Im getting all the fps i could ever want or dream for... but about every 20-30 seconds i have a good lag that builds up a bit and shoots the FPS way down for 5 seconds or so... and its a huge huge problem in a raid i go down to 1fps or lower... and when its done lagging it goes back to perfectnes... i got 400w power supply idk of that would be the problem or not... any answers?

Re: Problem in wow
You can bet that the power supply is NOT pushing out what your PC is demanding. When there is a change in the game that pushes performance, the video card draws more current to process the frames at the speed of the game. (I'm assuming that you do not have a SLI rig). And of course it is a HUGE problem with the RAID. For one, having 2 hard drives writing and reading at the same time takes TWICE the power all the while trying to pump out graphics. More than 2 hard drives, and your PC probably won't even boot (and if it does it will shut down because of overdraw on your psu). My suggestion is to get a MINIMUM of a 650 watt psu, as long as you're not running SLI. If you are running SLI, I would go with a 700 watt or better. But just remember, you get what you pay for. A great DEAL may not be so great in the long run!! Good Luck!!!

Your graphics card may be performing pooly because it is too hot. Ensure that the tempreatures are within range. You don't want it over 65deg Cen. Install at least one fan in your computer's chassis. Clean the graphics cooler and the CPU cooler of dust, this will increase airflow and reduce those temperatures.
You may need an upgrade either CPU, Graphics or RAM.
I can't tell you for sure as I don't know the secifications of your Gaming Rig.
Post them and I will tell you if it is your hardware.
So from can i see this card does not have really any true online ratings. However to let you know lag can come from a lot of different places. Memory, processor, having a slow FSB on the motherboard. I mean a lot of thing can play into these problems. You would have to provide a full system build out of what you have to try to troubleshoot any problems not just this video card.
Hello there After the update this normally happnes for these cards OK what needs to be done is on the graphics bar the settings this needs to be turned down Then in the effecs section all of them need to be turned down a little at a time and then test as you are doing this till you get the fps that you are wanting Plus depending on the graphics card you may want to have the g force rad 6500 series or the latest one the gm recommends we have had this problem till we get the new graphics card and our problem went away ok ? Hope this helps Best regards mike
You are overheating. The frame rate drops as a protection to let it cool down a little, otherwise your card would get fried.
Sometimes less is more... reduce overclocking to a level the cooling fans are able to maintain a temperature low enough to not trigger the emergency break. You'll loose a few FPS at the benefit your system behaves more stable and has a longer life. Rule of thumb: a raise of 10°C in average operation temperature of any IC reduces its lifespan by 50%...
most computers systems have certain drivers configuration setups for certain games so you dont have that problem.
control panel, open up personazation,open display setting, find advance setting, open the folder that matches the type of graphics card you are using.
open the control center

The 260 gtx is a nice card but ATI just came out with their new cards and the Radeon HD 4850 is faster for about $100 less than the 260GTX.
But WOW uses an older graphics engine and low poly count models with that cartoony look. WOW will run great on some fairly old hardware so if he is using that computer for WOW only and is running SLI then there is no reason to upgrade. He probably has the resolution maxed out and the detail settings maxed out. If he is playing on a 32" 720p widescreen TV then the resolution should be set to a maximum of 1280X768. The rest of the settings should be adjusted to maximize the experience to your liking.
Some LCD TVs to add lag because of the image processing that is hapenning behind the scenes, some TVs have a gaming mode that minimizes this lag. Also your internet connection could be the culprit causing your lag.
In the end you do not need an new video card to play WOW. If he wanted to play Crysis with high detail then that would be a different story.
Hmmm. The blue screen isnt a good think. Even though people say what kind of model a dell computer is, doesnt describe the processor, memmory modules...how much...speed etc.
You need to uninstall your graphics drivers.
Download ccleaner and drivercleaner. Do a scan with both. Do a full driver clean with driver cleaner because it clears the junk out of your registry. Make sure you do a reg backup with both programs.
Now you can restart your computer and install the latest drivers.
the x600 card is a little on the outdated side and can probly run the game on low to medium. Start with 800x600 resolution and turn aniostropic and antiliasing off. Turn everything off that you think is necessary, start the game, and see how it runs. Download fraps so you can see your fps. If you get about 60 than you can turn a setting up. If you get 30 or lower, turn your settings down.
I hope this helps. Please contact me if you need any further advies. I also want to say that you should have at least a gig of memroy and hopefully 2 gigs to play the game at good settings.
