Low FPS in-game

Xfx ati / Hd 4850 1 gb gddr3

Specs: Windows Vista
I had a XFX Geforce 9800 Black Edition GTX+ 512 mb video card, and for some reason when running a half life 2 mod, Fortress Forever(FF), the FPS would dip as low as 40 during certain points playing. So I went and got the XFX ATI Radeon 4850 thinking it was the video card. With a AMD Dualcore 64 X2 6000+ and 4gb of RAM I would imagine this system could run anything. I have all the drivers updated, tweaked all the options in FF, and had a few people look at it. Neither card will pick up the monitor and it just says Generice Non PNP monitor on ATI Radeon HD 4850. The monitor is a LG Flatron W2452T. I tried getting rid of Vista and getting Win 7 but the problems were still there. Any ideas?

I don't understand what the problem is, other than you didn't install the monitor driver.

Do you think that would affect FPS? The problem I have is that I know this card isnt running to its full potential or anyone close for that matter.

if i was a betting man, i'd say it's the mod itself. do you get lower-than-usual FPS in any other game, or just the custom built 3rd party software?

I would normally think that too, but even in an old game like Team Fortress Classic, which is a very old game, the FPS still drops down to like 80. No chance it should go that low as I got 100 FPS back in the day with a 64 card.

The bigger the monitor & the higher the resolution, the more powerful the card has to be to push out decent frame rates. You have a 24" LCD...what are resolution are you running? Game setting on medium, high, very high? Do you have the eye candy (AA, AF) turned on?

I run 1920 because its the recommended for my monitor. AA and AF are off. Both on card and game. Run on widescreen 16:10. Even if I go to 4:3 at 1024 the FPS are really low still. Most other settings flicker really bad when I change the resolution.
