Low FPS GTX 680 Tags: Graphics Cards Gtx Graphics Last response: March 1, 2013 11:35 AM in Graphics & Displays Share Clee1984 March 1, 2013 2:26:25 AM Hey Folks, I just upgraded mu GPU from a GTX 560 and I'm a little sad because there is no improvement. In fact there is actually a slight degradation. I am only getting about 28 average FPS in some of the games I play like Tera, Hawken, Planet Side 2 and Mech Warrior online. I'm running the latest drivers from Nvidia's site. I thought I had a halfway decent build but I'm not sure what is going on. Any help is appreciated. Here are my specs Windows: Windows 7 Ultimate Edition (64-bit) Service Pack 1 (Build 7601) Memory (RAM): 8192 MB CPU Info: AMD Athlon(tm) II X4 640 Processor CPU Speed: 3013.3 MHz Display Adapters: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 Monitors: 2x; Generic PnP Monitor Screen Resolution: 1920 X 1080 - 32 bit Motherboard *: ASUSTeK Computer INC.

It can't keep up with the card. m 0 l Azn Cracker a b U Graphics card March 1, 2013 2:43:45 AM Its your processor. You should have saved your money and not upgraded.
