Why am I still lagging in games, FPS issue?
Hi there, Im not too too good with computer things, but I know a good amount, just not so much about computer hardware that works with other computer hardware.
Anyways, my motherboard is MCP61PM-HM (if you google that it finds it). I run a minecraft server, and play a lot of games myself, including WoW, Minecraft, SWTOR, League Of Legends, Assassin's Creed, Batman, and a few more.
I just recently bought this graphics card for around $200, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560, I was told it is great and should make my games run smooth on atl east High graphics. This motherboard was a huge upgrade from my other one, which I find selling on ebay for $30 brand new lol.
With these specs, I still lag on games and have some FPS issues, on even medium graphics:
Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560
Processor: AMD Phenom 9500 Quad-Core Processor (4CPUs) ~2.2GHz
Memory: 6144 MB RAM
So I have a few questions:
1. Would upgrading my processor make my games run smooth on atleast High settings? They lag just as much as my old $30 graphics card.
2. Is my motherboard the problem?
3. What could possibly be preventing me from running on high graphics? On high graphics in most of my games, I run around 15 FPS.. and get random leg spikes, Assassin's creed it TERRIBLE!
(Also, I updated all my drivers, have messed around with settings in NVIDIA and stuff, it's honestly NO different than my old graphics card, pretty sure I should atleats notice ANY difference spending $200 on a new graphics card..)
Hope someone can help me out, thanks!
