Blender gets slower and slower

I have a Radeon X1650 Series graphics card made by ATI… I read a bunch of stuff on blenders site about how bad ATI graphics cards are… well I have one is there ANYTHING I can do about fixing the problem??? blender starts out really fast, once I start modeling and adding lots of stuff to in interface it slows down a LOT… like so much so that I can’t really work with it anymore… any fixes??? I don’t really have the money to get a new graphics card, seeing that this one is only like 3 months old…

atr :RocknRoll:

how much exactly do you mean by “lots of stuff”, how many vertices?

You could try lowering the amount of undo steps un the user preferences.

try this one:

I looked at that and it didn’t work… keep in mind I am running vista…

Anyone?? i really need to get this fixed???

this is important. I have X1300 in an notebook and didn’t encountered any problems with unexplainable slowdowns. Do you have newest drivers?

I fixed it… I was the graphics card… I took the dll from a different graphics card and put it in the blender folder… works like lightning now…
