Stuttery, unplayble gameplay.

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Ever since installing my SSD and setting all my games on my secondary drive ALL my games are unplayable. I turn on the FPS counter on them and I have solid 30+ FPS at all times, but on my screen it's freezing constantly to the point where I sometimes can't move. Before installing my SSD I didn't have any problems with any games (BFBC2/WoW) if I stand still in BC2 or just run around for a bit it's okay but once I start shooting and things start exploding my screen freezes. In WoW if I'm questing alone or doing a small instance it's not a problem, but when I start a 25 man raid I can't even move or cast at times and it's really affecting my progression

I can't think of anything that would be doing this except maybe the PSU or the HDD itself.. what else could be causing this problem?

you could be right the added ssd might be putting the psu to the limits. Got a friend that would let you borrow a psu to test? also is your stuff overclocked?

also check a wattage calc and see what it suggests as the required wattage for your setup with and without the ssd.

Seeing that a typical SSD uses 5w or less (check your SSD specs to get the exact #), I don't think you are stressing the PSU.

Did you do a clean install of Windows when you installed your SSD, or did you remap from the old drive?

I have everything stock and I will look for another PSU just to check I guess.

I did a FULL clean install, but just moved my media/games onto my HDD. Maybe I should try a clean install of all my games also? I'm so lost as to why my performance would suddenly plummet just from installing a SSD.

EDIT: Just put all games on ABSOLUTE lowest settings and it says 60 FPS but on screen it's actually 1-2 FPS.

I may be way off here but i have had a similar experience recently.

I found that it was because i had reduced the page file on my ssd too much, a result of trying to cram too much stuff onto a tiny 60gb.

So even games running off my storage or steam drives were choppy.

I don't think the SSD is at fault here (+couldn't find another PSU to use check right now.) I ran kombustor on 1920x1200 Open GL 3 and got an average of

FPS: min=13 max=24 avg=23

It was not stuttering at any given time.. I'm suspecting maybe there's something wrong with the HDD and it could be reading files very slow. Is that a possibility?

I just checked and my page file is set to 4095MB so I don't think it's that..

I don't think I have, how would I go about doing that? I followed the SSD tweak guide but I don't remember seeing that included.

The drive was perfect, it ran all the same games I have now smooth with windows and all my media on it also. I formatted it after swapping.
