i5 2500k & Gtx 280 poor performance? - Page 2

post #11 of 16
Cody I am using the same exact card with a E8400. The only time I lagged was during big battles. Are you having this problem with only 20 units around or so?

FIXED

I think it was the Physx auto select. I switched it to GPU and not I get 60fps max.

Its a stupid bug. You have to minimize it then restore to get your 3D clocks

is there a drawback with having a HT CPU, I have the 17 950 is that not good for gaming, I think its just to much horse power, it does not even use all the threads when I am playing crysis at max settings! lol

I am getting a Gtx570 soon.

Thanks for input though!

With 570 you can get about 100-120 fps on everything stock

ps. my old 5770 has more fps than yours...probably a setting error
