Hello, I recently purchased an PNY Nvidia 560ti 1 GIG OC2 Graphics card primarily for Battlefield 3 and Skyrim. The day of the installation I was able to run Battlefield 3 on Ultra settings in 32 player servers. It was smooth as butter! Caspian Border was the first map I tested in a full 32 player server with this card. I was right in the thick of battles with Helicopters, tanks, and chaos swarming everywhere. I pulled of something along the lines of a 27 and 6 kill death ratio because it was running so well.
Well, the next day I load in and I no longer can run in Ultra. Anytime I look towards a battle or where there is a lot of activity I just lag out for a certain amount of time. I never crash though.
What in the heck happened? I've checked drivers and uninstalled/reinstalled them. Does anyone have any idea why I lost performance?
I did run a 3DsMark11 benchmark, could that possibly have stressed my GPU? I run my fan speeds at 65% when I play games.
My System Specs:
6 Gigs of 1066 DDR2 Memory
AMD Phenom X4 9850 Black Edition 2.6Ghz Quad-Core Processor
PNY Nvidia Geforce 560ti 1GIG OC2 Edition
800Watt Thermaltake Powersupply
Please note, I run the game in a 1280x1024 resolution. I don't have a flimsy flat screen monitor, I have kids and those little rascals kept touching the flat screens and breaking them.
Thanks for reading! Any advice is very much appreciated.
