I com computer literate to a point, i built my PC. I just updated my videocard. I bought ATI Radeon 9600 XT.
My Current computer specs are:
P4 2.4 Ghz
768 Mb of Ram
80 Gb HD
I have an AGP slot that is 1x/4x compatible
I bought this card from newegg.com, in its description it says it is 8x/4x compatible, but the link to the descriptions says this "VGA ATI RADEON 9600XT 256M 8x"
I try to play HL2 and CS Source but it freezes along with my whole PC, it only freezes when i play the games, and i have all my settings on the reccommended ones. I did a video stress test and it averages 83 FPS. I downloaded and updated drivers. Is it possible there is a problem with my BIOS setup and if there is how can i fix it and how can i update my BIOS if i have to? Is there anymore information i have to give to get the right advice? just wondering any helkp would be wonderful.
BTW I plan to return the videocard tomorrow around noon or 3 oclock depending on the posts i recieve, i have my old vid card in my PC right now, if anything thing comes up please post. I am a new user to this website.
