I have a quick question: I have a Nvidia GTX 570 with a pretty hardcore gaming system.
I have an intel i7 sandy bridge over clocked to 4.2 ghz and currently have 16 gb of ram with a 2tb hard drive. When I first bought this graphics card I was able to run world of warcraft on ultra settings with no problems. Here recently I've noticed that my frame rate has dropped down pretty significantly down to roughly 40 fps. The only way I can get my frame rate back up is by using a program called "Game Booster" or I have to lower my "Texture Detail" down to Bilinear in order to greatly improve my FPS.
So when I first bought my graphics card everything was running good and smooth and now it seems like the quality is on a downward spiral to hell. Battlefield 3 seems to run pretty smoothly at 50fps on ultra which is expected.
I have 8 fans built inside of my computer and my graphics card only gets up to about 62c at peak performance. I have checked my drivers and everything is up to date. I've also tried disabling v-sync both in game and in the nvidia control panel. However that didn't seem to do anything. The only thing that seems to be improving the performance right now is the game booster shutting down processes in the background and also the texture detail setting.
Any feedback? My system is pretty high end and now all of a sudden the graphics seems to be suffering and i'm confused as to why....
