I was getting 100-240 fps playing wow on a acer aspire M3910 with i7 870 intel quad core 4gb of ram and a gt320 nvidia video card settings of game were on low... now all of a sudden fps are 10-20, video drivers are upto date and in game settings still on low. I will be upgrading my video card to gtx 520 ti msi nvidia after the weekend but I am wondering what would cause such a drop in my fps everything else on my computer is fine. Am using windows 7 premium 64 bit. Any one have any thoughts on why this might be happening?

Thanks.

Strange.
Monitor your temps with hw monitor. Might be temps issue, might also be due to dust slowing the gpu, a clean up might be necessary.

Hi thanks for reply.

As it turns out for some reason the addons in game were slowing my fps down. When I first starting using these addons there was no drop in performance. However after about 2 weeks everything had slowed down. I deleted my wtf folder in wow and the addons and fps came right back up. Too bad because I enjoy using the addons. Wish there was away around this not sure if upgrading video card will allow for addons but will see.

Thanks.

the gt 320 is an alright card, but if u want to play in 1080p resolution with anti-aliasing and af 16x ull have to upgrade to something stronger, also to note ull have to upgrade ur current powersupply to power ur new graphic card, what kind of budget do u have for a graphic card + powersupply, with that information i can suggest a good choice, thanks

I am have my heart set on a gtx 560 ti by sparkle

http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/geforce-gtx-560-ti-...

read some reviews and was selected as one of best gtx 560 ti cards and I also found

one at a good price. I would like a 1000w power supply, I did a calculation on asus web site for power supply and it

recommended 850 but I want 1000 to be safe and because I may add a sound card and an additional cooling fan.

Would like to spend no more than $50 or $60 on a 1000w powersupply that will work with my sparkle card and computer not

sure if that is realistic price but am hoping to find a suitable on at that price range.

Below are computer specs.

Well, the psu is really important, it should be of a major brand, i would advise something between corsair, cooler master, xigmatec, antec..
These are trusted.
