my new computer is doing my head in, had it about a week. high spec computer, but graphics looks like a low end card. i have nvidia 320mb 8800gts card, now i done my research and this card is suppose to be decent.
fifa 08 looks awful and has playstation 1 look about it, far cry is just plain awful, water and objects look terrible, chunks of beach turn black.
tried many games and they just look rather plain and awful, bought a div cable and hoped would sort problem. but no.
everythink in games just looks like a block and not very 3d, also seems very shiny objects and buildings.
anythink i can do to sort this? it's driving me nuts.
What make of 8800gts is it? are the motherboard chipset drivers up to date,and also the latest nvidia drivers for the 8800 (what motherboard and memory are you using?) What display resolution are you running. if you can give some of these specs might be able to help a bit more also what operating system you running with. also your comment about "only brought it a week ago surely don't need upgrading" do you mean the card its self or the pc if it's just the card presume you did install the drivers
You've paid quite a lot of money for a high spec pc, and it's Cougar's responsibility to get it working properly.
However, just in case it's something simple, it would be worth checking that they have connected the auxiliary power connector to the graphics card and that the card itself is properly seated in the slot (stuff comes loose in transit, and I recall you went for the 3 day build / delivery option, so they might have overlooked a connector in their haste)
