My posts must be invisble cause I said tha nvidia cards have a PS 2.0 problem 100000 posts down. That's the cause for the low fps. Nvidia is supposed to fix it with the 51,75 drivers.

"The 3DMark03 scores show the 51.75 Detonator drivers having a slightly faster score in the DX9 related tests. If you see the Pixel Shader 2.0 test, the score goes up about 25% and the Vertex Shader score is about 12% faster."
A 25% increase is....sort of....ok I guess. It's not as much as I hoped it would be. To late to buy a radeon now...This comment was edited on Sep 12, 18:36.
