Re: Graphics Card Not At Full Capacity!
CoH is quite cpu dependent, which cpu do you have? (as celegorm has stated it could be bottlenecking your gpu) how much memory also? I've had it using 1.6GHz of memory under Vista (haven't checked under XP lately)
Lets get real here, the 8600 range is a budget card that is known to have hardware faults, there were reports that all the 84xx to 86xx cards had faulty cores, maybe yours is one of them.
All I can suggest is to try a beta driver to see if it helps.
EDIT: Which m/board also and are all the m/board drivers up to date?
