I just finished building my new gaming rig, which consists of:
Intel i5 3570k quad core processor @ 3.40GHz
Nvidia GeForce GTX 680
However, with this new rig (which I thought would probably be able to pretty much destroy any game on ultra), I am having strange performance issues (aka lower than expected framerate), in World of Warcraft, DOTA2, The Witcher 2, Diablo 3, amongst other games. I have reinstalled drivers, and made sure GPU fan is high enough so it isn't overheating. Anyone please have any ideas why I could be having performance problems like this? Thanks in advance.
Also. check your CPU temps and heatsink. If there is a problem there, your cpu could be throttling. The card should be crushing those titles. Though the witcher can tax the card if you have ubersampling turned on.
The CPU cores were all stable around 50 degrees, so I dont think that could be the problem. I may try and install watercooling in the future then OC my CPU, although don't know how responsible the CPU is. As for when I was playing DOTA, it seemed better with the adaptive vsync, although I dont know how much better; I'll try some other games.
