Windows 7: Team Fortress 2

Hello again, Seven Forums.

This time, TF2 (And L4D) seem to be getting very low FPS, 12ish when there's a lot of action going on. No settings change seems to affect it, and it doesn't appear to be the network. I was thinking driver issues, but I could be wrong.

Specs are in the profile.

Thanks for any help you can give me!

Make sure you have vsync off and AA and AF set to low values.

Drivers?

I find it kind of funny that everyone with a Nvidia card said that the game plays great. But everyone with an ATI card says it is choppy, including myself. That is because ATI's 7 drivers are not totally unbugged yet. Or at least this is the conclusion I have com up with, I have use both my ATI x1650 pro which works fine with vista and TF2 and my friends Nvidia card...not sure of the model. But they are similar cards. With the ATI it was sort of choppy. With the Nvidia card it was clear and better than XP or Vista. So the only thing I could think of is the ATI drivers aren't working the greatest yet.

Im running an ATi card and I play alot of TF2, I have no problems at all. All settings maxed out, rarely go below 50fps. Look at My System Specs if you want hardware details.

Just got done running a benchmark and my score was really low. I've never really understood any of the numbers and such and was wondering if someone could maybe point out something that may be wrong that im doing.

Edit: Forgot the important figures:
FPS:9.1
Scores:229


Binary:Windows 32bit Visual C++ 1500 Release Oct 22 2009
Operating system:Windows 7 (build 7600) 64bit
CPU model:Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU 920 @ 2.67GHz
CPU flags:2653MHz MMX SSE SSE2 SSE3 SSSE3 SSE41 SSE42 HTT
GPU model:NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260 8.16.11.9107 896Mb
Settings

Render:direct3d11
Mode:1024x768 windowed
Shaders:high
Textures:high
Filter:trilinear
Anisotropy:4x
Occlusion:enabled
Refraction:enabled
Volumetric:enabled

I flashed my bios with the latest, I've updated my video drivers with the latest. and I've tried to disable that Physx thing and it still runs pretty bad. I also have frozen about 5 times while trying to test stuff out in TF2 (3 times on default settings)

Try lowering your Anisotropy to x2 or even 0 for that matter.
Can you post up all your Graphic settings for TF2?

I also seem to be having issues with Team Fortress 2 under Windows 7. I can run the game just fine, until I connect to a server. After is sends all the information and whatnot, when it shows the the server's home page or whatever, the game will soon freeze up, and I'll have to shut it down using task manager. I've tried a lot of things people have said, and they all either confuse me or don't work. Here's some of my specs:

Windows 7 (32-bit Home Premium)
2 GB RAM
NVIDIA GeForce 8400 GS (PCI)
Intel Pentium 4 2.66 GHz

If there's any other specs you guys need to help me, I'll be happy to give them to you.

What graphic setting are you running in TF2??

" I can run the game just fine, until I connect to a server." This would indicate you can run the game just fine...

Your system seems to be kind of low spec for the game, its quite CPU and GPU intensive, a 2.6GHz Pentium 4 would struggle I would imagine..

I'm not sure. I'll check later.

I've played the game on an even worse CPU just fine, so I don't think that's the issue.

Team Fortress 2 Low Texture Bug?
Hi, I've been playing some Team Fortress 2 recently, and it's a great game. However after joining a server yesterday, all of the graphics are low quality. I have checked the settings and they say that everything is on max graphics as usual. Screenshots (You may have to view larger image to see):
