Hello, new to the boards and was hoping someone could give me a little help with a recent problem. I recently installed the new release of directx (december 21st, 2005) and have been having extraordinary troubles with stuttering in my videogames (WoW and the new Star Wars Empires Demo are the only two games i've tried), making it impossible for me to play my games. Now, as any of you know, not being able to play WoW is a problem, so I have to get to the bottom of this! :tazz: I have an Nvidia Ti4600 videocard and have updated the drivers for it and have also uninstalled and reinstalled WoW. This has never happened before on my system, but during this time I did insert a new slug of 512 DDR into my computer, but I've done this before with the same memory and never had problems before. If anyone could offer some help troubleshooting this I'd really appreciate it, I'm stumped.

Hey

Your nVidia drivers are a little out of date there.

Click here

To download the latest version, use whatever download site you wish.

This driver is written for DirectX 9x so you should be right after this.

let me know how it goes

You know, I've installed these drivers twice already to the best of my knowledge and its still saying my drivers are outdated? Could it be possible that the installation isnt taking effect or something like that? Is there a way to cleensweep my old drivers before I install these new ones?
