Background Image Slowdown

Whenever I use background images Blender slows a lot. Im using a 16mb ati rage 128. Anyway to fix this? Also when I use things like the square select (b button) it screws up and goes slow :eek: I’ve noticed that it goes a little faster when the whole image is in view, rather then part of it being cut off.

Its the ATI most likely. When I had an ATI the only serious problem I ever had was background images made modelling unbearably slow.

This ATI issue has been discussed around the forums numerous times and the best fix seems to be ATIOGLXX.dll, which you can find some threads about if you search here.

None of those seem to work. I think my card is just too old and crap. :frowning:
