  • Poor graphics and problems with games (Drivers??)

    I have just installled windows vista home premium x64 to my computer. I have installed mobo drivers,bios updated,Win updated etc. But the problem is in my Asus eah3870 top graphics card. I have installed newest ATI drivers and asus smartdoctor/gamer osd, and 3dmark06 gives 10021 points what indicates that theres lots of power to go with. But when i play ex: Need for speed- Most wanted, it shows really poor graphics. And when i try to play with better graphics, it is really slow and the backround flashes a lot. Flashing occours in lots of games that i play. Something is wrong i think... And GTA Iv works only medium gpahic settings... Any ideas?? How do you install drivers and apps to get most power out of eah3870 top (order of installation)??
