  • Crappy FPS

    I play WOW, and noticed that when in areas of many people (30+) i get terrible FPS, 10-15fps to be exact, i ran 3dmark06 and have a score of 1794, that is really bad, because during the test, my FPS did not break 8FPS, i woulda thought my system could handle more than that, but i guess not =(

    GFX= ATI X1600Pro 512MB
    CPU= AMD 64bit 3000+ @ 1800mhz (oc to 2400 with heat not exceding 49*C
    did test with OC and non OC, and the OC was better, non-OC was 1711
    MB= ASUS A8V Deluxe
    RAM= 2x512

    every driver i can think of is up to date
    i am 90% sure i am gonna go buy new cpu and ram : amd 4600+ dual core and 2x1gb corsair 3200 400mhz LL but before that upgrade, what should i do?

    Hey Chair,

    Save your money and buy a new video card...Most if not all of your problems will go away. Simple as that. The ATI 1600 cards have 128 bit memory bus..Not good for gaming. Either step up to a higher rated ATI card or try an Nvidia card. nVidia just released their new 7900 and 7600 cards...both look to be very good.

    See here: http://www.bjorn3d.com/read.php?cID=891

    Good Luck.

        Chair that is the ring-bus memory controller, but the actual memory is a 128-bit memory interface which will bring down the throughput for the bandwith.

          Yes,

          What KillerTarget said...that video card is dragging your performance way down my friend. If your an ATI fan, they are supposed to be releasing a X1800GTO card sometime soon I believe..If not then go with what's available now.

              LOL!!! Welcome to the bleeding edge. Keep in mind if you are like me, this is your hobby. Hobbies cost money. You could be into cars, etc. What would that cost you?

                Or you could like, turn down your graphics settings. I play WoW absolutely fine with a Radeon 9600 and a Pentium 4 2.6GHz, and at 1280x1024 to boot.

                  Exactly what I said and a few other explitives when I found out that the ATI 550 TV chipset was released a month or two after I bought my TV tuner card. Still thinking about upgrading, maybe when I build a new computer.

                  With the upgrading I could suggest adding another gig of RAM, maybe not buy the 2 gig dual channel pack, but the 1 gig dual channel pack on newegg goes for about 100 shipped via fedex. Adding the additional RAM will have loading times for all games and programs become a lot shorter and it will allow you to have more programs running at the same time. Before I added my additional gig I had to quit almost all my programs running in the background or BF2 and some other games would take forever to load and sometimes would crash to the desktop. Now I can load BF2 and my normal background processes and not crash to take forever to load, it actually loads faster.
