hi i recently got a new nvidia geforce 6200 256MB video card and installed it and got the newest drivers 81.89A. However on counter strike source i am gettin around 15-20 fps when there is more than 2 other players on the screen usually if im standing still and no ones abt it sits at 40-50.

i installed it without uninstallin my other card a TI 4600 because it wasnt on the device manager and i couldnt find it anywere i tryed reinstallin the drivers for the 6200 but didnt work and i tryed turning down all visual settings and resolution but didnt make a difference anyone got any ideas?

It's hard to imagine that your vid card isn't in Device Manager.

Take another look. Try running Drivercleaner, a highly recommended app that removes all traces of your old drivers, then reinstall your latest drivers.

You are looking under the "display adapters" node of device manager, right?

If appropriate, you may try disabling the on-board video via BIOS

You'll frequently see something like "Init display first" in BIOS . Make sure it initializes your AGP / PCIe / PCI express / PEG display first.

So whats your problem? Your getting worse framerates with a 6200GT as opposed to a TI4600 in CS? Ever occur to you that maybe a 4600 offers better performance than a 6200GT? Bigger numbers arent always better. Dont you just love these people who describe a situation and dont actually ask questions.

I think the OP is stating that the ti4600 wasnt there in device manager to remove, as he had already phyiscally removed the hardware from the pc to install the new card....?, but not sure?

Interesting about those frames...however OP, you are forgetting that of course the frame rates will take a fall when more moving objects are brought into play.

Isnt the 6200 like a hamstringed 6600, with turbo cache ram.....

My favourite card the Ti4600, loved that card.

Is that CS as in the original DX7/8 or something?, the Ti4600 will wipe the floor with the newer card in DX7
