Only got to test it with Combat Arms so far. (I got like 100+ FPS on max settings, lol.) I'm going to try AC2 here in a bit. Should be pretty fun to play now that I won't lag at all.
Yeah man, try something intensive and you'll see how great it is :)

I tried playing AC2. Something was wrong. I was lagging way harder than when I was using my 9500GT. I'm going to check my drivers again...

did you use driversweeper to get rid of the nvidia drivers before you installed ATI drivers+

Seems I missed some of them, thanks for reminding me. :laugh:

I'm going to launch AC2 again and see how it works this time around.

I swear each time Someone has a NV card Previously Installed they have a ass pain trying to install a Non Nvidia video card, I suspect NV drivers are like rootkits now. Ensure if you have WCG or Folding at Home they are turned off as they are CPU driven programs mainly. Reinstall AC2. Check out the AC2 forums aswell, Free Games like that are a Hit and miss sometimes.


Ok

Grab Driver Sweeper and Driver Cleaner Pro
Grab Latest Motherboard driver
Grab Latest Direct X Redist
Unplug Internet cord
Use The Default Driver Removal Technique from NV drivers do not restart
delete the NV directory/folders
delete any NV related registry entries
restart machine
Follow Directions of DCP and DS
run Driver Cleaner Pro and then Driver Sweeper
after DCP and DS are ran and directions followed
Install Motherboard driver (if PCI Express has anything like a GART)
Install Graphics Drivers
Install Latest Direct X Redist

I had uninstalled Nvidia control panel and such using windows install/uninstall manager, but it left some stuff behind. Driver Sweeper and Driver Cleaner Pro took care of the rest. Oh and I zapped all Nvidia folders just in case.

MW2 and other games work great.

For some reason AC2 is still laggy. One second my frame rate is 40+, the next it's 5, then back to 40+. No idea why. MW2 wasn't doing that, and I had it at higher settings.

id say go to their forums for an answer to that. Tell them that all your other games run fine but this one is a PITA

another thing to try is perhaps overclock the CPU to 2.8GHz if possible.
First of all. Going to their forums has solved nothing in the past for me.

Second of all, it ran perfectly fine before. (28-35 FPS with my 9500GT) Why should I overclock my CPU when I don't need to? (I can't afford to replace a CPU at the moment...)

Sorry for your loss perhaps you should try to reinstall the game, sometimes games get configured for a certain card and need a reinit. Also that CPU is possible to OC to 2.8, its not much of a bump compared to 3.2GHz.

Well crap. This will be the second time I've had to reinstall AC2. :shadedshu

I'm honestly rather uncomfortable with overclocking.

Why? these Days, they even integrate it in processors,to be used by ordinary consumers, and name it "Turbo Mode":D

i honestly think, you should try it at least. you can even increase the lifetime of your proc also, with undervolting at the same time;)

In my experience, it's pretty damn hard to fry a modern CPU with a small overclock, unless you're retarded and bump the voltage to something way beyond what an average cooler can handle.

In the event that you do fry it, then that just means you get to upgrade :D

You see, after just shelling out $150 for a 5770, I don't have money for an upgrade. So I'd just be out a computer.

Once I land a job thou... Then I'll start tweaking with overclocking my CPU and GPU.

Well, honestly, you've got to have some horrible luck to fry it from a 200mhz bump. You should be able to achieve it with very minimal voltage increase, if any at all.

No worries man. CPUs are a lot tougher than most think. I dropped my brand new 1090T today out of the retail box! It hit the tile floor and slid. It was still in the plastic case but my heart dropped. I popped it in and shes runnin' good. Lesson? CPUs can take more than idiots can give in most cases.
