Really horrible FPS with new gfx card.

post #1 of 75
Thread Starter 
I play LOTRO alot now and before with my 8600gt 256mb i could play comfortubly on medium, but when i went into a part with alot of activaty i noticed lost fps quite alot, so i went out and bought a 8800gt 512mb, and its exactly the same, i have to play on meduim gfx just to get around 30fps and if theres loads of activaty i struggly and it fluctuated between 5fps and 20fps.

Thats not right is it, surely the card should handle more than that.. iv had my card in a friends pc and he said it was perfect on his, A few of my friends that have more or less the same setup most of them have 8600gt's they get plus 90fps..

Nothing is overclocked, but when i did tweek my cpu from 2.4 to 2.5ghz it didnt make any differance. i cant go any higher or the system freezes.

Iv the lastest mobo bios and all the lastest and upto date drivers for my system.

Im struggling here do you thing something is on its way out? is there anyway to test my mobo and cpu to see if its running right?

Iv run 3D mark 06 and i got a crappy 8404 score, a friend did his and got 10,508 score. His is the same size cpu same ammount of ram and a 8600gt his hdd is ide were as mine is sata.

The card is only a week old but the mobo and cpu is only about 6 months old.

Oh and my temps are fine cpu never goes over 50 and my gpu get to about 65c while playing LOTRO.

What do you guys suggest???

The only thing I can suggest is a clean driver install. Which drivers are you using for your 8800?

i would suggest upgrading you processor to at least a dual core. single core is a little behind the times. get an x2 or a phenom.

The reason your game slows down isn't GPU related
its your CPU, and it's naturally showing its age by slowing your system down during intensive sections with lots of AI
post #5 of 75
you need to upgrade to a dual core,if you bought a 8800gt you can get one.
the X2 5000+ BE is really nice for the price.

It's not the videocard.

Since the 5000+ BE isn't on Newegg... You could always do the 6000+ BE.

i'm guessing its a x2 4600+ and not a single core 4600? (did they even make such) so the cpu shoudln't matter alot)
post #9 of 75
4600+ is a dual core and the CPU is not the problem. There are many causes that can do this to the video card. To eliminate most of them is reinstall drivers and use driver cleaner PRO to remove that you have now. Also i would recommend to do a fresh install.
