I have been getting some low frame rates and I was wondering if anyone had an idea as to why.
My build is this
Q6600 overclocked to 2.8 (Just the Asus auto 15% overclock)
Striker Extreme mobo latest 1305 bios
2 Asus 8800GT's in SLI
4GB Crucial Balastix 800 ram
2 seagate 360GB 16mb hard drives on raid 0
X-Fi extreme gamer sound card
When I play WoW, with SLI on or off, I only get like 45fps. If I change to windowed mode, I get 150fps with maxed setttings at 1680x1050. Also, as far as I can tell, Crysis and Obvilion don't seem to change much with SLI on. I have looked at all the settings and they seem to be correct. I thought it might be a bad video card so I swtiched them up but there was no change. Any ideas?
Did you connect the two cards via the bridge chip and plug power into the second card? I know its a dumb question, but some things do get overlooked when people are excited.
Try running GPU-Z and seeing what your cards are running at. Test them in 3dmark06 to guage what your performance is. Try only running 1 card and test again. Make sure all your drivers are up to date and installed properly (uninstalling old ones first).
Yes everything is connected. I tried running 3Dmark06 since it came with my computer. I believe one card got around 10k and with SLI i got 15k last night. I use cpu-z but i didnt know about the gpu-z. I will def try that when i get home.
Yea I did. As I said in the first post, SLI on or off. I have tried both ways and it seems to be about the same FPS. It's just weird when I switched it to windowed mode last night for an unrelated reason, I saw my FPS skyrocket. I just thought it was weird.
