I seem to be having lag for the 1st time..

the game is lagging sometimes.. i hardly had that problem with the 7300 ..

is there some settings i should change on the new card?

if that is BF2 MP you are talking about, the lag could be serversided. anyway, you should be able to run BF2 on high with that card. What are your other pc-specs?

Does your PSU meet the requirments for it?

The 6800 is a very good card and should top about any game out right now. Maybe its your other specs that are making your game lag, ex. Ram, CPU, sound card, please post

you actually listened to dell tech support?! for shame! :) anyway, if you installed new video drivers, you shouldnt need to reinstall ANYTHING. you did get a stable version of the driver and not a beta version right?

Please, you don't need to restart. A game should adapt to a new card right away as long as you have proper drivers.
