I have a Intel celeron 766mhz processor, 319MB, and winME.

I recently upgraded my graphics card to a geforce4 MX420 PCI, from an intel integrated card. my fps used to be around 30 while playin cs with my intel card, now with me geforce its from 15-40 but its still slow.... why?! i have updated all the drivers for graphics card etc. i have removed my intel graphics drivers(they always reapear when i restart though) whats the problem?? i ran 3D mark 2001 Se and my benchmark was about 1700!! i compared my result to others with my exact system and they scored above 2000(forgot the exact result) I have directx 9.0 already.... whats the problem??? I was thinking about trading my geforce 4 for my friecds geforce2... maybe my comp cant take the geforce 4??? what do you recommend? i put settings in lowest, highest aaaaaah everything. please help ASAP....thanks...(i know geforce MX's arent good...but they cant be THAT bad...)

*I accually got better fps with my integrated card!!!

Did you disable the onboard video?
Don't expect a PCI video card to have the same numbers as an AGP card. There's a big difference. <br>

Check out the guides at http://www.3dspotlight.com You can find a really good guide for tweaking your video card to get the maximum juice out of it. They have a nice comparison between 'high resolution' and 'high fps' for each of the main videocard settings.

If CS is your game read through this tweak guide . It's posted on a Day of Defeat site but CS & DoD are both Half Life mods so it works great.

..and some games work far better in OpenGL than Direct3d and vice versa... make sure you are using the mode your game prefers.

:cool:
DuD.... happy owner of 100fps in Half Life Death Matches...
