Today i picked up a brand new BFG 6800 GT, brought it home, uninstalled the ATI Drivers and reformated to be safe.

I installed my chipset drivers, agp drivers, sound drivers directx 9.0c, windows SP2 and my video card drivers (65.73).

Installed call of duty (openGL game) and was checking my FPS out in different spots on the map compardes to my 9800's performance, in alot of spots where i used to get 150fps+ easily with my 9800 im well below 100 sometimes even in the 50's.

I have vsync off / AA off / AF off and everything set to performance and im even running in 800x600 resolution....

It is confusing me why my friends X800 Pro with the same setup as me (mobo, proc, ram etc.) is getting almost 100 fps more than me in an openGL game when nvidia is supposed to rock openGL games no problem

anyone know a solution?

Does anyone know what the following does in the driver panel under openGL settings:

- Disable support for enhanced CPU instruction sets
- Enable conformant openGL texture clamp behavior


They are both unchecked, should i leave them like that or check any of them?

Dual monitors? And any problems with DirectX games?

Single monitor, no problems on directX at all just openGL

No AA/AF

Leave them both unchecked. Checking the first one would turn certain off CPU optimizations like MMX, SSE, and SSE2. Checking the second one would cause the dreaded skybox issue if the map skybox wasn't properly built.

It's hard to say what is wrong here. Is the drop a continuous/constant dropoff in one or more specific locations? Or is it more of a stuttering dropoff occurring no matter where you are?

There really isn't a way to tell when it happens, its just very very random.

Is this the order in which you installed everything? Because that's not right. It should be this way:

Windows XP
Service Pack 2 (which includes DX 9.0c)
Chipset driver (which should already include AGP)
Video
Sound

It sounds like there's some sort of software and/or driver installation your machine is not liking. Make sure you have AGP 8x enabled in your BIOS and that it shows up this way in your Forceware driver control panel.

Does it only occur after you've died and respawned? Meaning, if you were playing and never died would you still see it during that session or does it only happen after you've been killed and then start again?

Well those screenshots are in my own server while im alive obviously and after i respawn its still the same, on online public/private servers i get even worse FPS.


I installed in the order you listed saturnotaku.

I installed XP which already had SP2 slipstreamed into it
Chipset drivers
my agp driver
video drivers
and finally my sound
