Hi all! I recently made a switch from Ti4600-8X to old 7800GS of mine after i saw that the shutdown bug was fixed. So I went and installed the unofficial 82.69 driver. Everything worked out well. After the first boot I had to run 3DMark 2001se for comparison. I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw the result. Only 16191 points. Keep in mind my old 4600 got 13113. How could there be so little difference? "Well that must be some sort of a bug", I thought myself. Then I proceeded to run Quake 1. In start menu the background ran flawlessly. I decided to crank up the resolution from 320 x 240 to 640 x 480. The difference in framerate was astonishing. Every resolution after the initial 320 x 200 turned Quake into slideshow. "Well Quake is an old game, that's the reason.", I thought. For the grand finale I fired up Morrowind. It was horrible. I only got 30 fps outside no matter what resolution I was using. I have tried switching to agp 4x but it made no difference whatsoever. Any help is appreciated.

With 32 MB I got 16171 points. So no difference. EDIT2: Disabled Shutdown Patcher but it made no difference.
