I know i have an outdated computer but im hopefull that someone can help with this issue im having as i dont have $1500 to drop on a new machine. Well here goes. I probably should post my specs as i know my cpu is most likely the problem then ill go into the problem
cpu is q6600 oc to 3.2
mobo is nforce 680i lt sli with p30 bios
gpu is 460 gtx super clocked
700w power supply
8g gskill ram
drivers are up to date
aoc is on a seperate 250g 7200 hdd defraged everynight and os drive is defraged everyday
windows 7 x64
1900x1080 res.its native res.
Anything else you need to know let me know and ill post it.
it isnt a heat problem as my temps in speed fan,real temp etc, etc, all read normal 40-50 deg under load.Fraps shows 50-60 fps average.
so here is my problem.
I get these mini freezes/micro stutter/fps dips everytime i play. I have tried running everything on medium with everything turned off to high with minimal settings. Maybe im not setting something in nvidia control panel but i have everything to max performace i can get a screen shot of my settings when i get home but this is really driving me insane. Its immersion breaking and just plain sucks. Well hopefully someone can help with this. To all the replies that say get a new cpu, I cant. I dont have the money and i woul'nt for a long while. I just want to play without stuttering/mini freeze i dont care what it looks like...well i dont want to play on low settings.
Have a wonderful day and thanks for the look at this post
All the best
