Video card updated just 15 minutes ago to gain hdmi and increase GPu proficiency.
Windows 7, 3gb ram, GPu listed below. I followed some online guides to even strip 7 down to strip all unnecessary features to make it run better.
This was my daily computer till about 5 days ago when I build a new i7 and it wasn't a speed demon, but it performed ok.
Before I updated the video card from the stock nvidia 6800, video playback on xbmc was unwatchable it was so choppy. The mouse would barely move when trying to watch video, etc. I was hoping the card would help with this but after installing, installing the nvidia current driver, I see no real change at all. Still unwatchable.
My dell is an xps400 from about 8 years ago.
Added this card.
I am unsure what route to take from here to fix it. Would the forum agree this card should perform? Any settings I can tweak to help performance?
I'll take any suggestions at this point as I am beyond frustrated.
