It's the 5900 Ultra that you added. Seems to be a bit faster than the old card :-) . Anytime the framerate gets lower at higher resolutions it's because of the video card getting bogged down. Replace it with a much faster card and the framerate at higher resolutions is just as fast as the lower resolutions. That's the tremendous advantage of the "super cards" like the 5900 Ultra and the 9800 Pro - the high-resolution performance is really, really good.Doug
