Its unplayable using my 2400 HD and 6200. However, using my 6200 i get 12-19fps and its playable up to the first mission, the GPS mission, then its becomes unplayable. Using my 2400 with Crysis, i can't even get pass the first bad guy, the card can't handle the game, but my 6200 runs the game better.

    Crysis is not a demanding game like some think. At the menu scene my fps are at 18fps, the game load up pretty quick and using my 6200 its playable up until the first GPS mission. So yea i am pretty sure i can run Crysis if i had the right card.

    I'm not a troll, from what i can see, it seems like nobody is reading. I never had any major trouble with games, until i bought the Visiontek 2400 HD. My only guess its the card or its the drivers, because i have use radeon cards in the past, but never had thi issue either. I think its the ati drivers, i am pretty sure on it.

    I am going to buy the 8400GS 512MB PCI card soon, and if i don't run into these issues, well i was right all along. But as i said, i never any trouble with games until i bought the 2400 :wanker:

    Just stop. Your system sucks and is not good enough to play most new games at a good fps. The End

    My computer doesn't suck. I can use the internet fine, play music, use apps well, and game pretty good. My computer is old, but its far from being a bad computer. I hear alot of people complain about how these new ati drivers are not as good as the old, and they are right. The facts point to it, ati is messing up their drivers. I plan to buy a new compuer soon, with a Diamond 4870 and i hope by then, the drivers are fix.

    peace

    In a few hours or in a few days i am buying the new 8400GS 512MB DDR3 or DDR2( not really sure on it ) PCI card, but i plan on buying a new secondary computer mid oct 2008.

    If you want to make your PC feel "right", don't ever look at PCI cards again. I mean it's year 2008 and we have second revision of PCIe in the wild. Oh, there were 4 revisions of AGP in between that you skipped completelly.
    When you skip 6 generations of anything in PC world you can be well sure your PC is completelly outdated. PCI cards are only in domain of admins that want to play something on servers where any kind of AGP/PCIe slots is non existent.

    90watts? you mean this pc runs on solar power cells generating electricity from the same computers power and hdd leds? ok, MAYBE it's enough for this machine(although I remember having better PSU with a P3-450/128MB RAM/Geforce 256 32MB SDR machine)but anyway why do people with crap hardware always want to prove it's the software that's the problem?

    Like "help my Pentium III computer does not run Vista. Vista is crap! XP works MUCH better! I wait for Windows 7!"

    I actually think the reason for those FPS drops could be because of your PSU being 90W, not because of drivers... :rolleyes:

    But you are not listening, i made it clear that those issues which i have with my 2400 , i don't have with my Geforce cards. I never had any issues, or major ones with games as i do now until i bought the 2400.

    I just place a order for the 8400GS 512MB PCI card, if that card runs games just fine, then it was the ati driver all along or the card in general. So monday everyone will find out. :banana:

    This is the sticker off my PSU, i put it on one of my Xbox games covers:
