I upgraded and now I lagg? [SOLVED]

Suppose you try disabling all of the C states and Speedstep. Does that make a difference?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Original PosterOP

Hey guys - I recently upgraded my computer and now I have 2 screens.  Considering I have a GTX680 I'm surprised that I can't run 2 monitors without any lagg?  I'm playing League of Legends but I'm only getting 20-40 fps instead of 60 on a single monitor.  My friends have worse off GPU's and they can run 2 monitors in 60 fps still.

 

Specs:

 

CPU - Intel Core i7 4770k

Mobo - Asus Sabertooth Z87

RAM - 16Gb DDR3 1866Mhz 

PSU - AX 860W Platinum

HDD - 2TB Western Digital Caviar Black x 2, 1TB Samsung and 60Gb SSD

GPU - 2GB GByte GTX680 OC WindForce3

Case - Corsair C70 White

Cooling - H110

Monitors - 2 23"

Keyboard - Corsair K60.

Mouse - Razer Naga Hex Wraith Red Edition.

Headphones - Gamecom 780's. 

 

EDIT:

 

     I tried it with a single monitor and it's the exact same.

 

     I tried back dating my drivers.  No luck.

 

     I tried re-updating my drivers.  No luck.

 

     Overclocked and lost a hard drive in the process.  I am now 1TB down.

 

     I switched the GTX 680 and HDDs into a different system (i5 3570, 8 Gb RAM, MSI Z77MA-G45 Z77 Ivy Bridge Motherboard, stock cooling in a very small case) and the system worked perfectly - I didn't drop below 60 FPS at all for some reason.

You only have 2GB of VRAM and that is not really enough for a newer games even on a single 1080p monitor, so you will have to get a GTX 780 or some sort of gaming GPU which has at least 3GB of VRAM. Other options are: lower your settings or get rid of the second monitor.

That's not the problem. League of Legends is very resource-light. You could max it out on an overclocked GT 440.

 

Anyway, what driver are you using?

My friend literally has a AMD 6780 HD Sapphire with 2GB VRAM and he's doing it fine, 60 fps in league with full settings and a guide on his other screen - constant 60 fps.

What did you upgrade exactly? The entire system or just a specific part? If it was a specific part did you uninstall the older drivers and clean them correctly or did you just reinstall Windows?

well it is not the 680, my friend has the same and runs LoL 250+ fps uncapped... I recenly got a second monitor and i didn't see any FPS change.

Must be a driver or some software

I am re-downloading the latest driver now and re-installing it.  Hopefully, it will work again but as of yet I'm at low FPS.

What kind of hard drive activity do you have?

Yep.

Do you have more than one PCI slot? Try putting the graphics card in a different slot, you may have it in a x8 slot.

2 x 2tb Caviar Black, a 1TB Samsung drive for junk and a 64GB SSD for my OS.

Is your hard drive for games having a lot of activity at all?

Yes. It will be an x8 slot. They're wired for x8.

Try downgrading your driver back to 314.22 .

I'll try it.

I have 3 PCI slots, it's in a 16x slot though.

 

EDIT: I think it's a 16x slot anyway.

Nope.

Also, the correct terminology is PCI-E. PCI is the legacy slot from years and years ago.

Right, I just re-installed my driver and no change.  What can I do now?

How did you go about doing that?

 

What need to do is:

Going to the add/remove and uninstall them (and everything nvidia).

Reboot.

Launching the 314.22 install and choosing "Custom>Clean Install>uncheck: geforce experience & updater (orsomething like that).

 

 

Now keep in mind that it might not be the issue but it will rule out the faulty driver family (320).

Just re-installed after removing them, done a clean install too.  Going to test it in a few hours when I wake up though I hope it works.
