/Agree , What Brand/wattage/modelnumber PSU are you running? Also if you have a PSU with multiple 12V rails you might be overloading A rail (causing power flux) while leaving some unused X.x

Did you install the drivers from the CD? If so, delete them and go to the website and download them. Is your motherboard PCI Express 2.0 compatible? With everything on high, full options at 8x multi sampling, on 1680x1050. I get an average of 25-30 in highly populated areas and easily 80+ on isolated areas.

Here is my power supply which is deactivated on the website.

I have the 178 drivers not the new 180 drivers for the card.

Also it is mostly wow, I have wanted to get a 9950 Phenom, but that is just an option. Any more information?

Thanks for the replies so far.

His motherboard doesn't have a VGA port on it, if I looked up the correct one.

I'd try the latest drivers off Nvidia's website and see what happens.

Could someone please help me with this problem, there is no way that I am supposed to be getting these kinds of frames with the computer hardware that I have.

P.S. I have tried the 178.24 and 178.16 drivers for my card, as well as the new drivers. Which I found out that the newer drivers clocks the graphics card down when you play games or something.

Please someone reply, I know this is an old thread but I need help with this.

Insufficient power would cause crashes/lockups/reboots but not reduced performance.

Another member of this forum is having the same issues with his HD 4870, my guess is the problem is not linked to the video card.

Alright, but I just don't understand, do you think that calling blizzard would help or not? I have a 650W Antec Power supply with the 2X6pin PCI Express connectors, but there is no avail. Thanks for the reply though.
