sooo.... after being un satisfied with d3.... i try out some sc2.... i play a normal 2v2 and game ends up going the distance, im maxxed carriers(specifically did this to test graphics) i was maxed out. So come the huge battle, my fps drops to 20 and game looks like ****. Im not too sure but everyone else seems to be getting such better results with this computer then me......... is there something im doing wrong?

settings were on ultra.

thanks, mike.

No problem. That's what this place is for.

My system will be with me any day now so I will share as many D3/SC2 optimisation tips as I can.

... But that's besides the point - The G74 should be laughing at these games.

Is the only way to fix bottle necking to oc the gpu so it keeps up?

If I do oc my graphics card, my main setting is around 900/1800/1500, but I generally just keep it on the standard and I haven't had any issues with games yet

Hmm do you usually experience 60 fps + in games? Just curious, a lot of people seem to be running differently ..

with pretty much every setting on either high/ultra
WoW - 60+ fps
Skyrim - 50+ fps
Blacklight Retribution - 60+ fps (really good game btw 😄 )
Been a while since I've played BF3 but I think that was at least 40-45+ fps on ultra-ish settings (before oc'ing)
D3 beta - easily 60+ fps
Crysis 2 - 50+ fps
L.A. Noire - 60+ fps
Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning - 60+ fps

I think that's all I have installed atm, but yeah I never really have fps-related issues, just touchpad problems 😛

that's ridiculous man. it has to be your modded bios. i cant get fps close to that on my rig. i have bios version 209 but it doesnt do ****.

mannnnnn what the hell. id love to get fps like that. This is the only reason i have led to overclocking. On diablo 3 i get 30-55 fps, never goes over 60 and it pisses me off because thats what i bought this lap top for.
I have a clean install of windows and all drivers
modded bios 203 with throttlefix

d3 settings are 1920x1080 with everything on highest settngs, no vsync and no aa
