All drivers are up to date. I upgraded the hard drive, power supply and video card. I know the mobo does not support 6g hard drive speed, but i figured it would operate at the 3g. I was wondering if my processor was too slow for the gfx card.
MMOs Played: RIFT and Star Wars The Old Republic
Please do not mention RAID or CrossFire.... I dont know what that is, and am not intrested. Thanks
Its hard drive is probably clogged, fragmented and slow.
Quality HDDs these days have a cache of 64mb, this only has a 16mb cache. This will also contribute to the speed issues.
Defrag the HDD and run a disk cleanup - otherwise purchace a better hard drive.
I currently have a 3.4ghz Q6600, and 2 GTX460s in SLI.
Unfortunatly my WD Caviar Black no longer works as a result I run games from my external. The loading times are horrendus...At least if I want to make a coffee I can do it while I wait for it to load.
MMO also depends on network speed, how are they connected to internet?
run speed test on both (like speakeasy) or some other, maybe problem in there
As I said before, two desktops. They are connected to the same internet (15mbps) and playing the same games. My graphics card is better than the 2nd pc. However, the other pc has a quad core processor, the pc having the problem only has duo core.
the 2nd desktop has better ram, and a better hdd, those will make the biggest difference in your loading times. Gpu has little to no effect on loading times for those games. if you want fast load times, get (#1) an SSD or other FAST drive, and (#2) a lot more ram for pc #1. 2gb is not enough to effectively play any game as it forces windows to use the virtual memory that is on the drive for almost everything, and a HDD is a ton slower than ram.
