Hello all,

I made this account just to post this because I have been having so much trouble. I recently built a PC, using parts from my old Inspiron 530 aswell as an Nvidia GeForce9600gt graphics card and Antec EA 650w power supply and 6gb of ram. I wiped my drive and did a clean install of Windows 7 and it really helped boost my performance but i'm having a lot of issues with in game frame rate (particularly WoW). I literally cant play it because the frame-rate is so bad (but the graphics look fantastic). I used to be able to run WoW and other games on my Inspiron 530 just fine when it was only at 3gb ram and had the same PSU and graphics card i mentioned above, so something changed recently...i just have no idea what...

Any help is appreciated, i wanna figure this thing out!

When you rebuilt this machine what parts were changed? What OS was on it before? What drivers do you have for your video card? Do you have anti-virus or other software that might be running in the background? What do the GPU temps look like?

Answering crwlngkngsnk's questions will definitely help.

Also, have you set the graphical settings too high? Drop them to low settings (all of them) and see if that changes anything. If frame rate improves, slowly move up the settings.

Hope this helps.
