Hello i recently built a mid end gaming pc, although when im playing games it seems to feel like a low end. i dealt with the low fps and lag for awhile a now im sick of it this is why ive came here. Could you guys please suggest possible upgrades or reasons why my games my be running at low fps because im really confused.
Then it's prolly a server connection issue with WOW, especially if you are in crowded settings. That's just the way it is with these types of games, especially if you have slow internet connection. You should also run at most medium settings with your graphics card.
two ways you can do that depending on the mobo firmware installer options. You can do it while the system is running and then restart. Or you can load the right files onto a bootable flash drive and boot your system from it. Then you'll prolly need to change your bios settings after it might have been reset.
That system should be able to run WOW without any problems. I would suggest you check not only your FPS but your Network latency. While in WOW, mouse over the Game menu icon but dont click on it. Check the latency values that appear on the popup. If they are listed in red then that is the problem.
Also, try setting your graphics options in WOW to Good. This is the medium graphics setting.
High latency is usually caused by a problem with your internet connection. It can also cause jumpy game play and intermittent disconnects. Are you having any problems with disconnects? Which type of internet connection are you using and what speed is it, DSL, cable, Wireless(using a dish on your house)? Most DSL and Cable internet systems are plenty fast for WOW but Wireless often is not.
