I just upgraded my graphics card, from a gtx260 to a n560gtx-ti twin frozr II 2GD5.
everything im reading is saying this card should be able to handle world of warcraft on ultra with ease but i am getting 10 - 20 fps in a 25 man raid.
was wondering if there is a way to fix this
my computer specs are
intel(R) core (TM)2 quad cpu Q6600 @ 2.4GHz
6 GB or ram
nvidia geforce gtx 560 ti
monitor 1680 x 1050 22 inch
not too good with computers so any help would be appreciated thanks
Your cpu is causing a bottleneck on the 560ti.
Overclocking your cpu will give your 560ti a good boost. If you dont have any experience in overclcocking ask a friend that knows how to, as its something that takes time to learn. You will aslo want to invest in a good cpu cooler for the overclocking.
For wow is hard not having issues with FPS. In my system i play ultra 1600x900 and flying around in most zones i get more than 100 fps (GPU usage 100%), while in a battleground or LFR 25man i get 20-40fps (GPU usage 40-60%). Even in ogrimmar, when its really populated i get 20fps near the bank(GPU usage 15-30%). So the problem is the game, not the hardware...
Overclocking it will help a lot, becasue wow likes faster frequencies. But you should understand and accept as many of us that WoW is another bad optimized game
Mostly becasue it still uses the same engine from 2004 when it was launch.
Core 2 Quad's are about the same as many Phenoms II's and some are even faster that them. If I got a Phenom II x4 945 @ 3.6Ghz and i am having the same issue with it, as many people i have met with good machines, even high end ones. It's for sure cpu bottleneck. Overcloking will help a bunch
