GW2 And My FPS - Page 3

post #21 of 33
Thread Starter 
Haha yeah I hate a lot of technical things about the game. But the game and scenery and all that are amazing. Like I hate how in the trading post the forward and back buttons are hyperlinks ripped off like ie6...

But I"m going to try that disable the HT and do it. I may just buy a i5 anyways, I originally had planned too. I'd guess there is 3rd party software that can read correct CPU usage since task manager isn't correct?

Also I assume I mine as well just get the 3570k over a 2500k since it's the newer product? I may tinker with OC or just let the system do a safe one. I have my current i3 passive cooled on a hyper 212 heatsink and it hits like 55c max. I would like to keep that as my computer only has like 3 fans maybe.

Edit: Fun fact. By looking up other people's FPS problems, I notice people with old hardware run just as good as the brand new good stuff. It wasn't uncommon to see that at all, which I thought was funny!

Hey you were right Task Manager doesn't know how to report readings correctly! Now I have to spend 230$ for guild wars. My goodness.

Even with 3570K @ 4.6Ghz i dip into 40s in some places. I would not be surprised Core i3 is holding you back.

Haha. So could anyone vogue for paying the extra 10$ for a 3570k? I heard it runs hotter wondering if I'll need to stick a fan back on the heatsink, but I'll check that out later by stressing and watching temps. And I heard they use less power which is kind of a big thing for me.

If you stick to P67 then just get the 2500K.

Is there a disadvantage with the p67 board or just hassle of BIOS patching?

It doesn't allow use of integrated graphics nor SSD caching. That pretty much sums it up. It also doesn't let you make use of quicksync.

Don't see why that would hold me back... I have a dedicated GPU and using my SSD as a hard drive not a cache. Don't know what quicksync is! Kind of wish they had a processor with no intergrated GPU so more room for the 4 cores and much better cooler, but then again I don't really know too much when it comes to that level of hardware haha. Just saw a sheet that showed how the ingrated graphics take up about half of the chip itself.

I was going to say that it was your cpu holding you back, but even with my cpu @4.5, i still get dips into the 30s with lots of people on screen.
