GTX 260 OC Low framerate/generally low quality

Hi, All,


Here are my specs:


Intel i5 processor

GA-P55-USB3 mobo

GTX260 OC video.



I installed using [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]/[url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] with the DSDT they posted for my mobo model. I did not install any other extra kexts with the exception of a LAN fix and voodoohda.


I'm trying to figure out why the quality on my video card seems so poor. I used to run a hackintosh with an 8800GT and it ran phenominally better than this card. The things I notice are:


1. Max resolution is not listed in the screen resolutions, right now 1080p is selected instead of an actual resolution.

2. Cinebench shows 24fps opengl, not sure if that is good or bad.

3. Importantly, I very much notice a lot of choppiness anytime I watch a film, or OSX does anything animated.



I read somewhere to set the smbios to Mac 3,1, which I did, but to no effect. I installed and then eventually removed NVenabler because it didn't have any effect whatsoever.


GraphicsEnabler is set to yes in boot.plist


It was my understanding that in 10.6.5 Snow supported these cards. I mean it works, but really sloppily... any help would be greatly appreciated.
