    Default Sloppy performance... again...

    So... I recently upgraded components in my PC. I currently have

    AMD Phenom 9850 X4 @ 2.5 GHZ
    Sapphire ATI Radeon 4850 HD @ 1 Gb
    2 x 1 Gb OCZ gold RAM
    160 Gb Western Digital HDD
    ASUS M3A, AMD 770, AM2/ AM2+, 4xDual channel DDR2 1066, 1xPCIEXP16x, 1xPCIEXP1x, 8CH, Gigabit LAN, SATAII, ATA133, 5200MTs, ATX Motherboard.

    Now... I upgraded from a 4200 dual core and a 8500 GT. All fine and dandy installed everything fresh , when I enter a game and just stay in a certain place without moving an inch at the same graphic details i get the same FPS average as I used too with my dual core and 8500 GT which is really .

    Drivers for GFX are new , downloaded with the ATI Catalyst Control Center today... can someone explain what I did wrong? Altho imho I did everything by the book.

    i dont know much about ATI video cards but im pretty sure WoW doesnt take advantage of the multi core on processors, so you won't get much of a jump in performace from that.

    yeah WoW is only 2 core application but I was counting that the jump from 8500GT to 4850HD would boost my FPS by at least 20-30 frames.

    Have you run 3Dmark at all? Might give you a feel for the differences outside of that game

    Edit : and what about the settings are you all on high? I've seen comments that framerate on the higher end cards is not that much higher at low res too

    I think my 8800gt gave me 14k+ and my 9800gtx 17k+ but both were max overclock and cpu at 3.6 and 3.88 respectively

    The only games I've had on this computer recently were Olympic

    40fps on Crysis? That's not so bad is it?

    its good imho but still doesn't explain the very small upgrade in WoW. Since on my old PC i barely ran Crysis everything min @ 20 fps. This is very confusing tbph.

    well honestly each game is different.....im pretty sure on crysis i could run it pretty well but on everquest 2 i cant get more than 15FPS while raiding, just depends on the game and what resources it uses.

    WoW is an old game and not very demanding.......just about any card should chew through WoW. So if there isn't a big jump in your framerates in WoW, then it might be capped. Many games have an fps limit (ie-60 fps, for example) that will not go higher regardless of your graphics horsepower. WoW might be one of them, I'm not sure. What fps are you getting in WoW??

    at mediocre usage of spell effects (idling in a capital city) i get 45-50. Alone in the wilderness about 100 and raiding about 30. But I've played on a friends PC (don't know his specs) and he had like 50-60 while raiding and 100 idling in a capital city.

    WoW caps the fps at 60 when Vsync and with it off I think it caps at 75 if I remember.

    yep Correct there on the capness just don't remember what the caps are exactly.

    Drivers for GFX are new , downloaded with the ATI Catalyst Control Center today... can someone explain what I did wrong? Altho imho I did everything by the book.
    ok so you upgraded from Nvidia grfx to ATI/AMD grfx....and you said everything was fresh installed.
    Did you uninstall Nvidia driver and use driver cleaner to clean up the registry first before you install ATI driver?

    I did a complete format of my windows partition. Everything was brand new installed.

    @ Kaganader , I'm not sure what you're talking about because I got over 75 fps even on this PC but only when I'm alone in a zone.
