So I've bean using Windows 7 for a few months now. I decided to run FRAPS to see what kind of frame rate I was ACTUALLY getting. I was disappointed with the results (could have swear they use to be higher), so I ran those same benches on the old Vista install. They where about twice what I was getting on Windows 7. I have all the right drivers, and I have AVG anti virus.
I haven't bean keeping the Vista install up to date, but it seems to be doing better. I don't understand. I've tried updating drivers and everything else that updates... Can't figure this out. If it is useful, I could post the DxDiag.txt specs.
I don't think the fact that it is the 3rd partition on my 1TB hdd should matter, does it?
Core 2 Duo 8400
Nvidia9400 Chipset Gigabyte Motherboard
EVGA 9800 GTX+
6gb of ram (1 gb dedicated to the 9400 on board graphics card)
1TB hdd, Windows 7 install starts on a partition that starts in the last 1/4 of the HDD. Vista is in the first thing on the HDD.
