Okay, i'm probably gonna post a wall of text right now. Sorry.
Today I reinstalled Windows 7 because I was trying to see if it's was fixing the Not responding
error. And yes, it did. But I still have this previous issue. When I run Windowed, and manually put the window on maximize, I will get fps spikes. It's mostly like it's going from 60fps to 58 or even lowered all the way to 50 fps. It's not a lot, but it's doing it every time I maximize in Widowed manually.
If I just run Windowed without maximize (so I can see a bit of my desktop), it won't
If I run Windowed and put on maximize (in-game feature), it won't
After the Windows 7 install, it of course wanted a lot of drivers. I choose the one from Windows Update. The only trouble about it, is that some Aero effects (like fading when shut/boot-up) won't be there.
In-game, I run 1680x1050 (with the monitor I play World of Warcraft on - I have 2 monitors), having V-sync on, and Triple Buffering on, otherwise i'll lag even more with Windowed mode with manually maximize.
Either way, if I turn V-sync off, I have like 80-120fps (well that what it tells me) but it's definitely not!
Oh, and I run Ultra Settings, if you can take a quick look at my specs, unless you already did, I'm totally able to handle it.
Speaking about DirectX, I think it's all updated after a clear Windows 7 install. If it isn't, can you put the on a link with download? Microsoft kind-of confused me around that.
My Nvidia GeForce GTX 260, doesn't support DirectX itself, but my dxdiag.exe tells me I'm running DirectX v. 11. But again, Windows 7 run with DirectX v. 11, and it's backward compatible.
Thanks for your reply Clinkz & simmo, it's kindly appreciated.
