Hi, I have updated my graphic card lately from a:

http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127442
MSI N9800GT-MD512 GeForce 9800 GT 512MB 256-bit GDDR3
PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

To:

http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130817
EVGA 03G-P4-3668-KR GeForce GTX 660 Ti FTW+ 3GB 192-bit GDDR5
PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

MotherBoard: MS-7522

Processor IntelCore i7CPU 920 @2.67GHz (8CPUs) 2.7GHz

Asus monitor res - 1920 x 1200

I also have sufficient cooling.

For some reason my FPS only goes as high as 40 and dips to 2/5.
without all reflection, shade, shadows = 32-44 (56 rarely)

I would like to know why is my FPS so inconsistent being very low especially when i turn the camera. Is there a way to fix this

THanks,

Firstly, check your drivers, there can be issues when changing cards. It's an obvious thing to say but it's worth mentioning.

Also, more details of what game(s) you are playing and at what specific settings might be useful. While 40fps seems a bit low for that card, if you are trying to play something very demanding with all the settings turned up then it's actually pretty reasonable.

It's perhaps worth investigating your GPU usage too. If you aren't heavily taxing your GPU then something else is going on.

I play GW2 and Skyrim mainly, I bought the card to MOD Skyrim. I mod a LOT and obsessively, made oblivion to a 90gig game. All made up of mods ....

However the problem I'm having is when Im playing GW2 and the fps Dips are from playing that. It should run gw2 flawlessly, If i can't run gw2 flawlessly on all high settings. I don't think I have much of a chance with a heavy modded Skyrim.


Thanks for reply.

I have updated drivers, disabled integrated graphics, plugged directly to graphic cards, with V-syncs off.
