Hey guys, ive been messing with this problem for a while. Whenever I play .avi movies (havent tried dvds) on any player, i get crappy playback. Whenever the screen scrolls like panning, the frames seem to studder and move in slow motion. Ive downloaded the lastest firmwire for my video card. Its a 6600gt and i have it set on highest quality setting. I tried turning it down, but it still doesnt help. Besides, my old ass mx400 plays movies fine with the same settings and playing movies shouldnt be so taxing on the card that it slows it down. the screen is a benq t903 lcd with dsub and i installed it so its not a plug and play monitor. it has a 16ms refresh rate and its resolution is set at 1024x768 instead of the native 1280x1024. it makes the font too small and when i change the dpi, it makes it look weird. anyway, also when i game it gets up to 90-93 Celcius and when i play need for speed 2 on medium settings with the same resolution as my screen, it freezes for like 1/2 a sec sometimes. i have no idea what else i can do to fix these issues. do i have a bunk card?? because people say theyre cards are around 70 when loaded, but evga says the card is good up to 120 C. the gaming doesnt bother me since it only happens on Need For Speed and Doom and everything else is fine. Except when the action becomes heavy it slows down a bit, which is probably normal for a mid to low level card trying to play it on medium settings.
