FPS problem
« on: March 26, 2009, 12:47:24 AM »
My current Fps for steam gets is around 40-80ish According to people using the same card as me (9800gt) it should get me around 200 fps. their on windows XP and im on windows vista home basic 64bit. Would it just be because I'm on a different OS?
Reformat is a always a fallback, restore disk is however better than a disk partion

This could be because of a lot of things bud.

Drivers are definitely one of the things that you want to look into.  Make sure that your drivers are up to date, and that you have any patches for the games that you play (steam should do that for you).

The next step would be to look at using a benchmark utility.  By using one, you can find out why your computer isn't living up to it's word.

I suggest viewing this movie from the show, "systm" at revision3.com to help you with just that.
