GTX560ti poor performance

Recently bought the GTX560ti video card when my Gt9800 finally died. Installed new card and I am getting much worse performance than the pervious card. I mostly play WoW and I am getting 12-20 fps in org sitting still, and 2 fps in raids. Lower all the settings to poor, as well as changing advance settings didnt make a difference. Disabling all addons while on poor settings got me to 30 fps, but why play at that lvl.

I am not expecting great leaps in performance, but not a downgrade. And blizz and Asus tech support have been useless so far.

Wipe all the nvidia drivers out with Driversweeper and install the latest nvidia drivers again. Do you have issues with other games?

I had uninstalled the old drivers, but ran driver sweeper only on the nvidia display drivers. Reinstalled new drivers. I am getting around 20fps in org on mostly good settings. Still alot worse than old card.

I saw a post here where a guy was having the same issues, with the same vid cards. Histurned out to be power supply. I discounted that because my power supply was bigger than his. Now i cant find the post again.

Did you plug two 6-Pin power cables into the back of the video card?

It's quite common for people to forget this.

Ran a benchmark test, not sure if this info helps. Also note, I am running a 1920x1080 monitor (couldnt select that for the test).

Graphics score seems normal to me. I've got a GTX 560 Ti as well but I overclocked the core to 950 MHz and I'm getting 5051 graphics score. The physics score is low, however, and that is pointing to your CPU. As a World of Wacraft player myself, I can say that it is a very CPU intensive game, and with my 2500k @ 4.3 GHz I do not get more than 40 fps in middle of Orgrimmar at crowded times, or more than 30 - 35 fps in 25 man raids.

What performance are you getting in more GPU oriented games? Like some shooters?
December 4, 2011 2:33:43 AM

I dont play enough of other games to have that answer. But my wifes computer with a tricore, gt9800, and 4 gig ram is getting nearly 50-60 in org as I type this. On fair with some good settings. Did play Batman Arkham City today, it was decent in play style. Some hiccups and bog downs, but I have never played it on a good machine for reference.

I am not 100% sure of why your frames are lower then your old card. One thing i do know is that if your possessor is running at 2.33ghz then your bottle necking your 560ti right there as well. the Q8200 is a good possessor and can be overclocked to stop the bottle necking of your 560 ti. All though this is not the direct topic of the thread i thought id throw in my 2 sense.As for the super low fps the only other thing other then Drivers i can think of is possibly your PSU not giving enough power to the gfx card itself limiting its performance! If your psu doesn't have the proper watts or 12v rail amperage then you can have serious performance loss or even damage to the video card.

Try inserting the new GTX 560 ti to your wifes computer, and see if there're any improvements there.

Thanks for all the help guys, but when I went in to remove the new card and try it in my wife's computer, I found the cpu fan loose. Reinstalled the cpu fan, and performance seems better. I am now getting 35-45 fps in Org on mostly high settings. Still dropping way down in 25 mans. I may try overclocking after I do alot of research on the topic.

Hey glad you solved it. WoW is indeed a very CPU intensive game. Try lowering shadows, that might help.
