I had this problem for a while now, my friend gave me his nvidia GeForce 9800 GT 512 and now i am having the same damn FPS problem,
OK its simple I cant run every game on high exam.... COD BLACK OPS on highest but i cant run it on low, if i set it only low the frame rate goes down,
SO there is no way for me to lower the settings without lossing FPS so that makes almost every new game unplayable cause if the FPS on highest is 50 , on low it would be 10 FPS, and there is not way to gain performanse by lowering the details.
Also my friend didnt have the problem, only me, i downloaed the newest drivers for the card on the Nvidia site, my friend suggested that i download it from the Gigabyte site but i dont know why.
Also the frame rate is almost the same on every option
Just made a test, i tried to play Final Fantasy 7 for PC and the frame rate is only 28 , i mean WTF, i can run Black Ops, crysis on highest on better FPS.
