Hey guys me again, with a couple questions for the techies that were so helpful last time.
(I was asking help on vid card upgrades the other day.) Let me show you why I have been looking into getting a new card:
FFXIV ran just fine the first time I played. But after the first time it crashed, I found the game to be stuttering every 1 second, very regularly. I thought this was just the server lag, but then i saw that it ran smooth if i went to very minimum graphics quality. I ran the benchmark today and sure enough, same lag spikes, and now i have a graph to represent it with..
= Graph from Benchmark. = Note the regular crash spikes, this is when the game gives little 'jerks' constantly while playing.
So I looked some things up, and tried the following solutions.
1 : Completely reintstall video drivers, making sure to wipe the traces clean in safe mode.
2 : Defragment HD, in safe mode (somehow 24% refuses to defragment)
The only other possible cause i found in my searching, is heat problems, causing the card to throttle itself. So i got some temperature monitoring software and had a look. Are these temperature readings normal? Seems like high temps to me, and the flame icons don't help! = Temperature readings = (btw i usually run with the tower panel open because the fan started kicking in really hard while gaming about a year ago.)
Thoughts? Suggestions? Thanks.
