Ok so heres the deal, i have a pretty old computer and i went to best buy to buy a brand new PNY nVidia 9800 GT XLR8. After i replaced my old 6600 with the new one i launched garrys mod and i still had 40 fps. W T F. Sorry im really pissed off cause i taught id go below 100 fps with it… I seriously need help!
Is there any place where i can find the best nVidia control panel setting for gmod?
I tryed to tune the nvidia setting in the control panel, i gained a big 2 fps… I tryed overclocking it and nothing has changed, i even get 39 fps in css! WTF :(.
1.5 gb DDR Ram.
CPU : Intel Celeron D 2.66 GHZ
Motherboard : Asus P5GL-MX
Video card : PNY GeForce 9800 GT XLR8 > 1024 mb ddr3.
PLEASE, HELP ME!!! i wanna play garry’s mod! It’s my favorite game!
40fps seems perfectly acceptable to me. I suppose I would have expected something more given your computer specs.
I’m thinking if you’re getting the same performance with different graphics cards, then having poor graphical power wasn’t the problem. My video card is worse than that and typically I’ll get 60-70 on GMod, more on other Source games.
Thing is, your CPU and RAM both could use a bit of a boost but neither are bad that it’s really time to upgrade.
Why are you so unhappy with 40, though? I’d be fine with that.
Ok thanks for the informations. Im unhappy with that because when im at 39~40 fps and i spawn for example a phx object, it decreases to 20 fps, then when i spawn another, it goes to 14. It always decrease! Im so mad, i bought this card 179$ For NOTHING…
Not so much as outdated, rather more like the Pentium D (2 Pent 4’s on 1 chip) era (2006 to 07/08 I think) - Doesn’t seem like much but in processor world that’s an eon. Not to mention DDR1 RAM? late 06 when they phased out for DDR2, and that’s slowly starting to age.

If you can, try looking at the back of your pc and check for a fan at the top of the case, it is located near by the slot where you plug in your computer. Anyways, im sure its gonna fit and work like a charm in there cause the card needs 2gb of ram and 400 watts power outlet and my computer has 1.5 and 350 watts of outlet… And it still works! So go ahead and buy it :).
