Hi all... I was hoping for some help here. I apparently don't know as much about building my own computer as I thought I did because something seems to be wrong with my setup.
The computer is a couple years old now and all this time I thought my struggles with my game playing (CodMW2, and BF:BC2) was just because I sucked. But now I'm starting to think things are out of whack.
So first,my setup....
CPU: I7-950, 3.06ghz, LGA1366
RAM: Corsair XMS3 6-gig Triple Channel DDR3 1600mhz (cmx6gx3m3a1600c9)
M\B: Asus X58 Sabertooth
Graphics: Asus EAH6850 (Radeon HD 6850), 1gig GDDR5, 790 mhz Engine core, 4000 mhz Memory Core
Power: 630w Raidmax.
Now with that said, I believe I should have a pretty decent computer but then I just can't understand why my games are jumpy, non-smooth, bad FPS, etc. After doing some reading I decided to run the following programs.
Yesterday while I was playing I was getting around 60 FPS. I have since change my bios setting to switch to "X.M.P." mode and now I seems to be a bit better yet my game playing issues still exists.
CPU = 6069, 3d Graphics = 2340, RAM = 1850, Overall Score = 2373
CPU (Physics) = 7557, Graphics = 3316, Combined = 3456, Overall Score = 3756
* May be worth noting that during the test, my FPS was 20 or less for practically every test.
FPS = 20.4, Overall Score = 513
So although I'm posting this in an overclocking forum, I guess I should say I'm not as concerned about OC as much as just wondering why these older games seem to be struggling. So I figured I'd ask the smart guys for any ideas or things I should check.
