I'm a long time lurker first time poster.
I have a relatively new system. But it doesn't perform as good as it should. I mainly use it for gaming. I figure I should be able to run all the new games at max settings. But some times I need to lower certain settings to maintain 60fps.
I'm relatively new to the PC gaming so maybe there is something I overlooked that would hamper my performance.
I would appreciate any help you guys could provide. Let me know if I left out any other important information
It might be your GPU. The graphics card only has a 192-bit memory bus compared to some other cards which means that it takes longer to send data (like textures in games and your playing with max textures). It MIGHT be it though, I'm not sure.
I was testing my performance with Borderlands 2. Without V-sync I am able to achieve ~ 140fps. However I have to keep my physx to low.
If I put physx to high the fps drops to between 30 - 45. It's frustrating because this was the graphic card for borderlands 2.
I would expect it to be able to use physx on high.
From what I'm reading here, my cpu and memory are both fine, but my graphic card is whats holding me back? Is this true?
Not looking for a new card. I got the 660ti about a month or two ago. I replaced the Radeon HD7770 that came with my system.
I gotta say, I'm a little disappointed that a this year graphic card can't be used at max settings, especially for a game that it was apparently designed for.
Well then there are a couple things you can do to help. Download GameBooster 3 (Just do a google search). What this does is it kills all of your background processes and speeds it all up a little. You can also look into over-clocking the 660 Ti, but be careful because if you don't do it right it can damage the card. Other than that, I can't think of a lot to do. Next time though browse the forums about you card and look at reviews before you buy, because for the same price you could have gotten the Radeon 7950 which is much better than the 660 Ti.
