My GTX770 slow? - Page 6

post #51 of 56
WoW is a horrible game to benchmark against. I recently went from a ati 4890 to a gtx 670 power edition. During gaming, my new video card doesn't load up completely, and neither does my CPU. Yet my fps still gets as low as 40 (and my graphics card is peaking at 55% load, CPU at 40%). WoW is just a horribly optimized game, on an ancient platform. Titans in SLI aren't going to help at all.

I first came here asking about upgrading my computer system, it then switched to "just" changing the videocard. I did also buy a new power supply, and I was told 550W would suffice. I've been having some system freezes lately, and I was wondering what was happening.

So I got a new videocard, new power supply and new video drivers. I underline it cuz I've been asking on nVidia forums about the freezes, and at first they said (well, some people) that the drivers could be the culprit. I was told to use older version drivers, which I did, and it's been almost 3 days without freezes, while before I would get 1-2 freezes a day. So maybe that's settle. But I was also told that my 550W power supply wasn't enough for the card and my overclocked cpu... so the lack of power would also freeze the system?

The "funny" thing about the freezes, was that the system would freeze while *nothing was happening*. Got 6 freezes during the nights, 2 during the day (as I was watching tv or doing something else), so it kinda doesn't make sense that the power supply wouldn't be enough, no power is being over used here. So maybe the drivers were the problem.

What do you think? smile.gif
Requoting myself here, as no one replied to that problem now. For almost 5 days straight, since switching to older drivers, I had NO freezes... I get up this morning, and it's frozen! So unless the drivers "rollback" isn't old enough, either the power supply or the videocard itself is just not working as intended.

What do I do?

If it freezes, it's really hard to say what the cause is. It could be anything. Last time I had problems, it was fixed by updating everything I could find, BIOS, network drivers, audio drivers, SSD firmware, etc. At the end I did not really have an idea of what exactly had been causing freezes.

If you argue that you never had problems in the past so it has to be the graphics card or PSU, it could be a part of software or hardware getting used by the new graphics card and its driver that was never touched before.

There's also cosmic rays flipping several bits in memory per year (no joke) which is one of the reasons servers use memory with error correction. See here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soft_error#Cosmic_rays_creating_energetic_neutrons_and_protons

It could theoretically be random bad luck and never happen again.

I don't know, but yeah, you gotta bump your threads like once every day. But, don't do it at the exact same time of day, especially if you notice that certain times of day are slower than others on here.

I might just reinstall Windows 7 from scratch (been almost 3 years since last install). The very first thing I noticed after reassembling the system in my new casing is that the Network icon (in the taskbar) was just freezing, for like 20 secs (usually upon boot you see the icon with either a red X or a animated circling icon, as it's seeking connection with the modem). Before I would just boot and get the "seeking icon" and get connected right away. What I did is check the system boot programs, cleaned it a bit, and now my reboots are back to "normal". Makes you wonder if it's not software related, an update or something that doesn't work well with my system.

Again, the system was STELLAR stable before I switched the psu and videocard and video drivers... mellowsmiley.gif

I just remembered that graphics card's have their own BIOS which can be updated. You might want to check if there's an update for that in the support/downloads section of the graphics card page on the manufacturer's website. It might be different to what was put on the graphics card in the factory and the update might be important.

EDIT: Nevermind... I just checked on Zotac's website and there's no update.
