First time here, hope you can help.
Asus A8n SLI deluxe
AMD 64 400+ 2.4 gig
OCZ DDR400 2 matched pairs total 4 gigs
Rosewell 600 watt dual 12v rail 19 amps each.
Asus 24" wide screen 1900x1080
WD 130 gig raptor
HT/Omega sound card.
Win 7 Ult. 64
My main problem is that When I switched over to Win 7 my frame rate drop over half when I play WOW. I have tried several different drivers.Tweak force, Nivida Beta and current released, plus an older one that is in Win 7. Just cant get it to go up. I switch back to XP(on seperate drive) and its back to the high frame rate.
I am looking for several things. 1st what is causing the problem, Can I correct with what I have? If I need to replace parts, what should I replace and with what. I think my video card is ok. I use the system for WOW, Unreal Tourment 3, and the age of Empire series. Plus Digi Photography. I mainly play WOW. I like Nivida and AMD.
I have read it could be driver related or not enough CPU power and mem. WOW is a hog on the resources I am told.
Thanks in advance
Windows 7 will use a bit more of your computers recources, that being you could either blame it on win 7 or on your CPU + memory speed. Im sure if you upgraded to a dual or quad core and got ddr2 800 memory you would see a major performance increase.
How much would you be willing to spend for a new Mobo + CPU + RAM, everything else in your comp should be fine.
Prior to migrating to Windows 7 from Windows XP did you run the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor?
To determine if your current computer configuration will be compatible with Windows 7 please go to the following link: http://tinyurl.com/no4xb7
Another resource to verify compatibility is available at the Microsoft Windows 7 Compatibility Center located at the following link: http://bit.ly/1gW6Ns
Have you updated your graphics controller drivers as well and ensured that the drivers are indeed compatible with Windows 7?
yes I did, and it said it was good to go except a card reader and I have had problems with my sound blaster card.
It rated my CPU at 4.3 mem at 4.8,Video card at 6.8.
I have update the drivers, plus have tried different revs.
Thanks in advance for anymore information
