    What kind of video card do you have?

    Most newer high end video cards require alot more power than 400 Watt.

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!!!

I have the nvidia 8500 gt and i play Wow and my fps is under 10 most of the time, it may get up to 13 some of the time, how can i get up past 40 fps at least or more

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.

Take care!

Have some problems with my asus extrema ax550 card (512mb) ... if i check a systemrequirements site for example it says a lot of game has to work perfectly in my computer but if i...

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.

I have this card overclocked to it's maximum potential . Recently experience a 10~15 sec low fps in every game . For example, from 100 FPS it drops to 25 and then back to normal . My pc is an avarage one....

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%...

Video cards

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.

Call Of Duty 4, Need SERIOUS help!!!!!!

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 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.
