I have a Dell XPS, little over a year old...so much for warranty.
Anyone it was acting up a lot, so i took it in to a "expert" shop in town.
They troubleshot it and tested it, called saying it was the motherboard, which will need to be replaced, along with the case since Dell makes them that way... I said do it up.
Got it back in its new case, it works fine and no longer locks up, but if i try to play world of warcraft or battlefield, the frame rate is horrible. I NEVER had that trouble before.
Took it back, they suggested maybe video card problems, I said ill upgrade it anyhow.
Put in a nvidia 9800 GT, 512 meg.
Got it back, same exact problem, no change at all.
Game starts fine, log in fine, get somewhere into action, and the frame rate drops, gets to the point where its a complete studder, and some times even freezes up the computer
My xps is dual core 1.5's
2g of ram
300g hard drive, freshly formated.
Nvidia 9800 GT now...
Physx graphics accel
Im pretty clueless with computers, just am a complete nerd and enjoy my games.
Any suggestions?? ram trouble with new motherboard maybe?? hard drive fried?!!?
Any help would be much appreciated
