I finally got tired of waiting for the price to drop and bought the ATI 9500 Pro. It benchmarks fine on madonion 3dmark2001 (latest version) at 10,950. Textures and detail look much better in most of the games I play. But... In MW4 Mercenaries when i pan left-right or up-down the display breaks up. Part of the picture keeps moving but part stays put, then the part that didn't pan jumps into place. It's not video lag, I've seen that before. Seems like the card can't move the texture data out fast enough. I even tried reducing the level of detail, and various settings, no joy. Problem is the same playing online or solo. I noticed a little of the same thing in the madonion dragothic test, but pretty minor. This did not happen with my GE2 or Ge3. It's making many maps unplayable and MW4 is my favorite game. I am not a happy camper. Running the catalyst 3.2 driver 126.96.36.19907 (2/28/03) from the ATI website. The problem was worse with the driver that came with the card a 6.13. Using the VIA Hyperion 4.46 (latest) agp drivers. Windows XP with all the patches except for the cursed 811493. I uninstalled the old nvidia drivers using add/programs, by hand out of the system32 directory and with regcleaner. Computer specs are in my sig. XP1900, 512 ram at 266 Mhz CL2.0, SBlive. Any suggestions? Anyone else get this problem?
