26in monitor (New LCD) - Help

310 Views 3 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  ChickenInferno
Hello ,
My friend bought a new 26 inch monitor for his Alienware and ASUS laptop and when he hooks up either of his laptops to the monitor he experiences a great FPS drop in games , mainly world of warcraft as he does not play much of anything else other then Counter Strike. Why would it be doing this? The ASUS has a NVIDIA GeForce 9700M GT.

Any help would be appreciated , is there something he needs to do to make it work?

WoW is very poorly encoded and has bad framerates even on high end cards. Moving up from a laptop screen (ussually 1280x800 or at beast ussually only 1680x1050) to a 26" 1920x1200 monitor is a big difference and is much more demanding on the GPU.
He changed his Resolution to smething lower and it went up to 25 - 30 FPS , he used to receive 70 FPS. Should he just change wow rez or windows too?
change the windows resolution and it will automatically lower the resolution in WoW.
