    Unhappy why is my Radeon 9700 worse than GeForce 4 MX440

    my sister n i join a small room (fy_pk map) in CS

    it was a small room with 20 ppl +

    my sister got 40-60fps with GF4MX440, INtel P3, Hyundai 256MB SDRAM, Intel i815E chipset with Intel 10/100 pro LAN (onboard)

    while I got 3-18fps with Radeon 9700, AMD Athlon XP (aplomino), KT266A, Kingmax 512MB DDR with crap LAN cards (Internet Connection Sharing is on)

    why does that happen

    and my Internet Connection Sharing is on now but my sister aren't using my internet connection (PC off) but I still get 33-48fps in Day of Defeat (in large open area with 60-100+ ping)..

    is my Radeon 9700 that crap???

    but I remember getting real high marks for 3DMark 01, 03 (not multiplayer games maybe!?)

    keep confusing me

    wt should I swap? LAN card? ISP? Memory? Hardisk?
    my current config is below... using nVidia MCP LAN Card as internet and 3COM card as LAN to my sis com

    are you running opengl or direct3d or software rendering in game

    it should be opengl

    do you have drivers installed?

    color settings, resolution, quality, anti-aliasing, and aniostropic filtering settings have a huge impact on framerate performance...

    If you want to compare one card with another you should be running both on the "fast" settings and both at the same res/color settings.
