I've been an active reader of MMO-Champion for quite some time now. I've scrawled all my options and after talking to blizzard tech support without any achievement; I wanted to see if any community forumers could possibly tell me what's wrong.
I have a new PC mid tower Corsair 600T. Intel Core i7 Sandy Bridge OC to 4.0 (from 3.6) liquid cooled. I have a nVidia GTX 650 1GB vCard which is also OC. 16GB of G. Skill ram, 2Tb of Hddrive. My network runs on two "antennas" which are placed on opposites sides of my room and my link speed is 144mbs while speed test shows 60+ download 20+ upload.
I can play WoW on ultra settings using 1920x1080 on a 24". World pvp with more than 100 players in one area, big BG's like AV and heroic dungeons. And LFR runs smoothly at 60 fps on ultra.
Now here is where the problem is, I transferred to Emerald Dream (I'm a world ranking elemental shaman) and as soon as I go into our 25 man raid settings, Everything absolutely goes horrendous, graphics get choppy on the lowest settings, FPS drops to 4-6 fps even on simple trash pulls. And as I burst I can only see like a frame every 1 second and pray that I'm actually bursting while spamming my buttons. I have a 2-3 second delay (I'm assuming because of the gpu) with 21MS so on heroic Blade Lord I have to judge and time everything on my own and 90% survive without getting one shot. Oh and I turned my screen res down to 1024x800 wide the lowest possible screen res where one button is the size of a golfball on my screen, it's terrible.
What is going on? Last night I almost rage quit because I hate doing 90k on heroic encounters when I know I can top dps meters effectively. 74k on heroic blade lord isn't cutting it (though other guildies say I was doing 90k).
I'm honestly beside myself, I don't know what to do, I can't buy a new vCard because I'm already $97,000 in debt with college and everything.
All video cards, bios and everything have the latest drivers and software.
Comments, suggestions, advice, halp? I would appreciate it so much ill add a special thanks to the digital film we are creating for film festivals (we will add your real or forum name upon private request for helping us with "PC" problems).
