Default Having Extreamly low FPS with 9800gt

Im running Vista Home edition 64x
4gb of RAM
AND Phenom x4 1.8hz 9140e
500 watt PSU
9800gt 1gb

Im trying to play an MMORPG called Runes of Magic.It's not graphics extensive but im having between 12-25 fps when im just standing around and like 3 when i start walking and i dont walk for very long cuz there's so much lag.So it basically mean i cant play the game.My settings are set to medium and the resolution i set it at is 1280x1024.I've always had low FPS with games with my card but i always thought that i was around normal fps because i wasn't always a gamer and that was my first card.

This card had an issue before when the fan would jam and the card would overheat.i knew it had this issue and i always continued to use it.I eventually got sick of the clicking noise of the fan getting jammed and i sent it in to PNY and they fix it and sent it back within a week.Now i figured that the card was fine since it stopped buzzing and the fan ran fine and it would overheat.I still get crappy FPS.Im starting to think that this card is just plain faulty.I just recently updated the cards drivers and with no improvement....Atleast not noticeable to me.

Please help me resolve this issue =D

Dude this forums is not as fast as you think anyways

Make your Anisotropic settings to 0 and that might be why and also make your
anti aliasing setting on 0

What is the CPU load in game? Also, try playing the game with a temp monitor such as everest open, then alt tab out of the game and immediately record the temps.

This is gonna sound ridiculous, but ale you sure the monitor is plugged into the graphics card itself, not the onboard video? It's happened before...

Try playing at the lowest settings. If it works then increase it until you get a lag you can't live with.

Did you download/install the latest drivers?

Probably because almost all motherboards have a feature to automatically disable onboard video when a discrete gpu is present.

I use nividia nTune as a monitor but i can't get my gpu load to show up in any program.I have the latest drivers and yes the monitor is plugged into the graphics card hahaha.

CPU temp-41-43
GPU temp-77-79
GPU Cooler Speed-60-80

I know the game works fine on lowest settings but the quality is complete crap and 9800gt should be able to run man games fine but it's just not putting out for me hahaha

Your CPU is a quad core at 1.8 ghz. You may need to overclock it. This problem may not be solely based on your GPU.

Default Re: Having Extreamly low FPS with 9800gt

i'd say that your gpu has to be faulty. I just took a look at the specs and the game requires a radeon 9600 to run at minimum settings, your 9800gt should be able to max it out easily. the only problem that i can see might be your processor, the game needs a P4 at 2.0GHz while you have a phenom x4 at 1.8GHz. If the game is single threaded then that could be your problem.

I wouldn't doubt my gpu is fault.Thank god i have a 5 year manufacture warranty .I never understood how to fully understand requirements.What does P4 mean and same thing with Single threaded.I'd overclock it but i have no experience with it.

P4=Pentium 4

When coders make an application then they have to program it to utilize a maximum amount of threads(or cores in most cases). Its a whole ton of work to program something to utilize more than 1 core. Most programs today only use 2, so if your game is only made to use a single core then your processor is worse than a pentium 4.

Is your computer entirely custom built and are you using the stock cpu cooler?

Ehh it's stock but i wouldn't mind upgrading my cpu cooler.Coolers better and i get to overclock =D

quick question about OCing do i have to go into my BIOs to OC or are there programs that i can do this from my desktop?When i go to my BIOs it doesn't give me to options to change the FSB etc.

It's got a slower clockspeed but I definitely wouldn't say it's worse. Clock speed is one of the least important factors with a processor, and is only useful for comparing processors in the same series. The actual architecture is what makes the difference.

if it is single threaded then he'd be better off with a faster P4 cuz the original phenoms weren't the greatest

The P4 is also a quite old processor. I still think the phenom would at least keep up with it.

but it might be the reason as to why hes playing at minimum settings. i just noticed that you have a 5770, do you want a second one?

I agree that it's most likely the biggest factor here, but I do not agree that you can judge a processors performance based solely on clock speed, that's all.

Yeah, I would love a second, why?

Pentium 4's are crazy slow for their clock speed. I'd keep the Phenom II and pick up a new motherboard and overclock it if the BIOS is locked.

Well, we don't even know if the processor is the problem though O_o
