No OpenGL or Direct3d icons or settings
I hope anyone can help me with this.

I have recently bought a FX5900XT from Pixelview to replace the FX5200 I had installed so I would have a better card for when Halo2 or Half-life 2 comes out.

However after installing the drivers I noticed that I did not have the direct 3d or the OpenGL in the card settings under display properties.

I also noticed some latency in the first level of Need for Speed underground, it is a bith sluggish in the beginning burt after a few minutes the game runs smooth. Any ideas on this???

If ther is anyone out there I would really like to know what is goin on and maybe has some basic settings for this card.

I have aKoolance watercooled Case, ASUS P4P800 Deluxe mainboard, 2.6Mhz CPU, 1GB memory (dual channel), 120GB HDD with a soundblaster Audigy 2 and a Pixelview Nvidia FX 5900 XT (the one with the plasma LCD display)

I really need help with this because I want to know what is wrong. I already started changing some settings but this did not work.

I would relly apreciate anyones help with this issue. (mikec) (xmasmile)

Re: No OpenGL or Direct3d icons or settings
The newer drivers don't seem to have the OpenGL and D3D "tabs" or sub-menus that you are used to from the older versions. All of those settings are still there, but you'll need Rivatuner or similar program to change them. However, the newer drivers do include some additional features like application profiles that are really useful.
As far as the "stuttering" or "lag" when loading levels- it is likely a situation where your system could benefeit from more RAM. You could try to turn some settings down, particularly texture detail...

The settings are there, you just go to your advance display properties and go to your video card tab. Next you double click on performance and quality settings and then the direct3d and opengl settings are below those as a submenu on the left on the main pull out menu.

Here's an example: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v4...ngloptions.bmp

Thanks guys, I downloaded the tool and it is performing as it should be.

I played Unreal Tournament 2004 and its performance exceeded the FX5200 I had before.
