What the fuck am i doing wrong /v/?
>pic related, what i'm running
And it can't even max god damn WoW @ ultra settings 60fps, i have to drop to medium just to get consistent 60fps, on ultra it puts out around 20.
How do i get this shit game to run smooth?
This. i7 at at least 4.7ghz, 16GB of RAM minimum (though you should really have at least 32GB), and 2 4GB GTX 970s is like bare minimum for even toaster performance these days. You need to build a new rig, OP.
dude, that thing is old as fuck. it's shit m8. literally all you need is a new GPU. save up some dosh and get one. get a 970 or a cheap 770 for 200 if you can find it.
You're lucky that WoW's processing is mostly on the CPU since most people that play it don't even fucking have a dedicated GPU.
However you might as well be one of those people because your graphics card is ancient. Upgrade that shit you nigger
top kok. master race reporting in. #1 Gpu in the world reporting in. OP needs a new gpu it looks like. that 6900 is old m80
buddies are you kidding me? OP, you listened to this fucking board in the first place, and where'd that get you? you cant even fucking run WoW....
I'm an IT major at college, I know what I'm fucking talking about. I MADE a game. what did these braindead retards do?
>trying this hard to shit post
go back to redurp kid
When WoD hit something happend to wow performance. Overnight i went from like a stable 80 to 100 frames to subpar 20-40 with the same graphics settings. Hell i can max out witcher 2 with ubersampling on and maintain a solid 50 fps
this pathetic attempt at shit posting. kek.
post your shitter toaster m8. I'll get another 980 when I need one, not needed anytime soon.
I can run the heavier games I've tryed to play at atleast 30-45 fps on ultra 1080p, only thing I can't run is
ubisofts newer games and COD:AW
niger, you're dumb. like, really dumb. but cool shit posting though
>it's a 2004 game
Exactly, it's a modified WC3 engine rendering models and textures from 2014. And it does a pretty good job of it without shitting itself, all things considered. Your GPU is shit though.
>OP asks to play wow better
>you idiots say he need an i7 to run it better
niger wtf is wrong with you? lol austistic much? look at his God damn gpu. b8 thread. anyway. nigga out
dude, you have no idea wtf you're talking about obviously. A fucking dual core cpu can run WoW. it's his 6900 that's bottlenecking. if you argue with that, you're 100% wrong. so yeah, that's all he needs. continue to shit up the board though
Currently unemployed will get more internal hdd's when I actually have some money.
Help me /v/, I don't want expensive 970 card, I'm not even a graphics whore who needs ultra settings, I just need to play all 2015 games with silky smooth movements.
I have 4 GB of physical RAM actually, looks like I installed it like a pleb. I figure I need 8 GB at the least and obviously a better video card but I don't have many shekels!!
It's too early to upgrade entirely, I want to wait 1 more year but I need new video games. Feed me.
Got my tax returns and about to buy this on monday.
Ill change the PSU to my old corsais 750w and put the new in this one that I will sell.
GTA V, come at me!!
to prove two fractions are equivalent, you have to show that there exists some a/a that you can multiply by one fraction to get to the next. 0/0 times what will give yu 10/10?
Full upgrade is your best option, man. You could drop in 8GB of ram and a 770, but your CPU is going to end up being a bottleneck. An i5 4670k is like $200, you don't need an expensive motherboard to go with it. For like $500 - $600 you could build yourself a nice new system. Just save some money. But don't bother upgrading what you have now, you'll just be throwing money away that you could be saving towards a full new build.
But what kind of temps do you get. Heat is the enemy, after all. My 4670k running at 4.3ghz never gets above 50C, even at 100% load on all 4 cores. Though I do have a Corsair h105 keeping the thing nice and cool.
an i3 with hyperthreading does as goodas your cpu m8. sorry, but amd is for cheap fags. it's cheap/10
Anon, just giving some constructive criticism here as I don't want to read all the comments.
First of all, WoW is strangely shit performance wise. I've had low FPS in that for the longest time.
Your hard drive may be a bottleneck, try moving WoW to your SSD.
The only other problems I see is that your RAM is a little slow and that your GPU is a little out dated.
Just because a game is old doesn't mean it is properly optimized, remember that.
Both die and socket temps never go over 60°C. I believe it only starts throttling at around 75°C, so my CPU is pretty safe. I'm using the Hyper 212X.
cough cough Intel Compiler.
Do I need to change the boot method to normal? It's currently on selective mode.
They are put next to each other, slots are the same color. It felt like they clicked into the slots last time I checked.
So I need a new CPU as well alongside more GB and a video card? Then I might just have to full upgrade next year instead and work on my backlog in the mean time.
Your GPU is outdated and WoW is optimized like a piece of swiss cheese at this point with all the clutter the engine has. If you even want constant 60 fps at 1080p in WoW you can't even run it on ultra on really good comps. Just run it on fair/low.
1600mhz actually. I done fucked up somewhere.
Tell me /v/, would a dedicated GPU really improve my system's performance that much? I didn't build this as a gaming rig in the first place, but it would be a nice plus if it could run some modern games decently.
If that's true then I've had this RAM running at 1333mhz instead of 1600mhz for 6 whole years now.
Okay dude before you get even gayer ima help you out.
WoW almost never runs good on all max regardlessof the machine.
Its a game that can run on everything at 60fps at some playable settings. Yet is shit when it comes to maxing it.
Yeah, the store that I made that list in didn't have any Gigabyte, I'll have to correct it.
Made a list in a internet store and asked for a deal in a local store.
SUPPORT LOCAL BUSINESSES!
Guessing it doesn't work with pcpartpicker or?
Also im sure they'll order one for you
There aren't really local businesses for PCs in Alabama. Just repair shops for the computer illiterates
>inb4 Alabama literacy jokes
probably because you run everything with your sli configuration while most games don't have proper crossfire/sli support.
this is why single good card > dual cards.
help me out /v/
i bought to my current system a Asus VG248QE and replaced it with my old Samsung.
The quality of the screen seems pretty bad and i thought that it may lay on my GPU but the 750TI should handle it or (i get next week a 970GTX) ? i looked also for drivers or something like that but nothing, i just got the cd with old nvidia drivers.
And does someone here has a idea how i can set 144hz without my screen losing resolution?
Graphics cards are purely for playing games and watching high res video. Make sure your power supply can handle whatever graphics card you pick up. The page you buy it from should tell you the optimal power supply wattage needed.
970gtx is a beast of a card made for playing games maxed out at 1080p+. It would be massive overkill if you have smaller res monitor.
>And does someone here has a idea how i can set 144hz without my screen losing resolution?
Monitors have max hz they can run at, you can increase it past what it's meant for but it will kill the monitor much faster. Just stick with what it defaults to.
>The quality of the screen seems pretty bad
that's because it's a TN panel. do your research next time. you can check for the most 750 TI drivers here.
if you really don't like the quality of the monitor i'm sure there's a guide out there with tips on what settings will give you better picture quality.
I use this rig for audio production, plus it's great for emulating and is decently future-proofed in terms of games.
I'm starting to think I goofed by buying an i5 instead of an i7. I've become more interested lately in video production, 3D modeling and making music, all of which an i7 is great for. I've only been casually looking into them but if they become a legit interest of mine eventually I'm going to feel like a dumbass.
My monitor should handle 120 - 144 Hz, all i can think of it's the GPU or the reason that i use a DVI cable
I can check the drivers but yea.. just a bit dissapointed.
