Your particular video card might also be too slow for Vista - especially any version of Vista other than Home Basic. What’s worse is that you have a PCI video card, which is much slower than a comparable card in AGP. And some PCI video cards are actually slower than the latest motherboard-embedded graphics.

So, if you’re using a PCI video card, I’d recommend upgrading to an AGP video card for that motherboard.

In addition, you might not have the correct chipset drivers installed on your Vista installation. This is the INF utility to use for your OS.

i dont think so it said vista ready on the box and i just picked the video card up tonight at best buy you think that card is bad i had a nvid mx 400 in my pc before tonight lol any ways the new card they have the drivers already for vista i have no slow speeds with vista at all just that dvd problem i will check into that inf thing you where talking about maybe i will take the video card back and see if they got the agp but im not really a hardcore gamer i mostly build websites and stuff so i have no use for a $300 top end grafix card thanks for the responce
