My old graphic card was a GeForce 8600GT 256 mb. Now i got this new graphic card from my friends old computer, it's a Radeon X1600 pro 512 MB. I think it's better then my old one. I've installed all the latest drivers and such. But when i run GTA IV it lags like hell even if i have settings on the lowest graphics! On my old card i could run 1280x780 res and some lower settings. On this card i can barely run on 840x680 and everything else on low/off -.- why the heck is this happening? is this graphic card i have now even worse?
