WoW and Vista x64

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Ok, for about the last few weeks here I've been scratching my head as to why i'm having issues in WoW while using Vista x64.

Im running 4GB of ram, and a 8800GT, my CPU is overclocked to 3.5GHZ. I tend not to run SLI in wow because I like having 2 monitors that i can use. Ok well the issue im having is not so much frame rate issues, its this render lag.

My latency in game is 160 ms, im pinging at 60 FPS out of Shat, and I'm seeing this choppy animations on everything. I have been playing WoW in compatibility mode with XP SP2 which seemed to help a lot with my frame rate issue. But im still getting this annoying render lag. Oh a whim i wanted to see how it would play in XP x64 so I installed that, and i get no render lag at all, and in addition, my fps seems to be a lot higher.

Two possibilities that i can think of are, my bios is not updated to P04 ( didnt update it, because it only mentions additional processor support), and possible the current version of forceware drivers I'm using (169.25).

Im really at my whits end, I've done everything i can think of to resolve this and yet it still persists. If anyone has ideas please let me know, because I'd like to keep Vista for DX10 games

W.T.F folder - delete config.*** (while WoW is closed)

If that doesn't help, delete Cache folder.

If that doesn't help either... rename Interface to something else and give it a shot. If it works well, you'll have to enable your addons one by one until you find the problematic one.

I did that, seems to help a bit. Also updated to 175.16

EDIT: It seems the config.*** has fixed it, I would never thought to do that so thanks
