    Cables tight? No broken or bent pins?

    Are you overclocking? If so back it off.

    maybe its b/c it doesn't fit perfectly into the slot...theres like a fan near my agp slot and it barely touches one of the chip things on my gfx card....ugh but i don't wanna move the fan. its so useful in the place that its at

    ?

    what kind of fan is it?

    generally the agp port is free of obstacles... if there is contact with the card by another device and it happens to have any metal contacts or is producing stress on your card you may well lose it eventually... so you basically have to ask yourself if the fan is worth more to you than the video card...

    naturally if moving the fan does not alleviate the problem there will be other avenues to try but for now try and get the fan moved and see if it helps any...

    I have a ATI Radeon 9600XT and for some reason I get the worst frame rates in UT2K4. When I said worst I mean for part of the game I was getting 12 fps. So needless to say it is going back to the store. Something is wrong. Maybe a bad card I dont know.

    do you have all pertinent ati software as well?

    make sure you have all related software to enable all the features of your card downloaded...

    updating the mothboard bios should stop the problem.

    Are you talking about the mother board bios? Have you got NTFS as your file system?
