Hi folks, since last few days i have been noticing a sudden drop in FPS in game i play wow mists of pandaria i have been doing 25 man raidings and been playing Battlegrounds with like 30-40 people i noticed that when i am fighting a boss in closed area i.e. a room .palace etc my fps is around 60 but when i do pvp in battleground in an open zone my fps drops to 32-38 i am really sad to see such a drop in FPS my system is just 3-4 moths old here is my setup
i5 3570 k @ 3.4 GHZ
Asus P8zv77 mobo
Corsair 8 gb ram
Asus nvidia gtx 660ti
650 watts Corsair PSU
One more thing is that my mobo is pci 3 and gc aswell but its showing pci 2 in nvidia control panel and please tell me what should i do to increase my FPS thank you.....
The ingame setup includes Multisampling which i currently have on 4x should i use the ingame settings or the GC settings?
Thank you all for the answers one more thing is that i have corsair vengance ram so if i overclock my cpu i would need a cooler and i am afraid the ram will interfere in installing the cooler any suggestions pls?
WoW is a VERY OLD game, it is more CPU-bound than GPU when alot of characters are on your screen. In at peak time in loaded server, being in the capical city with 100+ people lowers the FPS of my system (4ghz cpu, oc'ed 7970) to well-below 60. It is normal dont worry.
The most important part is that with a gtx660ti you should still have 60fps in a 10 or 25man raid.
If you are able to buy a simple watercooling solution such as the Corsair H60 or the new Thermaltake Kraken, your CPU will overclocking easily to 4.4Ghz or more. My flatmate has your CPU with the H60 cooler in a mATX case, his temps are never over 60c.
