Default Gaming Question

i play world of warcraft on max setting
in daralon city my frame rate is only around 20 ~ 30 fps
is this normal according to my hardware?



core i7 920 OC to 3.8ghz
BFG GTX285 OCZ 1Gb 702Mhz Memory 1332 Mhz shader 1584 Mhz
6 Gb memory triple channel OCZ platium 1600MHz

i thought gtx 285 should be powerful enough to play most of game on max out setting with fps of at least 40+

The resolution you are running will be helpful, as a 19in and 30in are completely different playing fields for framerates.

I do not play WoW but i remember that there is some place, i think in the latest expansion, anyway in could be the "daralon city" where it is impossible to have good FPS no matter what. People with overkill build for Wow, like yours, never seem to have good fps here. Seems like it is not a problem from you, but the game itself, badly developped i guess. A patch may fix this later, perhaps.

To answer your quesion, it is normal. Your hardware eats Wow for breakfast. That place is commonly known for being slow, and you cannot change anything to fix it, unfotunately.

I'm not a Wow player, but the FPS problem is likely a server issue as the bulk of the game is run remotely

Yeah I play WoW, or atleast did till I maxed out my charecter in WoTLK and got board as hell, Dalaran is just a laggy city, you have to realise at any given time 80% of the server could be piled into that city as its both allied and horde and both races are graphically shown. My dual 9800GTXs which performed maybe 10% slower then your card still lagged all to hell there, try hitting I think its v? check your keyboard keystrokes and see what it is, but hit they key to show only peoples names, or not show any names at all, that will help frame rates ALOT, you dont need to see their rank/guild and pinging that info from their server everytime destroys framerates. We used to have to do it alot in raids back in the day, even in Everquest it made a huge difference.
