I built a new pc and have had it for about a month or two. Games are stuttering on high and low settings. I swiped old drivers, reinstalled, didn't work. Swapped out my 6870 with a friends 6870 and fixed the problem first go around, restarted computer and problem began again. Reinstalled drivers again, didn't fix it. Could it be the processor or mobo?
AMD Phenom II X6 1100t
G.Skill Ripjaw Series 8GB DDR3 1333 (2x4GB)
Antec NEO ECO 620W
WD Caviar Black 1TB
Windows 7 64-Bit
by latency if you are playing online it could be your connection. i am not an avid gamer and by no means an expert but if your internet server ping rate is higher it can cause the game to stutter. And yes all my problems started and were only in game initially with WoW then DeusEx and CoD BlackOps.
AMD released new drivers today, did the same process, uninstall, install, and same thing. All games worked first go around, then when i restarted my pc, the problem began again. So it works fine when fresh drivers are installed, but when I restart, it goes back to the way it was. Any ideas?
