Hey guys, so I have a concern that I can't alleviate myself and have had no success with my other buddies that use their PC for gaming. I have Windows7 64bit, a 6 core AMD Phenom II, 8gb of DDR3 ram, and a 4gb nvidia GTX 460 video card. The system is liquid cooled to help with heat issues. I downloaded the GTA pack off of steam today and went to play GTA3 and I was getting choppy responses and then went to play Vice City and it did the same thing. I understand that games right now can't be processed over 6 cores, usually 2 at the most right now, but even with my system the way it is, why am I getting low FPS at some points which result in choppy/laggy play? When playing RIFT or World of Warcrack, I monitor my FPS and on ultra w/ no AA or AS Filtering, I top off at like 25-33 FPS. I don't keep V-Sync on, and in the cases of GTA, I don't turn on frame throttling either. I've seen people with lower system specs (4gb ram and 2gb gtx 470) able to run RIFT and WoW at approximately 60-70 FPS w/ all settings topped off to the absolute max.
Edit: To be exact, this happens randomly in the other games. Seeing as I'm frustrated with MMOs right now for 'other' reasons, I've decided to get back to single player gaming. Some games run fine, such as Portal 2, but if I remember correctly, I still can't run it using AA at max settings.
