Hey guys (and gals), Was wondering if I could pick your brains for some ideas on how to increase my FPS in Lord of the Rings Online. I'm not a huge gamer though I do enjoy playing mmo's. The problem is that my fps sucks! Typically while just roaming around I have around 40-55 fps but when ever I do an instances or raids or even come into populated towns it can drop all the way to 2-8 fps....it seems very spikey at times when many people are around. No other programs are being ran while playing the game. So any suggestions would be awesome. Let me know if u need more info then what I give as followed: AMD Phenom X4 9600 Black Edition (quad core 2.3GHz) RAM 4 sticks of 2.0gb PC2-6400 (400MHz) so 8gb total XFX Radeon HD 5870 video card (1gb GDDR5) 1 Hardrive ST3640323AS ATA ACER X223W resolution 1680x1050 refresh 60H (I can drop the resolution to 1440x900 and use 75h refresh but doesn;t help with the problem) Windows 7 64bit All drivers are updated and are being utilized. I'm also overclocking as much as I can (safely) with my video card and CPU I have also tried to adjust the in game graphics by basically reducing everything to improve performance though it still will hover around the 2-8 fps while in groups or raids. Thanks for the help.
