Hi guys,
After some search on internet I found similar systems like mine running on 150-200 FPS normal zones , 60-100 Shattrah , but I didnt had this even before (had like 20-40 Shatt, 40-120 SW)
I`d like some settings for my system between Nvidia Control Panel and Wow settings (like Antialising, V-sync, Antisoptric, Pre-rendering, etc) to improve FPS and to keep high quality game.

CPU: Q6600 quad (Arctic Cooling Pro 7 sink blowing in back to fan-out), temp CPU ~30, in-game 40
RAM: 2 x 2 GB Corsair DD2 800
MB: ASUS P5K
PSU: 750 W
VCARD: 8800GT ASUS
OS: Win VIsta 32 bit
NVidia driver: 178.24
CASE: SopranoDX, airflow made (front in, back out)

I`s like also some advices and corect voltages for system, and some programs to set/test this settings.

THanks in advance.

If you're not lagging don't worry about it. Since you have 4x the computer I do I don't see how you could lag. My ati 128mb 9500 pro ran the game on medium setting.

When I my 6800gt was working it ran the game fully maxed out. Ya sometimes it only read between 20-40, but it never lagged *video card lag just for clarification* in the least bit. No matter were I went.

You don't mention your resolution. I have an 8800GT on one of my PC's that runs just like yours but I run it at 1680,1050 res. If you want to see really high FPS you may just be running a higher resolution then what you are comparing it to. Also Nvidia cards don't do as well when running multiple monitors so if you have dual monitors you may see an increase if you shut down your secondary before you start the game. :whistle:

Wow complaining about framerates when you can't see any lag... interesting. You want to boost framerates and stability, DON'T USE NVIDIA CONTROL PANEL OPTIONS. For gods sake so many people do and then wonder why their games run like crap. Nvidia control panel will force options that will make games unstable and unless you know what to do and not to do for each game you WILL make a mistake. Nvidia 3D options are under "Advanced" user control for a reason. I learned the hard way, just don't use them its not worth it.

Edit: unless you need to disable SLI for a game that is.

U said to not use Nvidia CP, you mean by that to let by default 3D appliocation controlled?

I played on default settings and nothing change, but other games are working better, only WoW is the problem.

Yes, keep everything application controlled if you can. WoW FPS is also dependent on your internet connection. The computer can not process things that are not there for them to process. However, this should only make a very small difference to be honest.

ok, I undertsand .. all default, but how other people have 100-200 FPS?

PS: My latency is 40-100ms green all the time, I play on blizzard servers not any private

You need to overclock your CPU, it is bottlenecking your system a little.
October 17, 2008 1:57:29 AM

Maybe, or else it could be you're missing a driver (it happens).

Check if you've got the latest drivers for the GPU, mobo, etc.
October 17, 2008 2:40:04 AM

Driver wise you should be fine because, believe it or not, you are getting perfectly fine performance...
October 17, 2008 2:52:01 AM

It's your CPU. A single 7800 GT is enough to max wow at 1600x1200, 8xAF 4xAA.

Going from a 7800 GT to 8800 GT made little difference in my performance, but overclocking my E6750 from 2.66 ghz to 3.4 made a world of difference. Your Q6600 at stock is only 2.4 ghz, which isn't very fast. Turn it up to 3.0 ghz and you should see significant gains.

Unless you have it hooked up to a HD TV that can do 120+hz, then there no point in pushing your fps higher cuz you LCD can only display 60fps anyway. But really at this point your prolly cpu locked (yes i know you have a kick ass cpu but still..) or the wow game engine is just not going to go any faster.
October 17, 2008 3:16:34 AM

I disabled Vertical Sync to get more than 60 FPS due LCD refresh rate.
What should be the pre-rendered frames ? b defaut is 3, should be 0 or 8 for better improvement?
October 17, 2008 3:19:21 AM

I`ll take a look arround fro OC the CPU to 3Ghz but before to do that and I`d like to ask if my PSU is enaugh for my system to OC?

I have 2 HDD SATA2 260 and 500 Gb. I dont know how much W are taking but I saw on 8800 GT box is required 400 W only for video.
October 17, 2008 3:25:48 AM

Lol, that's 400w for an entire system with your video card.

I don't play WoW now. But I used to. My system specs are below.

I played WoW with my 8800GTS (G92) and usually had 60-75FPS I think. Really though, once you get a ways above 30FPS you can't actually see the difference anyways.

It's hard to imagine even a stock Q6600 @ 2.4Ghz is a bottle neck with regards to WoW.....
October 17, 2008 5:10:22 AM

Q6600 is a bottleneck because wow is more sensitive to clock speed, rather than the number of cores =)
