Windows 7: New GFX-card

First off, unless you're running dual monitors, you should set the drivers to single display, not dual, which they're at by default.

The AA and AF settings are above what your screenshot shows... so scroll up to the top. I'd post a pic, but right now I'm on my i5-750, which has a 5850, so... you'll have to do this Jedi style and use the force, or wait till I get back from the dog park... I'll toss up a screenshot then... if you haven't already solved it. Since it's pretty straightforward, I have no doubt you will.

Thanks for the heads-up, I'm sure we'll solve this. Oh and! Should I run this for the game or just Windows general? You can add different types of profiles in the Settings.

.. I'll search a screenshot

and here it is.. ! old but!
Just let me know exactly what to do, and you earned my reputation

+ I forgot to mention, I only have the driver itself install. Not PhysX, 3D controller etc.

It's normal for FPS to drop/increase in WoW...depends on the area your in etc...go into your Video settings in game (Options) and set it to max everything. Wow doesn't use physx so thats no loss and it doesnt use 3D and except for water effects its not using DX11 either. Graphics are dated and one of my pet peeves about this game..it will be the same BS in another 2 xpacs..cheers

You've got your settings to enable 8xAA globally, overriding applications. Further, in the screen you're unable to select an AA mode, so it could be csaa, super-sampling or multi-sampling?

That's fine if you like it that way, but you should then probably use the programs tab to set up your games based on individual performance... some games you may not be able to run 8xAA. That's asking a lot, even for a 280.

Except for the AA mode, multi-sample, I let the game determine the settings.

**edit**

btw, it doesn't appear as if you're running the latest drivers. I don't see where you can enable Ambient Occlusions.

It's really bad compared to my old GTX 260

So Fumz, AA to x8, and what about the AF you talked about earlier? Should I pick multi-sample instead? And what to put multi-sample on if so, i'm not sure it has a number or just used what the game uses. Eitherway, i'm not sure there's such option in-game.

The first thing we need to do is agree that from now on you'll only post screenshots of your machine. Screenshots from Google can't help us. What I said was based on the screenshot you last posted. I thought it was your machine; thus, your current settings. Since that's not your machine, what I said may or may not apply... won't know until we see your settings.

Multisample is an anti aliasing mode. It's just one of a few different ways of implementing anti aliasing. It's also the fastest mode... but we're not there yet... Let's see the rig.

Actually, the game went a lot better today! But still drops a little not much. Just to 58 fps. What I did was, to restore the Nvidia Control Panel settings, if it changed something, I don't think so. Maybe it's because of the fresh-driver yesterday. Could been stressing it and heating it during the game. Anyways, still a little fps bug, had it on my old GFX card to. I don't know why. Anything to be changed here?

The heat monitor is taking in windows after clossing World of Warcraft
