My friend wants to play STO, he recently replaced his video card w/ an ASUS EAH4350 Silent video card.. Playing STO yields very bad tearing, polygon scrambling, and all sorts of wierdo graphical glitches that make the game unplayable even on the lowst graphic settings

We tried both the ASUS and ATI driver packages, latest versions, issue doesn't resolve..

Are there any known compatability issues with this card? From the min specs it should be a supported card, but there's something very wrong with it at least WRT STO..

He's running on Windows XP Pro and 4 GB of RAM in the system..

I don't have a DX Diag, but I can get one..

It's a low spec card - well below the recommended specs - and I wouldn't be surprised if it's below the minimum specs.

TBH it's a card designed for HTPC video playback - not really a gaming card.

Edit: - it's a shocker of a card for gaming. I hope the card he replaced was at least 5 years old and bottom of the range..... otherwise he's gone backwards

thanks very much for the information.. it was a steup up for him from a really old 256 meg card, though that card could just barely run the game

i'll let him know.. thanks again!
