Want new GFX cards, need suggestions

Alright I hate my GTX 570's so I want something better. Games at 60FPS lag on good quality.

Need two, I run 2-3 monitors.

Maybe it's my processor? I run this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115071

2 570's aren't enough?

also, how does something running at 60fps "lag"? do you mean microstutter?

I don't think so.

It jumps, I would have to video it.

if there are a few people on the server in the city I'm in it lags when I go through the crowd.

Your internet connection is the problem. Either server side or your side.

Yes, clearly your i7 2600 processor is the issue here, lol.


Unless you're playing games at insanely high resolution and the most demanding game possible, it's an internet issue like mouse said.

You are mos' def' trolling. WoW won't even come close to stressing an 8800GT... let alone SLI GTX570s.

You're asking us if the game you are playing lags a lot?


God I hope NASA doesn't start asking me if their spaceship flies okay.

If you are actually running the setup you claim to be, if WoW has any sort of stuttering or lag it is without the shadow of a doubt your internet connection.

Try something simple first like Speedtest, also see how the game performs in servers when you are around people and when you aren't; try to pin point when it starts to stutter.

The GPUs and CPU are fine. In my experience in the past with WoW is that it loves memory. Run a 64 Bit OS and have 8GB of system memory. Any lag past that is due to bandwidth constrictions.

Also, dont use a lot of add-ons in the game. Make sure the system is clean of spyware/viruses or anything else running in the background.

Edit: And if you do end up wanting to give one or both of those 570's up, ill be happy to pick them up from you. You're bound to be less than an hour's drive anywhere in Houston.

if your running wifi in your home check that it not open and you have people leaching your bandwith. also run ccleaner and malware byte. also check your mb and network card drivers are up to date. a lot of time when you build your own pc and use the driver disk with the mb the drivers are real old.
