MSI 6600GT pci-e. How should i know its ok?
 
hi there!!
Its my 1st post and i want to know something for my new card
I just bought an MSI 6600GT pci-e and i load the 81.85 official
I want to know what tests should i run for checking that my card is ok and there's no problem.
I also wanna know that the results from the tests are ok or not for my card.

Please i want the answers to be a little bit detailed, because i dont know so much about graphics cards !!

My system is:

Windows XP sp2
----------------------
Gigabyte 915P Duo Pro
Intel i915P
Intel P4 3 GHz socket 775
2 x 512 Mb DDR2-SDRAM Kingston
MSI 6600GT 128Mb PCI-e
Western Digital 160 GB SATA


Thanks a lot

Install a game.

Play it.

If it works, it's fine.

Really if you want to benchmark it to see it is working then a synthetic benchmark like 3DMark will work just fine.

www.futuremark.com

03 or 05 will serve your purpose, 05 will be very jerky though, so use 03 for a smoother experience.

Just download, install and run the default benchmark.

you should get around 8000 points in 3Dmark 03.

Ok i ll run the test.
Another question
I played the half-life2 yesterday
I turn the options to full and the rate to 1024x1028
If the screen is static everything is allright but when i move the mouse left or right quick then u can watch that the objects "breaks". For example a wall it was breaking into some parts. When i stop the movement everything is allright. There's no mouse fluid movement in other words.
Can u tell me why it happens and how can i stop that ?

Thanks in advance

Enable vertical sync in the graphics options, or use the console command max_fps and set it to a number lower than your monitor's refresh rate.

I believe u are talking for the half-life2 only. Is that correct?
If its correct is there any other way to change any options at my card and to have the same result for all the games??

Thanks in advance
