Hey, I just upgraded, details at left(<--), and I think I may be expecting too much from my vid card. I had an ATI 9550, and was able to run BF2 at medium settings, with a couple set to high(geometry and textures), with a hefty overclock. Now, Iam running BF2 at the same levels, and my new card is 'supposed' to be worlds better, but it gets sketchy any higher. WTH?? It is overclocked, to 552/540(1080), so whats going on?? I'm using 6.1 drivers, minus Catalyst Control Center, and ATITool to clock. I used ATITool to clock the 9550 also. I don't get it.:frown: *EDIT* I took my soundcard out, a Turtle Beach Riviera, in favor of the onboard 8ch., but would it load the CPU that much?
